Lingering Symptoms Finally Fade

Today I am grateful.

A week ago I had a miscarriage and today I am finally rid of the lingering symptoms.

No more bloating.

No bleeding.

& no morning all-day sickness.

I am still dealing with the hormonal re-balancing.

The insomnia.

But I’m grateful my body is no longer acting pregnant. It’s not anymore. & that makes it easier on my mind.

Sometimes it’s the small things to be grateful for – to make this all easier to deal with.
