I just want to encourage people not to give up after a misscarriage. I know everyones situation is different. I had my son back in 1992 and my daughter in 1994. My husband and i decided then to try for a third child in 1996. I fell pregnant quite easily, but I knew there was something wrong, it just did'nt feel right, i had no morning sickness and just did not feel like i was pregnant. I went to my GP and told him my concerns, he told me that every pregnancy was different and that i should just kick back and relax and enjoy it. I was 8 weeks into that pregnancy when my mother died suddenly of a heart attack. I went into shock and grief and my body reacted and i started spot bleeding. I went back to my GP and he did a test and told me i was still pregnant and to rest. The day i buried my mother was the day i lost my baby. I decided to then give myself a break, emotionally, mentally and physically. Two years after I suffered the double loss I found out I was pregnant again. I was petrified. At about 8 weeks I went to see another GP and told him about my history, he ordered an Ultrasound immediately. I was definately pregnant and with twins. The pregnancy went well, the delivery went well and now i have 8 year old twin daughters. I was thinking about how things worked out. I had suffered the double loss of my mother and my baby at the same time and i recieved 2 new souls in return. I feel very fortunate and i am glad that i did'nt give up. BIG HUGS to all of you.
