Ms Rumble, who has about 400,000 Instagram followers, began documenting her health journey and said she has found support among other women with similar experiences. 

She had suffered the miscarriages over three years from 2016 but in January 2019 Ms Rumble had a heterotopic pregnancy. 

The condition is rare and involves a dual pregnancy with one pregnancies being ectopic – or in an abnormal place. 

‘I kept going to the hospital once we found out we were pregnant because I had this sharp, left-hand side pain and (the doctors) kept dismissing me saying they don’t know… it’s nothing,’ Rumble said. ‘

There was something in my gut that just kept on saying, ‘No, there’s something actually wrong with you’,’ she said. 

Then, four weeks later, internal bleeding was discovered in Ms Rumble’s stomach and she was rushed to hospital for life-saving surgery. 

She was left with chronic pain that doctors again dismissed – this time as being adhesion pain from the operation. 

However, after 18 months the pain had not improved and was accompanied by extreme swelling in her abdomen. 

After another surgery, doctors made the shock discovery of endometriosis everywhere, Ms Rumble said, including on her bowel, uterus, and ovaries. 

The painful condition is something Ms Rumble has learned to live with. 

She said she found comfort in the ‘huge community’ of other women out there who also have the condition in which tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside the uterine wall.   

She encouraged other women who may be in the same position to talk to others whether that be friends, family or even strangers with the condition.
