My first pregnancy ended the week of my 12 week scan. I had a scan at 8 weeks and saw my beautiful little bean's heartbeat. I had some minor bleeding 4 weeks later and they made a scan appointment. However no one thought it was the worst outcome.

I went into the EPAC clinic and after a lot of silence was asked if they could do an internal examination. Then the words came out "I'm so sorry, there is no heartbeat". I broke. It took me a year to get pregnant and now it was all over. The next day I had surgery - my husband teaching me candy crush to stop me from crying! I remember after feeling so empty.

This all happened a year ago today (6/5/15). It still hurts. I had a missed miscarriage and it's rare to have it so late and especially after seeing a heartbeat. 

However, my little bean gave my body the much needed push to get pregnant with my beautiful baby girl, who is currently asleep on my lap! I will never forget you Bean. Thank you for my princess. I love you xx
