The 25-year-old mom-to-be simply couldn’t wait to see her baby on screen. She knew exactly what to expect having cooed over her friend’s scan pictures and searched the #8weeks tag on Instagram. But while Emily felt prepared for her ultrasound, she could have never predicted what would happen next.

Emily later relayed the events of the day of her scan in a Facebook post. “My heart was beating out of my chest. This was exciting,” she wrote in January 2017. “This was a day my husband and I had been waiting for, for over a year.”

However, when the technician started the scan, hers looked nothing like the images she had researched online. Where there should have been a baby, there was simply a blank space. “I saw nothing because my body was just hours away from miscarrying,” Emily revealed in her heartbreaking post.
