I’ve done a lot of internet searching the last few days about miscarriages and have found a lot of information. But what I haven’t found is any information or anyone’s stories about the type of cramping that they have had. Aside from the standard “period like” cramps that are to be expected, I’ve also had sharp stabbing pains that are more muscular and today, a new type of pain. It is higher up in my abdomen and comes and goes like a pulse.
I did read one ladies comment that the sharp stabbing pain could have been the cervix shrinking back into pre-pregnancy shape, but it was isolated comment and certainly there has been no official explanation anywhere talking about this. Not even my doctor gave any explanation for it. But in reverse when I was feeling these pains when I was just pregnant, she did say that it was normal. Once again, no explanation that it may have been the cervix expanding and once again, I got that thought from a forum.
So, if anyone has any thoughts or experiences or “official” information on this, it would be much appreciated!!
I am feeling much better emotionally today and with the exception of these new abdomen pains, better physically too.
Several weeks ago, we organised a bushwalking trip with friends and that is today. I’m not sure how I will go, but certainly I will go better today than I would have even yesterday. I will take it easy and see. But being out in the bush in the best place for me. It speaks to my soul and lifts my spirits. It always makes me so happy! So, even if I have to hang back or sit and rest while the others go on, surely it’s going to be good for me. Fingers crossed that that will be the case and it won’t do the opposite and wear me out again!
I will let you know!!
Bye for now,
love and light,
