    I am so very sorry for your loss. I went through one miscarriage and can’t imagine how difficult this must be for you both.
    I have a friend that had multiple miscarriages and then had 4 children. Then she started having multiple miscarriages again and changed her diet to the ketogenic diet. Shortly after, she conceived and just gave birth to a healthy baby. Just thought I’d share. Wishing you only the best.

    Life is so cruel. Genuinely sad for you seeing this news this morning. Take care of each other and find strength in caring for your gorgeous little boy. He’ll get you through xx

    I am so so sorry that you are going through this, I would love to say I don’t know how it feels, unfortunately I do. We lost five, plus 2 ectopics and 1 molar pregnancy. My Gynae even told me it was time to give up as I was just 1 woman. The endless rounds of trying, of peeing on the stick. Buying white loo roll just so you could be sure of the slightest spotting. The legs in the air whilst on total bed rest so as not to lose your precious one. In the end I was sterilized and we got our little one through IVF, right up until he was born I didn’t think he would make it. I am sending you all our we love hope so much that your journey will have a positive outcome. Sending virtual hugs to you both xxx

  17. Kathryn Conroy

    I’m so sorry for you both. You’re in my thoughts. Life is absolute bollocks at times :-( xxxxx

    Heart breaking, we had one and that was hard enough. If she’s non-O blood, try aspirin during conception all the way to birth (after speaking to doc obvs) it worked for us after a lot of not getting pregnant and failed IVF. Good luck for the next one x

  19. Jen

    I lost number 6 end of January. I’m sorry, I know how much it hurts. I was on aspirin and was so hopeful. Look into nk cell testing. I’m normal for that too so next time I want to try progesterone. Good luck. You are not alone (thank you for helping me not feel so alone xx)

  20. Tracey @ mummyshire

    So sorry to hear this. I know words and stats don’t help as you are both people with feelings, not numbers. But don’t give up hope.

  21. Hannah Raynes

    So sorry to hear this. We have a three year old son and have had four misscarriages since having him. Eventually we got help privately, I had a high level of NK cells and after a course of progesterone & steroids we have managed to hold on to a baby I’m 25 weeks pregnant at the moment. Please don’t give up hope … X
