On the 6th may 2018, at the very young age of 22 i found out i was expecting my first child. This did come as a shock to both myself and my partner. However we dealt with the situation the best we could. On the 29th may 2018 i went for an appointment with ny GP who subsequently confirmed my pregnancy and booked me in for a midwife appointment two weeks later. The two weeks elapsed and i went for the appointment with the midwife. I was then booked in for my first scan on the 20th june 2018. I was excited by this point and had already bought lots of things for my baby. I went to my first scan and i saw my baby for the first time. I saw the heartbeat. The sonographer told me I was ten weeks pregnant from the measurements however the pregnancy is progressing how it should at this stage and she had no concerns. I was then rebooked for another scan in two weeks time as they couldnt get a measurement for Nuchal Translucency due to how far along my pregnancy was and they can only do this from ten weeks onwards.
I then went back on the 12th july 2018 to be told the worst news possible that there was no heartbeat and the pregnancy is no longer viable. I was told that i had a missed miscarriage which is basically when you have no symptoms such a bleeding pain or cramping to let you know that something is wrong!!
This is the worst emotional pain i have ever had to endure. I wouldnt wish this on anyone. To be told ny baby is fine and to then be told i have lost my child i am absoloutely beside myself and cant stop crying.
I would like to do a memorial in my baby bears memory so that i have somewhere quiet and tranquil to be able to get through this difficult time and i am trying to raise a bit of money to do this.
If anyone needs confirmation that i have actually lost my child please feel free to message me i have all the information.
Please can you help us. no matter how big or small your donation may be. Everything will go to help create this memorial. And will be greatly appreciated. thankyou xxxxxx
