I am heartbroken
This last 3 weeks have been awful. We discovered at our 12 week scan that our baby had a large amount of fluid on the back of the neck, a clear indicator of a problem. We were supposed to have the CVS test to confirm what the issue with but that was not able to go ahead due to difficulties accessing the placenta.
We had an advanced NIPT and the results came back for Edwards Syndrome. A life limiting condition where babies will most likely pass away in the womb, if they even make it to birth most will pass away before their first birthday and suffer inimaginably before that.
A further scan showed that the fluid had increased to 9mm and there was swelling around the baby.
We have now gone through the process of saying goodbye to our much wanted baby after a 2 and a half year journey to get to this place.
I don't know how to move on or forward. I know I need time to grieve but don't know how to do that either. Sometimes I think the grief has got stuck too.
I have read stories like this on here in the past and always felt such sympathy and sadness when I've seen them. For anyone who has been through this gosh it is the most heartbreaking situation one could go through.
I have always found this forum a great place of support and kindness which is why I am sharing my story.
