i was so excited to discover that i was pregnant with my 2nd child. i researched all the do’s and don’ts, took the vitamins and fell in love with a beautiful person that i was yet to meet. Every thing was going fine and i felt good until one morning when i woke up and went to the toilet and there was blood. What was happening? i was 13 weeks pregnant and i’m in the safe zone now.

Well my partner took the day off work and we rushed to the hospital where i got blood tests and got sent for an ultrasound. The technician is giving me hope saying that baby looks good and then says that baby is measuring at 10 weeks and then says that he is sorry but the baby’s heart is not beating. MY BABY’S HEART IS NOT BEATING.

i feel numb and sick and i want to run and leave because this is obviously a mistake. It’s a blur of feelings and i say thankyou and start to leave as i hear him say i’m sorry. Back at the hospital my doctor is waiting with a nurse and explains that my baby has stopped growing at 10 weeks and my body is starting to shed it. YOU MEAN MY CHILD. i go through the motions as he talks about grief counselling and tells me not to blame myself because it was not my fault. NO I DON’T CARE BECAUSE I JUST WANT TO GO HOME AND SAY GOODBYE. The next day i saw my child and said hi and bye. My partner and i buried the baby and i have never seen my hubby look so sad. A few months later we got pregnant again and she is now a beautiful and happy child

  • I’m sorry for your loss, and I thank you for having the courage to talk about it.


  • I miscarried my s cond child at 12 weeks and I understand that moment of shock when you realise what’s happening. The only way to look at it is that “it was meant to be” and nature has a way of knowing if something is not right!! I have 3 healthy children and I am grateful for that and I just put my miscarriage down to nature.


  • thanks to all the ladies for your lovely words and support. miscarriage happens to so many but somehow we just internalise our feelings and move on when we should talk about it


  • So sorry to hear your sad news, it must of been such a hard day for you to go through, i have also had a miscarriage and not a day goes by when i dont think about what could of been.


  • Oh that must have been really tough, people don’t share their stories of miscarriage enough but so many people have experienced it, it’s always nice to hear a happy ending.


  • It is such a hard thing to go through some people go through it more then others but theres always that chance everything will be alright :)


  • I’m so sorry. This is so hard, and although it will get easier, you will most likely never “get over it”. You will always remember and love your lost baby.


  • You poor thing, i miscarried the first time i was pregnant but only a 7weeks that was hard enough let alone when it really is a little being. i went to a medium he said that my baby will be coming back to me still waiting we are not planning anymore babies anytime soon but you never know what god has in store maybe just wasn’t the right time. i wish you and your family the best xx
