We have been trying to have a baby since 2007. No issues getting pregnant but staying pregnant has always been the problem. Years of tests and no problems found just told we are unlucky and to just keep trying. I have lost pregnancies at varying stages from as early as 5 weeks just days after getting a positive result on a stick to 17 weeks and 6 days which as you can was very traumatic and took a lot of mental strength and courage to get through. This time round is my 10th pregnancy and I still have no living children. I am now 16 weeks and 2 days pregnant so getting close to the furthest I have ever been pregnant-wise. On Monday I had a procedure called a cervical clercage which has been given to me as a preventative measure to try and keep baby cooking for as long as possible. It was established that I was funnelling and without a stitch I may go in to preterm labour. I had only just started a new job so am not entitled to much regarding sick pay. In my current situation I am only able to take a week off work without it causing a financial strain. In an ideal world I should be on moderate to strict bed rest but I still have to live and pay my bills. I am asking for donations of whatever you can afford to allow me to take a bit more time off work and maybe even put me in a position where I can drop my days to part time in order to take it as easy as I can in the run up to getting to 24 weeks which in the UK is classed as 'viability'. I am not shy of work and have always paid my way and I have never asked anyone for any financal help until today where I have found the courage to say I do need a little help with the reward at the end of it being a perfect rainbow baby we have nicknamed 'tiger' and have waited 11 years for. Thanks for reading my story and if you can help my cause I would be forever grateful to you x
