The first photo showed her and husband Austin Forsyth, 26, embracing each other as she lay in a bed at an ultrasound appointment, while the second photo was her “last bump photo” with Annabell.

“It’s been a year since we found out that we lost Annabell.
“I remember leaving our ultrasound appointment, sobbing and wondering how we were ever going to move forward, and so fearful of having to deliver her.”
