Story of #miscourage by Annabel

I went to my 12 week scan, excited as anything. I couldn't wait to see the little heartbeat, the life that I had been growing inside my belly.

To my devastation, I was stopped in my tracks. There was no heartbeat. I started crying uncontrollably, my heart was broken. 

It wasn't until a year later that my partner and I tried again, we got to the 12 week scan and to my surprise I saw the heartbeat, it was the best feeling in the world. My midwife kept a close eye on me, I heard the heartbeat often, i heard it one week prior to my 17 week scan, but at my 17 week scan there was no heartbeat... my heart broke all over again. 

I was forced to go into labor and deliver my baby with no heartbeat, I had to bury my baby. Two things I would never wish upon anyone. 

The worst thing about it all is feeling alone, no one should feel alone when your going through something like this which is why I wholeheartedly support share your #miscourage story.
