Sorry to hear your loss. Remember what I said. Keep your family and friends close as you go through this loss. And also keep a memory book of her
So very sorry for your loss. In the online mother's group I'm a part of, one of our members lost her sweet baby boy July 4th 2014 from Trisomy 18. He was only 27 weeks and his mother learned about it weeks earlier. I feel for you, I really do :'(

I'm absolutely heartbroken to read your story. To carry a child for a week or even 9 months,  you build this undeniable love for the life growing inside you which no one can ever take away. As the previous post said,  keep your friends around you and make lasting memories to remind you of your baby girl and not the heartache that you feel. My thoughts and love go to you and everyone around you

My first had Trisomy 18...she was stillborn at 8 months. They told me everything was fine up until my very last ultrasound, which was a few days before she passed. It's a ****** situation to be in that's for sure.

I feel for you. My best friend's baby had Edwards syndrome which is Trisomy 18. It is a hard thing to cope with but you have to be there for the child no matter what. Her daughter was only here for a week but I went over every single day and I helped her through it. She found out when she knew she was having a girl and I was there through the whole pregnancy with her helping her cope with this you just have to have friends to be there and do a memory book of the moments that you spent together.

My heart breaks for you, I couldn't imagine your pain. I say love on her and pray to God that he heals her. God can do all things but fail, he is very able. He has the final say so. Remain strong and faithful.

I'm so sorry for your loss. You don't deserve this. You deserve a healthy baby girl that you will get to love and keep forever. Hold her tight, so tight you can't breathe. Never put her down. Let your love for her consume you, because if this is all the time you get you better make damn well make sure you make it count...make memories now. She needs you and you need her!

My mum was told my little sister wouldn't live past a few month old. She's now 17 healthy and full of cheek. I'm sure everything will work out for the best. And if it all goes bad I'm sure my son will help look after her with all the other angels xx

Omg I wanna cry. I'm so sorry honey. I can only imagine how u feel. My baby boy will b here on the 2nd and just imagining me loosing him god forbid messes me up emotionally. Its so sad because the love we get for our children before they're here is unexplainable. May god watch over u and your little angel honey. Its easier said then done for someone to say hang in there until its their situation. Just pray.
