#misCOURAGE 22/08/17 by Anonymous 

I am a 33 years old who has been married for 7 years this year.

My husband and I have had so much heartbreak in the last 3 years in particular, however our first loss was 2012 with a missed miscarriage, but then feel pregnant with our rainbow baby who arrived safely in 2013 this was the best year. We always thought we would have two children, but still to date we are still struggling with our second.

I then had lots of issues with my back in 2015 so was on lots of pain killers everyday which then led to another miscarriage which I have put down to all the tablets I was on, I ended up having emergency surgery on the back. We thought it would be best to leave trying again for a year so that my body and back could recover.

We then fell pregnant again and had another loss in November which resulted in being a Molar pregnancy so I have to have the blood and urine tests sent to Charring Cross Hospital to make sure my levels had returned to normal the month after being given the all clear we fell pregnant again March 2017, this time I had a scan at 8 weeks and 10 weeks we heard the heartbeat both times, we got to our 12 weeks scan to find that the baby's heartbeat had stopped.

I am now currently waiting the results from the baby and also now have to wait again to have the all clear from Charring Cross Hospital.
