I hope that it's alright that I posted an update from last week, when we had our u/s and found that our baby had passed away. We were suppose to be induced on Tuesday night, but I started cramping Monday night, so we went in Tuesday morning, and he was born just after midnight tonight. I'm already home from the hospital, his birth was one of the sweetest moments of my life. I thought that leaving the hospital without him would be the hardest thing Iíve ever done, but being home without our son is absolutely devastating. We will have a small burial service with just our immediate family next week. They couldn't tell us the sex at the u/s, so we didn't find out until the birth that we had a son. We named him Carter. He's beautiful.

Oh Sharon, I'm so sorry you're experiencing this. My heart aches for you right now. My name is Elsa and my first child Lucy was stillborn at 20 weeks due to a heart defect. The first few weeks after Lucy's death were the hardest for me...it gets less painful with time. I love the name you chose for your son.

I agree, Carter is a beautiful name. I agree, leaving the hospital...it was so hard.

Feel free to put your information on the Baby Memorial List in the pregnancy loss forum if you like, and I'll get you and Carter on there.
Thanks to babydoll213 for the siggy! My kids' blog Cora's blog

I like to think that my Eli and your Carter are partying it up up in heaven.
The first few months are the hardest (at least that it how it was for me) and then you start to have a good day here and there until eventually, most days are good with a bad one thrown in every once in a while. You learn to live with the pain and find a new normal. Hugs hon. Allow yourself to grieve and feel however you need to whenever you need to.

I am so sorry you are going through this and so sorry you didn't get to bring Carter home with you. Losing Matthew was the hardest thing I have ever gone through, and I thought I would never have a good day, but eventually I did. Please PM me if you need anything and we are all here for you.

Annalise is hoping to be a big sister on June 28, 2014. Forever missing her big brother, Matthew, stillborn on July 1, 2010.

I am so sorry for your loss.
Our son died during labour.
My experience was a bit different.
Because of how badly injured I was from the delivery I had to stay in the hospital for 4 or 5 days. We were able to spend more time then most with our son before we left the hospital.
We met with a social working from the hosptial and the one thing she said to me I will always remember:

You will cry alot after the loss of your son, once you feel like you cannot cry anymore you will cry again.

The loss of a child at any stage in their lives is devastating and one never completely recovers from this type of loss.
The days do get better and if you need to chat please do.
All the ladies are great here on this board.

Thank you so much for the awesome siggie Claire
Our joys will be greater
Our love will be deeper
Our lives will be fuller
Because we shared your moment

Carter is a beautiful name, and I'm glad you had a beautiful birth. I'm so sorry you are home without your special guy. I would like to think that my special guy is holding Carter's hand right now, teling him that it is okay to miss his mommy.

Thank you Vicki for my awesome siggy!!

I am so sorry for your loss, losing Colm was the worst thing that ever happened to me. All of it really just sucks.

I'm so sorry to hear this. I just lost my Reagan June 26, 2011 at 38.5 weeks. I know it's incredibly hard, and it does get a little easier with time. Easier to continue on with life at least. I know all of our babies are playing in heaven waiting for the day their mommies get to come be with them again. Just know he's looking down on you and he doesn't want you to hurt.
