Remember Emily Mueller? She’s the pregnant woman who decided to do a maternity photo shoot with about 20,000 bees. It was a unique shoot. The photo eventually ended up going viral. People couldn’t help but wonder where this idea came from.
Inside Edition interviewed Emily and she revealed that bees used to scare her. But once she gave them a chance, it was a fresh start in her life after dealing with two miscarriages. She told Inside Edition, “I wanted to find an outlet for that emotion. That’s where everything fell into place for me; when honeybees entered into my life.”
But as you remember, things ended pretty tragically, as Emily miscarried yet again. But now there are mournful updates on the smallest beekeeper in the family. On November 11th, 2017, Mueller posted on Facebook, “Jesus decided he needed his own beekeeper on Nov 11, 2017, and took our precious son, Emersyn Jacob, back up to Heaven with him.”
Mueller turned to social media to share the tragic story leading up to the moment the doctor told her, “Your baby has passed.” She started her story by taking readers back to a busy Thursday.
She was so busy taking care of her three children that she wasn’t even closely monitoring her baby inside her belly. She wasn’t monitoring kick counts and fetal movement.
But eventually, intense contractions that she’s never felt before were becoming quite noticeable. She was also feeling less movement in her stomach.
She wrote on Facebook, “Around 2:30 am, I woke up and was unsettled with the lack of elbows and knees I had been feeling.” Then, her and husband Ryan tried to find the baby’s heartbeat.
She continued writing, “We agreed if I didn’t begin to feel a definite kicking, we would go in the morning to the hospital.” She was told by the midwife’s office to come to the hospital’s maternity ward. And she did just that.
“I truly thought we would be sent home with a smile, telling us to just wait for the arrival of our sweet Emersyn, who was due in 6 days,” Mueller wrote. Her husband was by her side with their daughter. Their oldest was in school.
She continued writing, “I remember his presence, his walk, the way he grabbed the gel from the nurse’s hand, the ultrasound. Every detail of that moment is forever sketched into my mind and I cannot stop replaying it.”
Mueller finished the retelling of her experience on Facebook with a powerful verse. It read, “Just as you do not know the path of the wind and how bones are formed in the womb of the pregnant woman, so you do not know the activity of God who makes all things. Ecclesiastes 11:5.”
