as some of you know, i was pregnant back in december...the day i went to have my pg confirmed, i ran into an old friend's lil sis there, she had just taken a test and was crying. she was 17, a senior in high school, she was no longer dating her boyfriend...she was scared about her parents' reaction. i sat and talked to her a bit and gave her a hug. i befriended her on myspace and kept up with her updates/pics etc. i ended up losing my baby in march. i recently saw that she had her baby so i went to her myspace to congratulate her, only to find that her baby lived for only 12 hours. i was so shocked. she carried this baby to full term, she was pregnant in her prom dress and graduation cap and gown....she made it all the way to the end and then lost the baby still. according to another mutual friend, the OB told her last month that the baby may not be born alive and if so she would not be expected to live long. she was born with club feet and webbed toes and some internal organ damage....i THINK due to trisonomy 18. but she was in denial about the dr's opinion and told everyone everything was fine. i can't even imagine how hard that must have been, to just pretend for that last month.....the funeral was wednesday and i didn't even know. i doubt i could have gone to it, it would just be too emotional for me to attend an infant's funeral right now. but i am just so sad for her.
