After 12 weeks 'so far so good' hubby and I skipped excitedly into the hospital to see our baby on screen only to be confronted with a shock. Our little one hadn't made it and we were devastated. Two days before Christmas I had to have a procedure in hospital to remove 'products of conception' as they called it. Christmas was pretty grim.

It took me two years until I was ready to try again.

This time at just 6 weeks I started to bleed and at the hospital it was confirmed I was miscarrying again. Again, it was Christmas time. To have it happen again after all it took to try again was heartbreaking but I was determined this time. Third time lucky and we have our little boy. But we always remember our two little angels especially at Christmas time. It's sort of comforting that they have each other.
