Hey I started at a young age and had my first miscarriage at the age of 15 I was devastated.

I saw the heart beat at 6 weeks but I started to bleed at 10 weeks 5 days I went to hospital and found out that my baby had disappeared but my babies sac carried on growing until that day.

I was admitted to hospital that night.

There was no reason really why my baby didn't survive.

I was lucky enough to fall pregnant again and she survived but after the birth of my daughter my body wasn't right I found that I had pcos and me and my partner at the time tried to conceive again but never was successful we tried for two years.

Four years on I've met my new partner of eight months and we have conceived twice in that time but miscarried both times and it does knock you and it made me feel like I've done something wrong but I still have hope as I didn't think I would conceive again after my daughter but I can.

When the time is right I will not miscarry I will have a healthy baby...

Best medicine is to stay positive and have hope and faith xx
