November 2016

I became unexpectedly pregnant while I was taking my GCSE exams, my school, family and boyfriend's family quickly found out.

I went to the doctors a week later where it was confirmed I was 7 weeks pregnant and due on January 9th 2017.

However, the night after I started bleeding, I knew something was wrong and went to the doctors the next day she wasn't sure if I was experiencing a miscarriage.

At the time but was worried, I had an appointment later that week with the women's hospital where I had tears and an ultrasound, by this time I had miscarried and never got to see my baby on an ultrasound.

However, the test came back positive but my hcg was too low. I continued my GCSEs while miscarrying and passed them all.

My loss still hits me hard but I hope one day I will get my rainbow.
