As I briefly mentioned we have form when it comes to pregnancy.
Pregnancy No 1 – July 2008
This was how it all began. I had a fairly trouble free pregnancy felt a bit like I had a permanent hangover but given that I was mid 30s and had seen several friends who had miscarried and had bad pregnancies I remembered to feel very lucky, very grateful at how easily it had happened. At our 12 week scan it went very wrong and after a cvs we made the decision to terminate before our very poorly baby died.
Pregnancy No 2 – December 2008
It took me 2 weeks to get a positive pregnancy test, yet I knew I was pregnant. However I was worried from day 1 that something was wrong. At our 12 week scan there was no baby, only a small sac which meant we had to wait a week. In that week I miscarried, in the toilets at the station, nice!
Pregnancy no 3 – September 2009
This pregnancy had taken a while, we had relaxed I forgot my period was due, the wine tasted funny, we had lost the instructions to the test, did a cross mean yes or no? Obviously this was going to be 3rd time lucky, I felt sick and relished it as surely that meant all was well.. At our 12 week scan again there was a sac and no heart beat. This time I took the week between scans off, sat on a towel all week, worried about leaving the house and did the bugger shift? Obviously not so I had an ERPC, always a joy.
