You can try hot tea or soup to get your bowels moving.
I think that the best thing I did during the beginning of my pregnancy after miscarriage was to stay off diaperswappers. It can be a good place of discussion and support but with many stories of miscarriage or just issues in general(even the smallest ones) made me worry more. I had never thought of second trimester miscarriages until diaperswappers. It would be a great place for support but honestly its just made me worry so much more, to the point where i had a dream I delivered early and baby didn't make it. I've also had dreams of delivering a healthy fullterm baby and choose to focus on those rather than the other making me worry. I honestly didn't choose to accept this pregnancy until I was in my second trimester. It was hard the first trimester, but now that I'm 22 wks, I take it day by day.
My advice is to stay positive and don't try to relate every little thing to possible miscarriage symptoms. Make sure your giving baby a peaceful body to grow and nourish in. There are no textbook pregnancies, every women and pregnancy are different. Try to take delight in the baby you've been blessed with. And don't see this as your last just yet. That just adds pressure.Take it slow, your family can always decide on that later.
to you!
