1st Pregnancy - complications and D&C at 12 weeks
2nd Pregnancy - Little boy who at 17 days contracted Viral Meningitis & we very nearly lost him
3rd Pregnancy - In March 2009 I gave birth to my twins. Oscar was stillborn and is now my angel forever. Chloe his twin was also stillborn but the DR's revived her and after a month in SCBU she came home. She has Cerebral Palsy but I adore her.
4th Pregnancy - June/July 2010 Ectopic and verge of rupture as a result surgery and right tubes were removed - I was told the chances of conceiving were reduced.
My emotions are really quite raw at this time when it comes to children and the nature in which I feel I have been tested over and over.
5th Pregnancy - October 2010 - a shock but very happy. Early scan showed it was in the right place. 12 week Nuchal followed on Christmas eve and I finally got to see 'mouse' wriggling. Sonographer said that all looked good. Had bloods taken 7 waited for screening results. When I received a phone call from the screening centre panic set in and I now find myself with a 1:85 chance of this baby having 'Down Syndrome'. They have offered me a Amniocenticis.
I love all my children unreservedly but I am so confused and upset that I am being tested again - I really do not know what to do!!!
It all just feels SO hard when all I ever wanted was to be able to enjoy a seemless pregnancy and birth. Just once!
