My baby boy was born this morning. Colm Cornelius was VBAC number 4, un-medicated although I did highly contemplate getting some type of drugs just so I couldn't feel , but not for the physical pain. I ended up not having them, mostly because by the time I decided it hurt too much to want to deal with it he was ready to be born. I am glad though because I didn't want to be out of it when he came.

He is a stillbirth baby. He had no heart beat yesterday when I went for my regular check-up. I thought for a few days, maybe even over a week that soemthing might be wrong, but with the placement of the placenta I tried to convince myself I just couldn't feel him. On Saturday though I knew. By then I was just in denial, and I figured I had my appt on Ties, so I would just see them then.

Anyway, I know it is hard to read about this stuff. There are no words I can think of to make my husband feel better, so I don't expect that you can think of any for me. I understand. I just wanted you guys to know why I might not be around, and why I have been kind of quiet for the past few days.
