The Anonymous Widower

Medical Advances

With all the fuss about the Duchess of Cambridge’s pregnancy, it makes me wonder if C had a similar problem in a third pregnancy soon after our second son was born.  She was feeling dreadful and was being sick every morning, which all made her feel she was pregnant.  She was and then had an early miscarriage.  She always put it down to the baby being female and that she couldn’t carry girls, but of course in the 1970s no-one knew any better.  She then went on to have our third son.

I suppose today, she might had that third baby earlier, as medical science has moved on so much.

In the 1960s and 1970s, you seemed to meet a lot more couples, where there had been strings of miscarriages. One American couple, where I worked with the husband, had given up trying to have a second child, as they couldn’t afford the care in the United States.  Then in England, the wife got pregnant again and by going into hospital for most of her pregnancy, she was able to have a healthy baby.
