Hey all, I just wanted to come on here real quick and give you an update on what has been happening in my life this past week.

I went in for my regular OB appt last Tuesday and the dr said I was dialted a fingertip and he thought Raegan's foot was sitting at the opening of my cervix. They rushed me over to Riverside by ambulance and I dialated to 4cm on the ride. I was admitted to the hospital and put "upside down" to try and stop the labor and because they could see my bag of water bulging and they could see Raegan's umbilical cord. Long story short, it was decided I had to deliver at 25w5d. The surgery went well and both babies came out crying and did well that night. Raegan weighed 1lb9.3oz and Liam weighed 1lb15oz. Sadly, Raegan did not make it 24 hours and we had to say goodbye to her Of course, we are devestated but we have to be strong for Liam. He has been transfered to CHKD so hopefully things will go well from here on out.

It has been really hard for us because we can't seem to understand why all these things are happening to us and why it just happened out of the blue. We buried Raegan yesterday and it was the hardest thing I've ever had to do. I can't believe our little family is this messed up. I can't bear to go into the nursery because of all her things. We are so worried that something will happen to Liam and we have a long ways to go before he can come hom and even then there might be something wrong with him. We miss our little girl so bad and it seems like we will never be truly happy again

Dropping by just to give you It's so hard. Please stop by the stillbirth board if you need support (we've got some other ladies that lost one twin and shortly after birth)
