My story

[p]I am going to (attempt) to run the London marathon next April 2019 for The Ectopic Pregnancy Trust. [/p][p]In November 2014 I suffered an ectopic pregnancy- not realising quite what was going on I still went to work and carried on with my day although I was bleeding and in a lot of pain. After nearly passing out I went to the doctors to be told I was probably pregnant - I scoffed not believing him and begrudgingly took his test. It was positive, I had to go straight to hospital and have a scan- there was a live pregnancy in my right Fallopian tube. I was devastated beyond belief seeing that heartbeat and knowing it couldn’t continue, even though this was a pregnancy we desperately wanted. It was rupturing hence the pain and bleeding- I was rushed straight into surgery - Andy had dropped the twins home and didn’t even have time to get back before I went under. It took a long while after to realise how serious it was and if I didn’t have the surgery there and then I could of died. [/p][p]The worst part for me was the after math, knowing I was not as fertile as I was- that we might never have the 4th baby we wanted to complete our family. Even though we have 3 amazing children who I absolutely adore, once you are pregnant you desperately want that baby too. The mental side of dealing with it was so much harder than recovering from the surgery. [/p][p]In December 2015 we got pregnant with our little miracle Eddie. He has truly healed us, and we are so so grateful to have been lucky enough to have him. I am very aware that some families are not this lucky and need the support of this charity to deal with the realisation they will never have a baby after this type of pregnancy and the devastating emotional battle that continues. [/p][p]We are lucky beyond words with our 4 children, and I would like to support this charity to give something back. [/p][p]Anything you can do to help would be so gratefully received. [/p][p]Thankyou so much.[/p][p]lots of love Sarah xxx[/p][p][br][/p][p]Update 20/03/19[/p][p]So on Sunday I ran a lovely 18.5 mile run, on my own - it has really given me a boost as whilst it wasn't easy - I managed it in an impressive 3 hours and 17 minutes. I really am starting to believe now!![/p][p][br][/p]
