I have had 6 miscarriages in the last 5 years...

The first time I fell pregnant was a shock but excitement also I can still remember doing the test the nerves the waiting and then u can't help itself u start planning in ur head is it a boy or a girl names you get carried away I suppose then just one evening at 6 weeks pregnant it was gone all over I was numb didn't feel real all I could think of was I need to get pregnant again and I did not long after scans everything perfect sickness was terrible through out but I didn't complain then at 19 weeks my beautiful little girl came in to this world so tiny so perfect but to soon...

It took me a long time to come to terms with it I wanted her back I was angry they didn't try to save her but I got through it and tried again and yes I was pregnant again because I had two losses I had early scans up and down every week then at 8 weeks I was told no heartbeat a d n c was arranged and my baby was gone...

I didn't want to give up so we tried again and I fell pregnant this time we had a ovarian cyst to deal with through out the pregnancy I had a operation at 14 weeks to remove the cyst all went well and baby was fine then at 17 weeks I started to get pains and my wee man came in to this world another angel....

So we said we needed to give ourselves and my body time then we tried again but we got to 8 weeks and our baby was gone again....

Then we decided it had to happen sometime I couldn't give up I fell pregnant and we were taking extra precautions we had loads scans etc but at 19 weeks my waters broke and my wee man held of to 22 weeks and was born a beautiful little angel to join my little family in heaven....

But I will never give up xxxx
