#misCOURAGE story, 08/03/2017, by Jenna
It's May 2011 and I'm sat waiting to have my first scan... I'm waiting to go bear in mind I haven't been well with a kidney infection that knocked me off my feet...
My mum joins me and my partner as we enter the from the sonographer was quiet, she wasn't at all support.
I could see on the monitor a little body and it's little tiny features ... to be told... this isn't looking good.
The sonographer goes out and gets a second opinion and tells me that there was no heartbeat on the baby and that I had suffered a miss-miscarriage.
Apparently it's 1-4 women it affects all I could think was I'm that 1-4 why me.
I was 14 weeks but the fetus had died had 9 weeks 5 days.
I was sent straight to the women's clinic and numerous blood tests and talks to tell me what was happening to my body and how my body still thought it was pregnant.
I was given a hormone tablet for the hormones to stop in the pregnancy and later to return to hospital on the 28th May. I found out on May 25th. I had three tablets and tramadol and the fetid passed as a whole...
The worry of being left three days with my fetid not alive yet my body was still thinking it was pregnant.
The staff monitored me and came accessed the little fetus that I had passed I couldn't look because I was scared but I knew I had to have a small glance, after this happened I was discharged 3 hours later, and told to come back to the hospital for a scan a week later.
I was scared and frightened in case something showed and hadn't passsd but everything was ok.
A year later 23/05/12 I gave birth to a beautiful little baby girl, I was not monitored during my pregnancy as I had a previous miscarriage and I was told I would be considered more cause of this.
I was scanned at 12 weeks and 20 weeks and again at 36 weeks to check for the placenta.
To have my little bundle of joy a year later to the anniversary date made me so happy and also sad.
But the best gift of all is bringing a life into the world.
