Hello everyone. This is a first for me - I've never shared any personal details on a forum. But at this intensely painful time, it seems like new firsts are a way of healing. On Apr 22, during a follow up ultrasound, we discovered our little daughter Elisabeth no longer had a heartbeat. She was our first pregnancy and it's still not sunk in that she is no longer growing inside me. What happened after the terrible news was a whirlwind - I was already at the hospital and my doctor's office was in the adjacent medical building. She explained how I would have to deliver Elisabeth and they admitted me into the delivery ward. 5.37am on Apr 23rd I delivered my little girl - she was so tiny but she was perfect. And I feel blessed that I was able to hold her and see her. My husband and I are grateful that we have our faith to cling to during these dark times. We know Elisabeth is with her Heavenly Father. We are peaceful that she is at rest - but my selfish heart still misses her and I just want to have her with us again. Thank you for giving me this avenue to share - my grief is still so fresh - we buried her just yesterday, but I am going stir crazy at my parents' place as I wait to physically recover.
