When I was young I had my first daughter luckily with no complications. Seven years later when my husband and I were ready to add to our family we never knew how difficult it would be. I suffered from two miscarriages and two ectopic pregnancies. 3 out of 4 times I ended up in an ambulance being rushed in to hospital. My final ectopic resulted in me loosing my right tube halving my chances of having another baby. Fortunately, Lily came in to our lives and I am currently pregnant with baby number three.
