I was going about my daily routine, getting the children ready for school and dropping them off with the youngest still at home. I started cleaning then suddenly I was doubled over in pain and rushed to the toilet. I saw I was bleeding heavily, a clump which was to be my baby came out. It was in the first 8 weeks but even so, finding out I had lost a baby I didnt know I was carrying was the most painful thing I've ever felt. It hurt more than the physical pain of the miscarriage. It's been 6 years and I still feel that pain as if it were yesterday.
