Dealing with a stillbirth
'I am one of the ladies who also lost their child at 6 months...'
It was such a shock as i didn't expect this to happen to me. It was something unheard of in my family.
For a long time I could not understand how something like this could have happened. Two weeks ago I went to see another Dr and she took blood and sent it to the lab for analysis.
Imagine my shock when the test came back that I had rubella during my pregnancy and an under active thyroid problem.
When my Dr asked me a few questions I realised that I did have swollen painful fingers but we put it down as working too much with cold water and with the rush that I might be allergic to something.
Now everything comes down to me being ill. We are thinking of trying again but I'm so scared that something will happen again.
