18 Sep Chloe’s story
I had my first baby, she was born healthy and we were over the moon. We then fell pregnant about a year later – that’s when I was told I had Chronic histiocytic Intervillositis (CHI), and our little boy was born sleeping at 25 weeks; there was nothing the doctors could do. We tried 6 months after that, and had a partial molar pregnancy at 6 weeks. We tried again after that and CHI kicked in and we lost our baby at 10 weeks. Our last try was with our baby girl, Sienna, we sadly lost her at 18 weeks.
I still feel unbelievably lost, but I know that one day I will get my rainbow baby. We are fortunate enough to have a child on earth with us; but that does not mean it hurts any less when you loose a baby. People often said “at least you have Mia” and it was like ‘Yes guys, I am thankful’, but there’s some parents out there that have no limit, yet I do and that’s what I find unfair. I went through the most amount of heartbreak loosing my babies; but I know they are all together up there – and I can see them in the night sky shining.
