I've had every test under the sun and no explanation could be given. My heart broke every time as it doesn't get easier. A specialist in Glasgow decided he was going to try this new drug just in case. The next pregnancy was confirmed and the baby had heartbeat and it all would begin.

I was started on clexane injection every day at 8am. I got past 3 months and began to have hope. The injections continued right up to 39 weeks and my miracle daughter was born 41 weeks.

She is now 13 years old and the joy of my life. She is an only child as I believe she is a miracle gift and could never have coped with another pregnancy in case miscarriage happened again. Never give up hope, stay strong and remember miracles do happen x
