Hello fellow parents. I hope you are all well. I'm new to this site and my family and I lost our precious baby girl Eliannah Elisabeth just two days ago at 18 1/2 weeks into my pregnancy. It's been a very hard few days dealing with this grief.
We are a God fearing Christian family and find hope and comfort in our sovereign Lords plans. His plans are better then my dreams. John 1:21. We will be burying our little girl in a week and find that is hard for people to comprehend the real grief of losing a child even if the child is not a full term baby.
I, like many mothers did everything right. We are a family that only eat organic foods. No processed foods, no fast food, no caffeine either. I took the best raw prenatal vitamins as well as a liquid vitamin that contains the essential ninety vitamins, minerals and amino acids that a growing baby would need to grow and develop. The Lord saw fit to take our daughter home regardless of our efforts. Like many situations doctors don't know what caused her death since everything up until that moment was perfect but think it may have been an infection. Eliannah had fluid in her chest and stomach but they don't know if it happened before or after she passed.
Eliannah would have been our third child. I have a little boy and a little girl and I praise God for my miracle babies...all three of them.
I'm prone to uti's although I had no symptoms during my pregnancy, I'm starting to wonder if that may have been the cause. I have accepted that we may not be able to get any answers but although I know my daughter is in the arms of our Lord I still have moments of deep sorrow and grief. My deepest condolences to all of you!
