Thank you for your input, ladies. It is better today, except for my hand and wrist. You may be right... stress can do an awful lot to a person. My oldest daughter gets the sternum pain once in a while too... and she has little to stress her out, by her own admission. She spends most of her day working on her artwork. Well, whatever it was, I'm just glad it is letting up.
I have started giving myself reiki again every day... I haven't taken the time to do that in a long time. I'm hoping it will help with the stress and the TTC. This is just our rough time of year. Hubby is a school bus driver, and September & October are always times of low pay due to lack of hours over the summer.
I am doing what I can on my end, and am trying to take your advice and relax a bit too.
I'm trying to let go of old baggage and begin with a clean slate, so to speak. It isn't easy, but I'm working on it.VM
... about the bleeding... my second and third miscarriages both bled a long time. It wasn't heavy for a long time, but the trickling went on for several weeks. With my second, I think a small bit of placenta was retained, and once that passed, the bleeding stopped quickly. With the third, well, it was a long process from beginning to end. Eat well, get rest and try to take care of yourself. Did you have a D&C after the induction? I never had that with my miscarriages... they just did their own thing, so I don't know if that would make a difference or not.
