#misCOURAGE story by Rosie Morris,

I had a loss at 5 weeks in 2011 and then just a few days ago i lost my baby at 8 weeks pregnant, of all places the bleeding started as i was walking round Tesco.

I then went to the hospital to sit in a bed for nearly 3 hours covered in my own blood and clots then had to clean myself up afterwards. I was sore and upset as it was, and i was losing a lot of blood.I then got moved to a ward where they gave me a trans vaginal scan which was agony.

The doctor tried to get me to stay in hospital which i didn't do, as they argued i was having an ectopic which i knew was wrong as my pregnancy was seen in my womb.

The day after, i went to midwifes and had scans to be told it was just a miscarriage and they apologised for rudeness of the hospital staff etc. I'm absolutely heartbroken and lost sorry for the long rant.
