My pregnancy was moving along without any hitches, I had reached the magic 12 week mark, was feeling really well and it was the week of Christmas celebrations.

My partner Darren and I had just bought a house when we found out we were pregnant, we were quite shocked as we hadn't been trying, but what better way to move into a brand new house knowing it was the start of our future together as a family. It was my first pregnancy and so I bought all the books and loved every minute of being pregnant.

My pregnancy started in a typical way, but I don't think I could ever have expected or been prepared for the journey we were about to experience. I had a positive test, morning (or all day) sickness, exhaustion and lots of excitement.

Our obstetrician explained to us they have done everything they can to prolong my pregnancy and if I go into labour before 24 weeks it is considered a non-viable pregnancy and they won’t intervene to save our babies. With doubt in her voice, our obstetrician said she hoped to see us in 1.5 weeks for our next appointment.

Seeing Raegan's micro-preemie body hooked up to machines and tubes and wires induced intense anxiety in me. It was a surreal moment that didn’t feel as though it belonged to me.
