I found out i was pregnant in october 2014. I was back and forth to hospital with bleeding and they couldn't find anything that was causing it. In January 2015 we went for our 12 week scan. It was then they told us they our baby could possibly have a chromosome defect and we would possibly have to decide whether to continue with the pregnancy or not. We were referred to the foetal medicine unit for more tests. The day of the tests came. We walked into the room for our scan and the doctor said those words I will never forget . Our little boy had gone at 14 weeks. My heart broke into a million pieces. A few weeks later we found out that he had a condition that affected his bladder called megacystis. We will never forget our little boy. Sleep tight my angel xx
