I know that there are others here who are coming in off a miscarriage, and I wanted to hear how things are going for you ladies.
Overall- I feel pretty positive and excited (which is why I wanted to put this here- the threads I saw in the pregnancy post loss seemed a little glum and I wanted to hear more good news), though I'm definitely more cautious and not thinking about my pregnancy as much as last time.
I generally have a pretty laid-back approach to pregnancy- I am pretty active and work out most every day, had been drinking some coffee (still less than 2 cups regular a day), and had intended to maintain my (healthy) lifestyle to keep a healthy pregnancy.
All this started to come in to question when I called my midwives about doing a fairly kick-butt full-body exercise class I recently had started. It's pretty intense and I wanted to ask about not doing certain activities, taking things down a notch, etc. At first I got the "do what feels right" thing until she looked at my file. She said "oh. You had a miscarriage in Oct? I would not go and stick to more low-impact activities- given your history".
It really hit me hard. I am a biologist and think I had a pretty scientific approach to my miscarriage (something wasn't right with the little one, and it was almost definitely not my fault), and this made me start to question if it was something I did and if I should try to do things differently this time. I've now switched to decaf and am not going to the class, but I wanted to know what you all think. Are you having a different approach this time? How are you feeling? For those that work out, what kinds of exercise are you doing? Are you much more anxious and cautious this time?
