Hello everyone. I'm Bonnie and my husband Bill and I were married March 22, 2008. On May 21 we discovered we were pregnant! But on May 25 I miscarried at 4 weeks 4 days pregnant. Then on June 26 we found out we were expecting again!!!! We had an ultrasound on July 31 at 9 weeks 3 days pregnant and everything seemed fine. On September 15 I began vomiting everyday but everyone (including the doctors) told me it was just morning sickness and that it comes at different points in pregnancy for different women and I can accept that, even after our loss. On October 23 we had the big ultrasound! We found out our child was a boy and he was so cute and active during the appointment! On October 29 I received a call that said we should come in for another ultrasound o nNovember 19 as our son was measuring just a little bit smaller than he should be based on my Oct. 23 ultrasound which was at 21 weeks 3 days pregnant.

On November 13 I went for a regular visit, but no heartbeat with the doppler. I had an emergency ultrasound which confirmed he had passed away. We went into the hospital that night and at 7 AM on November 14 I was induced. At 11 AM they gave me another dose and labor pains started very soon after that. By 3 I was in alot of pain, by 6 extreme pain, by 8 it was excruciating. At 9 I was given an epidural (during which I passed out and vomited alot) and then we were left alone to relax. After midnight on November 15 I began feeling pain in my arm and back, then at 12:27 AM my water broke and I woke Bill and beeped my nurse. At 12:29 my son came down and I pushed to deliver him alone with my husband at 12:30. Then the doctor and nurse came (they had been in an emergency C-section). I was 24 weeks 5 days when we delivered.

They said his umbilical cord was thin and rather flimsy where it met his body, so they think my vomiting was more severe than usual and that that it was caused this. The doctor said the cord must have gotten twisted and tapered off the blood vessels and that by the time it came untwisted, it was too late for Roald.He said next time we will be watched closely (especially any vomiting), but otherwise he said nothing has come back giving any hint that there is anything "wrong" with me or our lost son. He weighed 1 pound 0 ounces and was 11" long.

I've been lurking on the internet ever since it happened and this is the first board I joined, as I liked what I saw and read. Thanks for having me!

Bonnie

Hi
My name is Liz Bevan. My husband and I recently lost our son Malachi William Bevan.
He was born silently on December 8, 2008 at 11:06 PM. The doctors are not sure what went wrong.
I am hoping that I can connect with some mothers, as I am finding things very difficult.

Hello... my name is Adriana but everyone calls me Adri... my fiance and I lost our angel girl Sophia Alexis on March 27th, 2008 just a week before she was scheduled to be delivered... this year has been very difficult for me because I was just so ready to be a Mom and she was my first... we had an expert to review my medical records and they determined that things could have been done differently in regards to my care that would have saved her... so that on top of everything else just makes this that much more diffucult for me. My friend who had a miscarriage early in her pregnancy suggested talking to other Moms of Angels so here I am... sorry that we all had to meet under such sad circumstances! I will post our Angels picture in the picture thread... anyway, I cant wait to heal with all of you!

<3Adri*

hi my name is danielle i lost my baby from stillbirth nearly 10 years ago [this august] i still have my moments were im having a bad day and i have my good days, i never have met or talked to anyone who has lost a baby before. so now i dont think im that crazy thinking should these emotions should be there or not do i make sense. anyway i had my son at home didnt know he was gone so to speak i was 18 at the time i was 31 weeks nearly 32 weeks. i think i knew he was gone but didnt own up to it im so glad that we spent the time with him. now i have 3 other children they know about there little brother we often talk about him. i keep all hes belongings in a box and the first time i didnt cry i felt guilty not crying. now when i look in hes box i feel happy and conected to him. we have a birthday cake on the aneversary of hes passing and we all sing happy birthday, [we named him kirtis.] he was our first born. its realy hard talking to my partner about it so i supose this is my way of talking about him. ow and yes im a newbie to.

Hi, my name is Rebecca. My son Ethan was born still just one week ago today at 18 weeks gestation. He had anhydraminos (no amniotic fluid) and something wrong with his placenta, we don't yet know exactly what. I just don't know how to go on without him. Today was my first day back at work in 10 weeks (I had severe morning sickness) and I could barely function. I know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, I just don't know if I can make it through the tunnel to the other side. Hopefully you all will have some wisdom for me.

Hi,
My name is Dee and I gave birth to my sleeping son Fri 13 Feb 09 he was 22 weeks and 4 days. His name is Anthony Keith Max. I thought I would be ok. I tried so hard to cope the first week but now I just seem to have stopped caring about coping and moving forward and all that sort of stuff that made sense last week now I just don't seem to care. All I can think is that my baby is no more.

Hi ladies, I'm Alex, my husband and I have have 5 earthly children and one on the way, and two heavenly children. In February of 2004 I miscarried at 8-9 weeks; and on January 3, 2005, I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy, Mason Charles, born sleeping at 33 weeks. It's been 4 years, 2 months, and 1 week since our baby went to heaven. I've since given birth to a healthy baby girl (now 2), and healthy identical twin girls (now 1), and I am due in July with another little girl. We also have a 5 year old son and a 9 year old daughter, who we adopted last April.

Hi, my name is Christina. Three years ago, I went in for my 20 week ultrasound and discovered my beautiful baby girl had been taken to heaven. Twenty-four hours later, January 25, 2006, I gave birth to June Elizabeth. She passed due to a tumor. My husband and I were crushed. Since then I've been through tons of counseling, but I am pleased to have discovered this forum. This has been the hardest thing I've ever dealt with in my life and it seems the more time passes the more everyone around me has forgotten the pain I deal with on a daily basis. The insensitivity is so very hard and I feel like there is noone around me who understands. I'm glad to know there is a place I can finally go to express my feelings without receiving the ackward stares or the insensitive remarks.

Hello my name is Elieth. Our baby was born still March 9, 2009. We named him Santiago Morgan he was 32 weeks old. Tomorrow will be a month since he grew wings and it feels more like an eternity. His daddy, mommy and big brother (5yrs old) miss him greatly and love him very much.

Hello, my name is Kathryn. Our son Joseph Allan (but we called him Joey) was born sleeping on 4.4.09. I think the last time I felt him kick was the afternoon of his due date, then that evening had some contractions and when they stopped I went to bed. The next morning I could not get him to move and ultrasound at the doctor's office confirmed his heart wasn't beating. Joey had an omphalocele, where his abdominal wall didn't form properly, but had been growing and developing beautifully. We declined autopsy but the doctors think the omphalocele was fine, that it was the umbilical cord wrapped too tightly around his neck.

That had been our regularly scheduled 40wk appt and though I had turned down induction at 39wks, we were planning on inducing after my 40wk appt. So we left for the office thinking we'd be home Sunday with our son which made it all more devastating. I am so proud of his birth story though....I was induced 4.3 but didn't feel any contractions until after my water was broken 4.4 at 5am. Then it was only 4hours until his birth. When it was time to push he came so fast the doctor and nurse almost missed it, my husband had to run into the hall to get someone. All the commotion was good though, if they had been there waiting the silence of his birth would have been too tough to handle. We kept Joey with us for 6hrs after his birth. What I wouldn't give to hold him just one more time.

Joey has a big brother Jamie, who is 4.5. Jamie was so angry that his little brother had died, but he got to hold him and we talk about him all the time. They were very connected during my pregnancy and I am so thankful that Jamie has these memories. Jamie actually named Joey!

We are all doing okay, my husband went back to work this week. I'm a teacher and I'm going to stay out for the rest of the school year.

Hi. My name is Jenny. We lost our son Joseph on June 8 2007. It doesn't seem to get easier. My bestfriend is pregnant and due any day and another friend gave birth last night. I try to be strong but it just makes me angry that my son is not here. Where he belongs.
