Feelings after a first miscarriage

Patient

Q: I spent my 19th birthday in emerge to find out i had a miscarriage. I have never been to emerge before and everything they did was greatly overwhelming. I am currently in college and as soon as i found out i was pregnant i knew i was unable to have a baby and my original idea was to have an abortion anyway. Even though that was my orginal thought, i am still unsure, confused and upset about the situation. I woke up this morning feeling weak, sick to my stomach and had a splitting headache. I had to email my teacher informing him i was unable to attend class this morning. Did I do the right thing? Am I being silly? If not why do I feel this way? how long will these feeling happen?
