At the beginning of this year I lost two babies to early miscarriage, both were heartbreaking even though I was only about 5 weeks along at the time. So when I finally fell pregnant and everything seemed ok I was stoked. I had been trying for another child for about a year and a half and of course was so excited. Everything was brilliant until I was 11 weeks and 4 days along and after me and my fiancé made love we noticed there was blood everywhere. Instantly I thought the worst.

I rushed to my doctors (they have their own pathology, nurse and ultrasound rooms) and spent and gruelling 2 hours drinking water and waiting for a scan on the hard bed in the nurses station crying on and off. I could tell the nurses all felt so bad for me. Finally I walked into the other room for my scan and climbe onto the bed. I was clenching and shaking I was so scared. But as soon as that device touched my stomache I watched my tiny baby kicking its tiny legs and moving around, I could see its little heartbeat and felt the most massive rush of relief. The doctor told me the baby was fine and couldn’t explain the bleeding. I’m not allowed to have sex again but truthfully i would be to scared to even try again. I’m still scared something will happen to my baby. But at least for know I know my baby is ok.
