This forum over the past 3 years has helped me through some horrific times, I wanted to give back the hope others gave me in times of desperation.

In 2013 I gave birth to my wonderful daughter, in 2015 I got married to my wonderful husband and hoped to have a 2nd baby. Sadly that year was so distressing for me and my husband as we had 3 miscarriages one after another and the 3rd rendering me unconscious due to blood loss.

I was so confused as I'd had a daughter in 2013 no issues... anyway I had to wait until January 2016 to have tests to see if there was a reason behind my losses.

I tested positive for factor v leiden heterozygous a common blood clotting disorder that was known to cause problems for women who were pregnant. Approxiamately 1 in 50 women have this it's genetic and on one gene or two genes making it the most common but least severe.

I was so upset that I had something wrong with me I felt broken and sad inside. Would I ever have another child or was my one daughter my only miracle.

It took some time to get over this as the treatment for me if I were to conceive again would be injected blood thinners and daily aspirin, this scared me as I believed I could bleed to death if I miscarried again and I also worried how I would get through a birth if I was on blood thinners...

In 2018 I felt strong and brave and I went to my haemotologist and told him I want to try again I want to look back on my life and say I tried and I was brave...I was scared that something was going to happen to me, maybe a blood clot in my lungs or i would bleed to death. I was petrified. But I knew I wanted to have another go....

On January 15th 2019 I gave birth to my second baby girl, the emotion that filled my heart was overwhelming. I followed people on this forum they gave me strength and helped me through some of the darkest times and that is now what i hope to provide for others
