It’s Day 1 today. I’m still having those uncomfortable uterine pains which I relate to my last pregnancy, but upon googling others experiences of post-miscarriage PMS, it all seems fairly normal.
It can take 3-4 months for the body to return to normal. Until then, the symptoms can often make you feel as though you may be pregnant again. Which is exactly what I am experiencing. It is quite different to my usual PMS and period pain. For me, as with some other women who have written over the net, I am experiencing lower back pain, cramping which is more like a constant dull ache or stretching sensation, nausea, mild breast tenderness and tiredness. All of which, can be symptoms of pregnancy! It can all be so confusing!
Last cycle, I began experiencing these things right after ovulation. This time, they started about a week ago, along with a mood change of feeling quite sad one morning, which is a common PMS thing for me.
The positive thing is that this is a 30 day cycle. Having always had irregular cycles - , they can be anything from 30 – 36 days - having a 30 day cycle is a good sign for me. I still have the hope that having experienced a pregnancy, my body has been reminded on what it has to do and is making the changes already.
As for what to do next, I have had enough of waiting to get pregnant. I’m getting in with the OB asap!
