Story of #miscourage by Anonymous

I had been trying for 3 yrs to become pregnant for me this was my first pregnancy I had always dreamed of it was all perfect, until the worst happened.

Pregnancy test after pregnancy test for 3 yrs in hopes i'd finally conceived and the very disturbing thing was that every negative caused me to be disappointed in myself because I was the only of all my friends who didn't have a child yet. July 7th 2016 I finally found out I was in fact pregnant, the amount of excitement I had was amazing. I was four weeks pregnant and it was awesome.

I was so hopeful so excited. At 7 weeks I started spotting and went straight to the e.r July 18th 2016 at 8 weeks I was told that I miscarried there was no baby.

I was thrown for a loop I remember playing the waiting game and just thinking their wrong there is no way I've lost this baby, I'm going to have the ultrasound and everything is going to be fine. I was wrong.

After I passed my natural miscarriage, I started to blame myself, I was so angry with myself, I felt so broken, hurt, and just down and out.

I reminded myself that there was a reason for everything and tried moving on but month after month passed and I still had not conceived again even when others who miscarried around the same time I had, had already had a beautiful rainbow baby. Here I am a year and 5 months later and still no luck.

I began to give up hope but then I realised I needed to be checked up on so my husband and I found a wonderful fertility specialist who is very concerned and who cares about our story.

Most of the time people shrug it off when you talk about miscarriage but must I say that no matter what you are still a Mum and don't lose faith for I've not completely lost all hope nor faith and I will continue to be strong for myself, and my husband.
