Thank you for sharing. I am 37 and my pregnancy was a "miracle" after not being able to get pregnant for 12 years. We weren't trying so when it happened it was like a double miracle after all of those years of trying. We did adopt our son almost 8 years ago, so that helps in the fact that I am a mom now, but the pregnancy issue still made me sad. So when I miscarried at 12 weeks it was like a cruel joke had been played on us. I have dealt with so much anger, depression, anxiety... It has just overwhelmed me. My husband and I made the decision to have a Mirena implanted because at my age, with all of the risk factors, and how emotional I have been over this, I just knew I couldn't do it again. But then that was an emotional choice too. And every time I have my period I plummett into some abyss. Especially when I am on my period over the weekend because it just replays the whole scenario in my head every time.
My therapist was not helping at all, but we are getting a new EAP at work and the counselor we are going to use seems much more up my alley. I am still going to the Psych for meds, but want to try and go down on those as well, if I can.
I wish you luck in your efforts to conceive and carry a baby to term. None of it is easy and is so heart wrenching.
At least we have each other!
Thank you again for posting!
