October 2016

I married my husband in June 2014. We decided to stop using protection and just see what happened.

So 8 months later we found out I was pregnant! It wasn't perfect timing as we were living with my father in law as we were renovating our house but we were over the moon & so excited.

Unfortunately the following day I was at work & I started bleeding. I went home called the doctors who arranged a early scan. It all happened the Thursday before Easter weekend so we had to wait until the Tuesday for the scan.

It was the hardest weekend we had our nieces birthday party & just had to pretend nothing was wrong.

At the scan the confirmed I had lost the baby. So on we went with life. I ploughed myself back in to work, which I now know was a mistake for me.

8 months later I was pregnant again!

I was getting ready for my best friends 30th birthday party & had friends coming to ours first. I went to the toilet & I started bleeding again. I went to the party feeling awful.

So again had a scan same result.

We decided to pay to see a private doctor to see if he could help us at all. He was brilliant, basically told us to relax and enjoy the festive season.

Well I think I got pregnant again that night only 2 weeks after the last miscarriage. So this time I had no bleeding & progressed with the pregnancy well. No cravings, sickness, stretch marks nothing.

My daughter decided she didn't want to hang about & came at 33 weeks 5 days at a tiny 4lb 8oz. She stayed in hospital for 12 days but is now a happy 13 week old little girl.
