This was my second pregnancy after an early miscarriage in November 2014 and I was so hopeful that this one would work out and was looking forward to my 12 week scan appointment.

I started spotting in the early afternoon but did not go to hospital until the next day as the spotting was light and I was hoping that it was nothing but after an 8 hour wait in the early pregnancy unit on the Sunday my bleeding got increasingly worse and I instinctively knew there was no hope even before we’d seen a doctor.

The following week was the most traumatic of my life as I lost not just the physical elements of my baby but the hopes and dreams that I had for my family and for the future.

This year I will find a special way to mark the date and hopefully be able to do some fundraising or volunteering once I’m emotionally recovered.
