I'm back...!
I did post here a while back, but we lost our baby at 15 weeks, so I needed to take some time out.

Well, I'm back again and just over 5 weeks pregnant. Long story cut short, I have a genetic disorder called a Balanced Translocation in my DNA. It's the reason we lost our baby last November, and there is a chance the same thing will happen this time. As we are 'high-risk', I am booked in for my first scan at just before 8 weeks, then providing there is a heartbeat, we'll be having a CVS Procedure at 12 weeks.

Then if baby is all good, I'll be able to have a normal pregnancy and birth from there on in!!

Looking forward to hanging out here again!
