I have had 8 miscarriages all lost at 12 weeks.

I do not blame myself, never have, never will.

The doctors couldn’t tell me why, probably due to genetics they said.

My first loss was nearly 30 years ago, back then it was a taboo subject, you never talked about miscarriage which resulted in total isolation and very low self esteem.

The up side is I have 2 wonderful lads born 10 years apart, and my way of dealing with all the losses is I believe all those babies are rolled into my two boys.
