My first miscarriage was in July 2014. We had seen the heartbeat at 7+1 weeks then a couple of weeks later something just didn't feel right. I was 9+4 weeks when we went back in for another scan and I will never forget those words "we can't find the heartbeat". My world literally fell apart as I lay on the bed. Our little one's heart stopped beating at 8+1 weeks, literally a week after we had seen the heartbeat. My second miscarriage was in October 2014 and very early on and classed as a chemical pregnancy but the devastation felt was just as raw. We will never ever forget the two babies we lost and they are always in our thoughts xx
