Back in 2014 I found out I was pregnant but I never had any signs of pregnancy. I thought maybe I am lucky enough just to not have any sickness.

By the time I had reached 12 weeks I went for my first scan to be told the baby had stopped growing around 4 weeks and I should prepare my self for a miscarriage.

I was heart broken.

After another week I woke up early hours of the morning with severe pain and then it happened. I was taken to hospital with low blood pressure and dehydration.

I still couldn't get to grips with what had happened and till this day I always thing was it something I did?

2 years down the line and I can't help myself to think how much my life would be different if the pregnancy reached full term and I had my baby.
