One of the Ovi team has been brave enough to share her own painful experience of a recent miscarriage with us and we present it below.

* * * * * * * * *

I cannot express how pleased my husband and I were when we found out that I was pregnant earlier this year. This was made even more special by the fact that there was a very large possibility that I would not be able to conceive since I had had chemotherapy 5 years ago for bone cancer.

Unfortunately this happiness was not to last. One horrible day in June I started to bleed. My husband and I went to A & E where they scanned me and to our amazement we saw a tiny foetus with a strong heartbeat. I was told to go home and rest. Sadly 2 days later I totally miscarried our little angel.

I cannot put into words the pain and emotions that we both went through, I just felt totally useless that I could not do the most natural thing in the world.

The thing that I had not realised was how common miscarriages actually are. It is not until you are touched by it that you research and meet so many people in the same position as you.

Another thing that is strange is your total awareness of pregnant woman, it seems like everyone around you is either expecting or has a tiny newborn.

All of these emotions do get better with time though. I am a great believer in fate and what will be will be. I truly believe that there was something wrong with our baby and that, this time, it was not meant to be. I am also truly thankful for all the love and support that we both received from our friends and family.

I hope that I will be lucky enough to fall pregnant again and if I do, I have no doubt that it will be a very worrying as well as exciting time, I take great relief in the fact that the chances of a second miscarriage is greatly reduced, so here’s to the future.

That day will come soon, I'm sure of that. :) You sound like a very strong woman.

May God bless you both soon with little angel.
