I just found out something shocking about my Mum.. watch


    I'm the third (and last) child, my mum had a miscarriage inbetween me and my sister... I feel a little guilty tbh, I only got this shot at life because somebody else didn't make it. Makes you think, doesn't it. What could have been.

    One of my teachers had been trying for 15+ years for a baby, had like 6+ miscarriages (that I know of - I'm sure there were more). Had two rounds of IVF and last year finally have birth to the most beautiful baby girl. They love her to PIECES and I'm so happy for them ^^

    Miscarriages suck, they're so sad... Don't even know how I would cope if it was me. Women and their partners who get through them are so very strong.

    My mum's had 3...

    They will be a lot more common now because women are waiting until their late 30s and early 40s to have children
