How do people cope after experiencing a m/c? I have now been through the worst experience of my life. Having been told that there was no heartbeat at our 13 weeks scan, everything since has just been a blur. I was encouraged to have medical management, after my gut feeling was to have surgery. I should have gone with that. The experience I went through at hospital was traumatic. The ward was horrible, the nurses unsympathetic. Lack of communication; I was left in a room on my own for three days. Not one person asked me how I was feeling. I even had to ask for lunch on one day as they forgot I was there. So following a shit situation made worse by this, I am left feeling all over the place. I am having time off work for a few weeks and my partner and family have been amazing. But I just cannot shake off this anxiety. It's now affecting my sleep - I am having night terrors. I have this permanent knot in my stomach. I am doing all the things that I would advise my patients (Im a mental health nurse) and they help short term - exercise, talking, activities etc.. But its just awful. I was drinking wine every evening (not excessively) but now Ive stopped as its only short term relief. I am going to the doctors this evening. I even tried to read some of the threads on here to see if they help, but I just cant bring myself to do it. what other coping strategies have helped for people? what has helped in general? We want to get pregnant again as soon as really, but Im getting confused with all information out there. Do I need to take a pregnancy test after the m/c? I was given no advice/support/information from the hospital.
