In November 2012 I had an early miscarriage at 8 weeks. I had started bleeding whilst at work and my manager sent me straight to A&E. They arranged a scan and I saw my little tiny bean on a screen for the very first time...but the was no heartbeat. They arranged a scan for a week later in case it was too early to tell and a miscarriage was confirmed. I had no pain and no excessive bleeding.
I'm not one for openly talking about things that upset me so I joined an online group on baby centre.
That is where I met the most amazing group of ladies. I fell pregnant again shortly after my loss and me and the other ladies that were due within a few months formed a little group within the site, our rainbow babies came along and some of us have gone on to have a further baby since, we have all been there every single step of the way and will remain friends for life. Some of the ladies have met and become firm friends but It would be a amazing if we could all meet one day.
