It is true, the pain of miscarriage is very hard to put into words. For me there is just an over whelming feeling of sadness.
Also friends and family can really put there foot in it when the try to help. My mum is forever doing that. I now seem to be over-sensitive to whatever she says. The other day she said that something like 1 in 3 pregnancies end in miscarriage, which made me angry because I felt she meant that everyone suffers from one, so whats the big deal. I corrected her and said that it is not known how many but it is estimated between 1 in 8 and 1 in 5... Am sure mum didn't mean to hurt me, I think I just would rather she didn't say anything sometimes.. Maybe it is my hormones playing up again.
Am so sorry to hear of your loss.I hope and pray that you are healing as well as can be. The first miscarriage for me, was the most difficult. I could not stop crying but thanks to this forum and my husband, I did get some consoling words and prayers. Everyone is different, and I do believe every miscarriage is tough and heart breaking no matter how many times we've had one or how many weeks.
To answer your question, after the 1st miscarriage it took 6 months before I got my period ( I had a d&c at 12 weeks). My doc said this wasn't very normal, but just as I was about to go for an ultra-sound, I got my period,:D
My other 3 miscarriages have been different. My period seems to have come straight back to normal afterwards, (but each was a natural miscarriage at 5/6 weeks). I guess everyone's body is different. If you are worried maybe pay your doc a visit and see what (s)he says..
Wish you all the best in 2008, God bless, will say a few prayers for you
