#misCOURAGE story, 16/05/2017, by Lydia
I fell pregnant last year after a year and a half trying, and actually found out on my Mother-in-Law's birthday, a month after she had lost her Husband...
It all seemed too good to be true in some aspects, but we embraced it and looked forward to "new beginnings".
Unfortunately at my 13 week scan, they advised me that I had a missed miscarriage at 7 weeks and had lost my darling baby.
My body had been a total let down and didn't give me signs, and following unsuccessful tablets and scans, I eventually had to have surgical removal a month later.
They also found I had a large fibroid, positioned in the most awkward place possible.... which may or may not be an issue with our plans...
This was just over a year ago now, and we remain as positive as we can that things will work out. We have been booked to go to the infertility clinic in June and hope that we may be given a new hope and push in the right direction.
