I'm not remembering your story. Is there something specific that makes you feel like it's your fault?
I feel a lot of guilt, too. Mostly because I had a friend offer to take my shift at work so that I could go to the hospital the night she died (when I was still feeling movement, so I KNOW she was alive at that point) but I brushed it off and decided to wait until morning. And by morning she was dead.
It took me a while to realize, though, that it wasn't the fact that I didn't go to the hospital that killed her.
Being wrapped in her umbilical cord killed her.
I hope you can go easy on yourself. No matter what happened, you didn't want your baby to die.
Brittanie - I feel like it's all my fault because I had D&C's with most of my losses because I didn't think I was emotionally strong enough to handle going through the waiting for the natural m/c... I think it's because of that my cervix wasn't strong enough to hold him... if I had been stronger before, he would be here... It always crosses my mind too that if I had taken more notice of the signs that were there, but I just took as "normal" for pregnancy, they would have caught the IC in time
Thank you Katie (.:Shortcake:.) for my beautiful siggy!!
