I had a miscarriage at 7 weeks. We were very much wanting our 3rd baby and when I found out a week before Christmas we were delighted. A week after New Year I started to feel strange. Went to bed and woke for the loo at 5am. That's when I saw the blood.
Total panic set in and I called the hospital who told me there was nothing they could do.
The bleeding continued for the next 30 hours until my miscarriage came to an end and I passed my baby. It was awful. The only thing that I could do was to flush my baby. That was it... over. It was the most heartbreaking thing to do. For weeks I felt empty. I got the "well you have 2 already" chat.
When I went back to work a few weeks later I felt strange. I found out I was pregnant again. I was delighted but terrified. I spent 9 months totally paranoid. I kept expecting to find blood when I went to the toilet. Id had 2 amazing pregnancies before and I just wanted this one over. Now I have another beautiful boy and no plans for any more.
