October 2016

Last my first baby in august 2016 at 11 weeks.

Was at work on a Saturday and started spotting got gradually worse over the next few hours to the point on the Sunday morning I was filling a pad an hour.

Went to a and e who sent me to maternity they said everything was fine go home and rest but to put my mind at rest made me a scan appointment for the Wednesday.

Bleed on and off till then when I went for the scan was told baby was gone.

Was given to advise on this or even if I could or should try again.

Now I'm to scared to sleep with my partner incase this happens again
