I just wanted to tell everyone my story as I have been looking through everybody's comments and have found them quite helpful and If I can help or give anyone any advice then that would be nice. So i was 22+2 and on Mother's Day had a few pains in my stomach that seemed to subside after some boiled water so I thought it could be wind well I couldn't have been more wrong I started bleeding heavily and went straight to hospital. They told me that in cases of having a low placenta it's quite normal and I would have to stay until the bleeding stops but there were no signs of it stopping I went all through the night with pains no sleep then in the morning they came round to scan me and that was when they told me that my little boy had died as you can imagen we were devastated. What was even worse was i went through a 36 hour labour and had to give birth to him we called him Michael after he's dad. I had to have 6 blood transfusions 2 lots of plasma so as you can imagen I'm very lucky to be here and didn't realise how ill I was and lucky to still have my womb because if the bleed hadn't stopped they would of had to remove it. The only thing that kept me going was the amazing midwifes and family and my amazing partner. I have decided to not wait until my first period to try again as the only way I can move forward is to have another baby and I can see by all the comments that everyone feels the same way which is nice to know. its lovely to see lots of scan pics good luck to you all 😘 x
