18 Feb “We were told things weren’t looking good…”
Janine contacted us with the story of her miscarriage during Baby Loss Awareness Week…
“We had been trying for a baby for 6 months so when I finally got a positive pregnancy test we were over the moon.
I got to 9 weeks pregnant and went for an early scan we couldn’t wait to see our baby for the first time.
We were told, however, that things weren’t looking good- the baby had stopped growing at 6 weeks and they told me that I had a missed miscarriage.
I had to have medication to encourage the miscarriage as my body didn’t do it itself and it was the worst and most heartbreaking thing that I have ever been through, all of my pregnancy symptoms had gone and I just felt so empty and heartbroken.
We will never forget our Jellybean and I will always wonder what could have been.”
