When I was 17 I had my 1st miscarriage. I was 8 weeks pregnant and the thought of being a mum scared me but I was willing to embrace it.

I had another miscarriage at 24, it was mine and my husbands 1st baby together so as you can imagine we were thrilled.

Everything was going great until the 11 of august 2015.

We were going for our 12 week scan so we were looking forward to seeing the baby who we had called Maddy. We went for our scan to be told the baby's heart had stopped beating at 7 weeks 4 days.

In a week I had bleeding and cramping I'm sharing my story cause I'm not ashamed.
