Ease the Worry

If you've had a miscarriage, you know the concern that comes with being pregnant again afterwards. Stress is no good for our bodies in large consistent doses... So I was wondering.

How do you ease worry when pregnant after a miscarriage? The only thing that kind of works for me is distraction, but I feel like there must be healthier alternatives. What do you guys think?

    It was hard, especially after my first miscarriage and Matthew (second loss) because those were my toughest. I don't think I ever completely relaxed until I had that baby in my arms. As awful as this sounds, my human-ness even ruled over my faith. My head told me one thing and my heart told me another. It was a battle of the wills so to speak. I journaled and prayed a lot and those are supposedly a stress relievers - I never did have high blood pressure etc. that can be associated with stress. Though I did have anxiety attacks in my sixth full-term pregnancy, I just cried and breathed through them.

    I think keeping busy is good. I was always busy with my other children and they needed me so they were my distraction, plus our little online business at the time (2005).

    Yeah, Job, should snap anyone out of whatever they are going through because, seriously, he went through A LOT. I cannot even imagine what my response would have been if I had of been him.
