What I would do... do whatever you feel comfortable doing. If you feel like you can jet out for an hour run, go for it. If a 20 minute swim is all you can muster do that. If you don't feel like doing anything, don't. Just do what your body & mind tell you is right.
Edit: Oh & take care of you! If you need a piece of chocolate cake, you should have it - and think of me because I miss it!
I know I'm promiscuous, but in a classy way
There is no harm in training - just listen to your body. Yes, training will help with both the emotional turmoil and the cramping as long as you do not over do it. Even though it was early, your hormone levels are shifting wildly, and your uterus needs to heal. Make sure you eat right and get rest.
If you feel like training go for it.
It is also perfectly acceptable to grab a bottle of alcohol of choice and go to bed! regardless of when in the pregnancy, it is still a loss and you need to allow yourself to feel that and mourn it. We become mothers when we see 2 lines on that stick....the loss and the tears that go with it are very real.
I am glad you have good support.

Doc, I never even thought about the fact my uterus would be healing. The hormones fluctuating I understood better, but the healing I never gave any thought to, so THANK YOU for bringing that to my attention. I appreciate it a lot! And you are right: there is something different and wonderful about knowing that you are. It's sad that it's not meant to be right now, but I know those feelings will pass with time.
Today, my body is fatigued, so I took your advice and spent some time talking and giggling with a good friend.
Thanks, again, for all the wonderful suggestions and information! :)

To those of you who have miscarried, sometimes more than once, my heart goes out to each and every one of you. It's a hard thing to have to go through, and I am grateful for all the support you have given me.
I'm feeling much, much better, though not up to training...yet. My body is tired, and I'm giving it a lot of TLC. But, I'm dreaming about training, so where the mind leads, the body wants to follow. All in good time, I know...for everything.
Take care of yourself.
