One of my best friends in real life is Jen. Her daughter Savannah Rose Miller was born still at 40 weeks on May 13, 2005 at 4:52 AM. She weighed well over 7 pounds and had Jen's strawberry blond hair.

When she was 40 weeks, Jen had gone to the midwives' and had an ultrasound. Everything seemed all right. They only showed her the head (she was uninsured and never was able to get extra testing, etc. during the pregnancy). One day later Jen naturally went into labor. In the early stages a blood clot got into Savannah's umbilical cord, causing her death. At first Jen didn't notice she wasn't really that active because Jen was focusing on her contractions and stuff.

She labored for three days. As long as it took her body, since Savannah was already gone, she was going to labor and give birth vaginally. So on May 13 she was born.

Jen doesn't have any living children. In 1999 she had a very tiny stillborn baby at 18 weeks but she doesn't know that child's gender. Months after Savannah was born Jen found out she has a rare blood-clotting disorder that caused her losses. So if she gets pregnant again there is alot they can do for her and she has wonderful chances.

She doesn't have a computer of her own, but I know Jen uses her friend's computer to check her MySpace and stuff. I just hope you all can keep her and Savannah in your prayers this week. I got her a Precious Moments figurine of a girl holding a doll with a number 4 beside it, for Savannah's 4th birthday.
