May 2016

I have had in total 15 pregnancies.

I have 8 children and 11 sleeping.

I have lost 3 sets of twins. 11 weeks incomplete. 12 weeks incomplete and 13 weeks incomplete.I had a triple pregnancy, 1 miscarried 1 ectopic and my lo is 12 in July. Then another complete miscarriage at 12 weeks. Then another incomplete silent miscarriage at 11 weeks.

Finally a silent incomplete blighted ovum pregnancy. Somehow in between all the losses a pattern emerged in the living babies. 2 girls 2 boys 2 girls and 2 boys.

It is heart breaking. We are considering one more yet we aren't sure. Maybe November 2017 we will make the decision.

For now sleep tight my angels.

Love mummy and daddy x
