I lost my baby at 14 weeks

I lost my baby at 14 weeks. It was my first time with my boyfriend after being together for 3 months, and we used the condom but it split. I later found out and I wanted to keep the baby, but he wanted an abortion. It felt so good to be carrying it and started to buy clothes, at the same time I went through a hard time where no one believed me even when I had the scan.
Everyone believed the people who were spreading rumours and saying it was not true, including my parents, and they even started to tell my boyfriend that I was lying, but I guess everyone's got their way when I miscarried at 14 weeks 2 days after my scan. It was really painful and I am still not over it as it happened in September '09. I still cry over it and still have the clothes and look at the scan everyday. Still to this day the only person is my boyfriend, but we have been through so much and we are still together a year later.
