Story of #miscourage by Sarah Perry,
This morning my husband and I faced the devastating news that we had lost our baby.
The hardest thing is this is our 3rd miscarriage. Our first was miscarriage of triplets at 7 weeks in 2012, our second miscarriage was Valentine's weekend 2016. There are no words to explain the heartache and the pain, only those who have gone through the experience of a miscarriage can know those feelings.
This time we have been so lucky to have had the support of a Tommy's miscarriage team midwife at our side and the support she has given us over these last few weeks, and in particular today, has been incredible. To have someone at the side of me and my husband as we were given the news and took it in, is indescribable. For the first time during a miscarriage I felt I wasn't alone from a medical perspective.
I have been completely numb since we were given the bad news this morning. I have felt confused and guilty as to why this has happened yet again. I have questioned over and over what I have done to deserve this, why me? Of course there are no answers, but the pain is raw and to the core and I can't explain the pain.
The only peace of mind I have at this precise moment is that I know I am not alone, I know I have many people around me to talk to, to cry with and to just grieve with.
I thank Tommy's from the bottom of my heart dor being there, and as I take each day as it comes and grieve for my little Baby Boo, I give thanks for everything they have and are doing for me.
