A young Australian couple revealed their heartache after a nine-week miscarriage – and their desire to become parents again.
YouTuber Chloe Szepanowski, 20, and her friend Mitchell Orval, 23, are known online for their jokes and jokes, but two weeks ago they shared a very serious message about their pregnancy.
& # 39; Emotional day but Chloe did it like a soldier. No complications and time to move on and hopefully start our family in the near future, & Mitchell captured a photo of the couple at the hospital on July 17.
It was the first time that thousands of followers were told that Chloe was nine weeks pregnant, before she had a miscarriage and had a D&C procedure (a procedure to remove tissue from the womb).

& # 39; I have cherished half of myself and half of Mitch deep in my stomach for the past nine weeks, & # 39; Chloe confirmed in a later message.
& # 39; We went to the scan so excited to see our bub, just to hear that there was no fetal heartbeat. Nothing can prepare you for that. Our hearts are broken. & # 39;
Weeks later, Mitchell & # 39; s brother Dylan and girlfriend Krystell welcomed a child, Bowe Harvey, into the world.
Although it was exciting news for the Orval family, Chloe and Mitchell were more overjoyed than most at the prospect of meeting a newborn baby.

What does a D&C procedure entail?
A D&C, also known as dilatation and curettage, is a surgical procedure that is often performed after a miscarriage in the first trimester.
In a D&C, dilation refers to the opening of the cervix; Curettage refers to the removal of the contents of the womb. Curettage can be performed by scraping the uterine wall with a curette instrument or by a suction curettage (also called vacuum suction).
About 50 percent of women who have a miscarriage do not undergo a D&C procedure. Women can safely have a miscarriage themselves with few problems with pregnancies that end before 10 weeks.
& # 39; After our **** week there is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow & # 39 ;, Mitchell said in a recent video.
Footage shows the couple Bowe cradles for the first time, Chloe – who is still breastfeeding – changing his diaper and holding his hand.
& # 39; I am still bleeding from my other little bubba that is gone … but I am ready to become a mother, & # 39; said Chloe in a later series of video & # 39; s.
& # 39; Chloe showed her natural mother skills. She changed the baby twice, & Mitchell said.
& # 39; It's really inspiring because I really want to be a father again. & # 39;
It will take a few weeks for them to try again, but Mitchell hinted that very soon & # 39; a baby & # 39; wanted to make.

They recently confirmed that things were fast & # 39; average & # 39; and & # 39; as an old couple & # 39; started to feel, so they decided to create some space between them to go in the right direction.
To find out the cause of the problem, Chloe and Mitchell visited a relationship advisor who told them they have a different language of love and need time to work on themselves.
& # 39; Who said we should both live together? "If we grow apart, whatever, and if we get closer, it's even better," Chloe said.

& # 39; You don't have to live with these expectations that encourage you to get married and have children, all on a timeline. & # 39;
Initially, Chloe decided that they should leave because they are so young and did not have to step on each other's toes by being together.
Mitchell said he initially offended & # 39; but could not imagine a better result.
& # 39; It became a mutual decision. It feels fresh again. We missed the & # 39; honeymoon phase & # 39; because we immediately started living together, but now things are as good as ever, "he said.
Mitchell can spend up to three days away from Chloe and their two dogs before they are reunited, something the couple enjoy

& # 39; You don't have to meet everyone's expectations of what a relationship should be like, & # 39; said Mitchell.
Their online fans have strongly supported the change.
