I am new to this forum. My mother-in-law just lost her baby. She was at 34 weeks. She went in on thursday for a checkup and the doctor told her that he heard a faint heartbeat. Told her to come back in on Friday for ultrasound. Friday she went in and the baby was already gone. She then was admitted to the hospital and they did not induce her until Saturday afternoon. She was in labor and delivery and heard all of those babies crying until the day she got out (Sunday) Saturday she gave birth to Angel Adolfo. He was born asleep weighing in at 6lbs. 11oz and 19.5 in long. It was so hard for me to go there cause I am ten weeks pregnant right now. I just cried and cried at home. I sent my husband for his mom and told him to tell her that I loved her and was thinking about her. I feel so bad right now. I wish there was more I could do for her.

Hello there and welcome to the board x x

First of all I am so sorry for the loss that you and your family are facing. I can't imagine how much pain your mother in law must be in right now or how hard this is on you being pregnant yourself. My thoughts are with you all at this terrible and sorrowful time x x

I am sure that the hardest part must be not to know what to do to help her. I think the best thing you can do is to be there for her when she needs you, to listen to her when she needs to talk and to let he know that you'll always be there.

There is a very good still birth board here on JM that you might like to ask for some advice about how you can best help your mother in law, and always feel free to come and talk, cry or vent your own grief and fears here honey.

I'm thinking of you x x

~ Thank you Patty for my awesome siggy! ~
