I had my first miscarriage in March 2015 which was a missed miscarriage. I had a operation under local, but unfortunately they missed some of the cells, so in June 2015 I had a second operation under general. This was successful.

I spent months feeling unable to understand my own body and why I was having such mood swing. The smallest thing would be as if my world had ended.

The worst part about this is I had to deal with my feeling twice. The second miscarriage was a normal miscarriage where my body got rid of it, but it left me and my partner asking why us.

I found the second miscarriage easier to deal with because my body dealt with it and after my experience the first time it was just easier, but with both miscarriages I have had a roller coaster of a ride with feeling and emotions such as being jealous of pregnant mum's and people with small babies.

I still have days where I just don't understand why it was us.
