sometimes i wonder how much older i look since the end of november.
d just read this over my shoulder and told me i don't. it's nice, but i don't really believe him. i feel a hundred years older. surely i must look it too?
According to What to Expect when you're Expecting (584 pages long; one 11 page chapter on pregnancy loss and stillbirth, so less than 2% of the book [although miscarriage is mentioned in passing in two or three other places]. that seems really quite out of whack), anxiety is even more common following miscarriage than depression is. this and this would seem to bear that out.
and yes, for me, it's true. (although i'd be surprised if there are many women who, following a miscarriage, don't get some or all of the symptoms listed under 'acute stress disorder' on this page, and for more than a month.)
i'm incredibly anxious. i'm hoping it dies off, in time. but articles such as this - detailing how pregnancy complications are more likely following miscarriage - do nothing to reassure me.
