#misCOURAGE story, 25/01/2016, by anonymous

I was only pregnant once, but I always had a fear of having a miscarriage since women in my town had ones when I was little.

I got pregnant two months after we stopped birth control.

Everything was fine with my pregnancy, but now something haunts me, with my first checkup, the docter asked me if my periods are sometimes late and I said sometimes two or three days but never a week.

The docter then didnt bring it up again or that something was wrong.

I was in my 12th week of pregnancy and wanted to tell the world, but then I started bleeding early in the morning. The docter gave me hormones and I was on bedrest.

I never really stopped bleeding and after 5 days I had bad cramps, the next day I just knew it was over.

The doctor confirmed it, it was so devastating for me and my husband. Its been a few months and we were only trying now for two months so we are still waiting for our rainbow
