Miscarriage and Denial - August 12th 2011, 03:15 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I miscarried around 4 weeks. Ever since I found out, I've wanted to take pregnancy tests.

Like, I just keep hoping they will be positive.

I guess this is denial. Its just weird, and to the point I'm wasting money on this...

So yeah, if you know anyone who experienced something like this, or just explain if you were in denial and how you accepted it.

Thanks.

It's natural for you to miss the pregnancy. I mean you lost a baby - that's a really really hard thing to get over.

Having never been in your position, it's hard to know what to say, but have you looked into grief counselling? That's what my auntie did when she miscarried at 7 weeks, and it really helped her cope.

Otherwise, I think only time will help heal your wounds. I'm not saying you'll ever completely get over it, in fact, you probably won't. But time will make it hurt less.

I'm sorry for your loss <3

Kelly
I did the same thing when I lost my daughter. I took pregnancy tests from a week after I lost her (December, 2009) til June 2010. Almost once/twice every month. It was really burning a hole in my pocket so I stopped. This time around though, I decided NOT to do that because I've been coping by writing and talking to my boyfriend. I know you're in denial about it but that's not the best way to cope Like Kate mentioned, maybe some kind of grief counseling would work for you. And time does make it easier but it doesn't go away unfortunately :/ I'm sorry you're going through this and as always, I'm here<3

Thank you both. I'm in counseling, but I haven't told my counselor yet. I guess that might be the denial.

I'll talk to him next week about it. At least mention it.

Brittany, yeah I've taken one about once every week since.

It took me until this year to tell my counselor. And I haven't told her about Kaiden yet.

Good luck mentioning it
