Hello Ladies ((hugs))

My name is Stephanie....Jennifer( rebecca's mommy knows me) I lost my first and only child at the time to Stillbirth, he was 37 weeks and weighed in 5lbs 140z 19inches..... He looked so much like Daddy but had some of my features in him, so the best of both worlds right..... When Noah was born there was no known cause as to why he passed, I did not get an autposy done because I did not want them to touch him, not after what i had been through with that hospital anyway.... The only thing my Dr could see was the my placenta aged faster than it was supposed to, it was very small, grey in color, not very meaty and spongy like it should have been.. They explained it to me like this... That it's like a battery in a clock... you put the batteries in and all is well, then slowly the battery starts to die down and slowly the clock ticks until it just stops, thats what my placenta did.. they call it placental aging..... My son was so perfect, nothing was wrong with him.... then when i went on to have Noah's little brother they said I was high risk and did every testing on me at this point.... I was in and out of the hospital with Noah with pre term labor, my body and Noah knew it was time to come out, but the Dr's failed to see that my placenta was dying and that Noah was telling them, they just said I was eager to have my child and that all will be well **tears** anyway they ran tests on me with Noah's little brother and at this time I was seeing a new dr and he was wonderful, gosh was he... anyway he said all tests came back great except for the parvo virus one.. I said wait that runs in animals (mind you never heard of it in humans) he said no this is a human parvo, also known as the fifth disease and slap cheek..... I started to cry like what in the hack.. he said my percentages with Noah's little brother are low and that he is for certain I had it with Noah... I cried harder... I asked how do you get this and he said it's air born, can walk by someone who has it and they sneeze and there you go, well at the time I was working at a daycare and that is where I picked it up from.... anway I asked if that is what took Noah from me, he said "yes it very well could have" The parvo virus is dangerous in unborn babies, not to tolddlers or infant or adults, but unborn children as it causes anemia etc... I started to put 2 and 2 together and I was very anemic with Noah that they told me to take 2 iron pills everyday and eat lots of red meat..... Parvo can also affect the placenta and babies heart rate, it's then that I knew that is what took Noah... I can not be certain because tests were not run on him, but I'm telling you in my heart I feel it was that but I just say unknown because who really knows, maybe The original Noah was to old to do his job and he needed a new Noah to take his place and he had to pick that very special one, and he did, my Noah Allen....

I would like to welcome you all here, and please if you would like to meet Noah and rwad more, you may visit his website at www.thegraybabies.com

"O" sweetie thank you so much for the warm welcome....... I'm so very sorry for your loss, I can not even begin to tell you just how my heart is breaking as you know it all to well..... You know after I lost Noah I got pregnant with his little brother, here is the link to his website... go to his story page and it will tell a little of how I felt that day I found out I was pregnant with his little brother.... I have read his sotry a million times and it seems as if each time I read it, there is small details I left out, one day I will have to sit and go through it all over again just to make sure I get all detail in there, but for now it's ok as it tells the most important part anyway www.thegraybabies.com

It's always sad to welcome someone new here. I hate that this had to happen to any of us.

I'm Brittanie. I lost my Cora at 38 weeks to a cord accident (May 2, 2006). I've since had a healthy baby girl, Erin, who is almost 6 months old.

Anyway, I just wanted to welcome you here.

Noah is just beautiful. I am so very sorry for your loss. I hate popping in here to see new faces and read new tragic stories. I'm Lynne and I lost Macy at 17 weeks due to an amniotic infection. She was born perfect in every way and I miss her each and every day. The holidays are hard. I pray you are coping and I am glad you found JM. There are so many loving wonderful women here. I also have two beautiful little ones, Owen is 3 and a half and Jordan is 7 months. Welcome.
