I'm only 17. This time last year I was in hospital having a miscarriage. My little girl was five months old, and I hadn't even known I was pregnant - the first I knew was terrible pains in my abdominal regions. Because I hadn't realized I was pregnant, I hadn't thought about my baby at all, and I was as if in shock in the hospital. I wish now I could have taken everything in more. My little girl would have been beautiful, and I will always love her to bits. I just wish I could have got to know her. I just wish I could have heard her say 'mummy'.
This site is really helping me, as I can't talk to my friends about this - they don't understand, and would think I was making a fuss about nothing if kept on. I think they have forgotten it happened.
I just want people to know how much I love my baby. I tell her all the time - I know she's up there somewhere - and we will meet again, but until then I have to live with my pain.
Melanie Ann Spraggs - Rest in Peace my darling.
