Trying to conceive

Well I'm not sure what has made me post on this forum now as I haven't been on here for over a year but I think I just wanted to share how I am feeling. Last year in April on Friday 13th (of all days!) I suffered a miscarriage at 11 weeks preganant. It was my second pregnancy and up until the bleeding started everything had been fine, infact i'd taken it abit for granted.
After a scan at hospital confirmed that the pregnancy had only reached 5 weeks but my body had carried on growing I started to miscarry naturally. Unfortunately I was rushed to hospital and without going into details was very ill and lost an awful amount of blood, it took me around a month to recover physically.
I was fortuante enough to fall pregnant very quickly but was terrifed something was going to happen to me again and even panicked at 39 weeks. In the end I had a brilliant labour and have a beautiful baby girl.
You might wonder why I am telling you all this but I remember after miscarrying being in an awful state wondering why this had happened and why had I had to go through all of this. Tonight when I looked down at my baby I thought "I'd go through the miscariage ten times over just to have you'. She wouldn't be here if we hadn't had gone through the miscarriage.
I'm not trying to take the pain away from anyone and I know I was fortunate just to have one miscarriage and not recurrent but I just wanted to say that when you get your baby it will make you appreciate them even more then you ever thought you would because they are just that little bit more special.
I wish you all the best x
