He was born a beautiful little boy; we named him George

The scan predicted my baby had died maybe a week after 12 week scan - where he had looked so healthy.

I was 15 weeks pregnant in February when I started having period-like pains that took my breath away. I told myself it was just stretching pains but went for a check up anyway.

No heartbeat.

The scan predicted my baby had died maybe a week after 12 week scan. Where the baby had looked so healthy. I had to give birth, he was born a beautiful little boy, and we buried him in our local church, and named him George. Blood tests say my thyroid wasn't working very well but is now ok.

George's placental biopsy showed he was healthy. If I had my thyroid checked and treated he may still be alive and we wouldn't have to go through this pain.

Hugs to every mum out there who's ever been through this it seriously is the worst.
