So I'm about 8 weeks (first time and feel clueless!) and having my first midwife appointment in a week or so.
But I just found out that a friend of mine has lost her baby (I don't like using the word lost but don't know how else to put it). She was 23 weeks and said he had serious heart abnormalities. It's so sad.
I'm just wondering if anyone can tell me how that would be discovered. Would it have been through a scan? Would it have been a miscarriage?
I've read about the first trimester being most common to miscarry, and I realise it can happen anytime, but when it happens to someone you know it makes it all the more real.
I feel terrible because, I've got all these questions whizzing around my head which are totally too insensitive to ask but are now making me even more anxious!
