I found out I was pregnant on Valentine's Day 2016, we had been trying to conceive properly for only a month so we were shocked it happened so quickly but couldn't be happier!

It took a while for it to sink in but I was in love with being pregnant, even though I didn't feel well (sickness, tired etc) I took it as a good sign that all was well.

Unfortunely at 10.5 weeks it was confirmed I'd had a missed miscarriage, I hadn't had all the usual signs of a miscarriage so it was diagnosed as missed.

While I was at the EPU i chose the take the natural route and let nature takes it course but sadly that didn't work and I had added complications of an infection and ended up in hospital as I was in absolute agony and lost so much blood.

It was the scariest most painful time of my life not only physically but emotionally coming to terms with loosing a baby we both loved already.

It will be my due date next week and I'm already dreading the day.

My best friend has been amazing and allowed me to talk freely which I've needed but a lot of people have avoided the subject or not spoken to me since and I think it's just them not knowing what to say.

This needs to change x
