August 2016

On the 30th of April I found out I was pregnant expecting my second child. I was over the moon.

Later on that night I started bleeding and it did not stop. I went to hospital the next day to be told there was nothing that I or they could do.

I felt like my whole world had been crushed at that moment and remember going home curling in a ball and crying. You know that your baby is not going to make it and I feel so useless.

A day and a half later I went to the toilet (I was still bleeding very bad at this point) to find a little tiny baby on the toilet roll.

I have never felt such pain, heartbreak in my life.

I caught on again just after losing the baby and now find it hard to cope with the loss and joy at the same time. I hurt for my baby I never knew and I also feel joy for my baby which I'm carrying now. I'm 19 and I never ever thought anything like that would ever happen. I still cry most days.

    My very special angel babies

    I didn't need ten days, I passed my baby the next day, I knew I was no longer pregnant, the second scan confirmed a blighted ovum, but to me that wasn't a blighted ovum, that was my baby.

    On that Monday I remember saying to the nurse, "I'm worried it might be ectopic." Her reply was that it probably wasn't. And that was that.

    I never knew there was such a thing as a missed miscarriage

    The best thing anyone said to us was that parenthood is a roller coaster, sometimes right from the start - I think it sums up our experience perfectly.
