      Lane's Story

      I love hearing stories from inspiring women. From birth stories to infertility struggles to adoption stories, I leave each read feeling inspired and in awe of what women face and overcome. After reading a couple of stories and talking with my husband, I decided to share the story of our son Lane.

      There was no heartbeat. They called it a missed miscarriage because my body didn't recognise that there was something wrong.

      My angel babies ❤️

      5 weeks 6 days later I started bleeding heavily again with a lot of pain so I went to a&e who reluctantly sent me to the women’s for a scan the next day who said there was a 2-3 week sack in my womb and looked as if I were having another miscarriage.

      Secret miscarriage

      I went for a scan and i was 9 weeks 5 days. But they couldn't get all the measurements they needed. So I went for a scan at 14 weeks to be told the baby didn't have a heartbeat.
