Hi everyone, I basically just wanted somewhere to talk outside of people who know me.
Sadly miscarried my first pregnancy in May at 10 weeks, babies heart stopped during the first scan one minute everything was fine the next the midwife noticed fluid all around baby which shouldn't be there and was basically saying it was going to miscarry when it's heart stopped. I was booked in for a D & C the day after as I knew I wouldn't be able to cope just waiting for it to happen naturally.
Although this was a horrible experience me and my fiancé were able to take some positives from this.. we were glad it had happened on screen rather than waiting around making the grief longer. Strange as it may seem.. it also felt like our baby waited until we saw it moving and alive before giving up the fight.
It still makes me sad but it doesn't hurt as much any more, it obviously wasn't the baby we were meant to have, because everything happens for a reason right?
So, Thursday last week (28th Aug) I took a test as I'd missed 2 periods, I've been used to missing one as they haven't been regular for about 2 years now. The test was positive! I was convinced I wasn't and I was just v late for my August period so it was a bit of a shock.
Only symptoms I have are tiredness, constipation and waking up starving hungry!
Should have a scan soon I'm just hoping it's second time lucky! After all new egg + new sperm = new pregnancy!
Sorry for the wall of text!
