I'm pregnant!! That's what we said we couldn't hold it in and had to tell everyone!! Such a happy time.... 

But then I wake up wet in the night red sheets under me! Changed everything a trip to the hospital confirmed! We were no longer pregnant as we had had a miscarriage??

That night I woke screaming feeling like I was in pain but it was not physical pain it's was my broken heart wishing it had all been a dream wishing my baby was back in my belly!

4 times I faced this! 4 baby's I lost, each time very different, and each time treated different and offered different after care with no reason why this could be happening, the one thing that's stuck in my head someone said...

'be thankful you can even get pregnant!!' ( really)

Scared with little information as to why this was happening to me and each time suffering behind closed doors! Until had enough of the silent and pestered my doctor and got to see a specialist and now I have my baby boy who is beautiful.

I will never forget the pain it will never go away! It will stay with me always, the graphic images in my head, you don't need me to explain but miscarriage really does need to be spoke about more often and women should be supported and told what to except the shock of what actually happened you are not prepared for as it's not spoke about.
