In the 6 weeks I was pregnant I drank, did drugs, inhaled second hand smoke, ate sushi, carried very heavy loads. I did everything that a pregnant woman shouldn't do. And I know it wasn't my fault and that I didn't realise. But I hurt my unborn child. I hurt it a lot. And now that it's gone I feel so so sorry for what I did.
My body is very much mine to abuse if I so wish. But I abused something pure and innocent. Something I can't believe I really do love. I maybe even killed it. And I'm never going to be able to live with myself for it.
So don't beat yourself up. You really can't cause a miscarriage. If you could do it just by having some sushi or lifting a heavy box then women wouldn't need abortion clinics in the numbers that they do.
