My name is Katie and I kost my baby girl Eliza Grace at 26 weeks July 29, 2008. I lost her after 13 weeks of bleeding and 8 weeks of leaking fluid. I was on bed rest for 8 weeks and was a few days short of going into the hospital for 8 weeks until they delivered her at 34 weeks. I woke up at 2:00 A.M. and discovered her umbilical cord had prolapsed. I called the hospital I was supposed to go to ans asked if I should go there or a closer hospital. They told me to hang up and dial 911 when the ambulance came I was told they wouldn't take me to my hospital because there was another one closer. After I reached the hospital I was told after the nurses and my doctor did an ultrasound that my daughter had no heartbeat and they induced labor. Since this was 3 something in the morning they had to call in an ultrasound tech who showed up after I was already induced. Quite a while after she did her ultrasound(that I turned my head away from) the nurses came in and shut my I.V. off and tipped my bed so my legs were higher than my head. My doctor came in and said that the ulrasound tech had seen my daughters heart beat and I would need to be transfered to a different hospital equiped to handle this situation(which is what I was trying to do when this all started) I said O.K. Now 6 hours after this started I was in another ambulance on my way to a hospital with a NICU. When I arrived I had an entire room of doctors and nurses waiting for me plus an O.R. on standby. They did another ultrasound and I was once again told my daughter had no heartbeat. I was hooked back up to an I.V. given an epidural and over 13 hours after I woke up I delivered my beautiful baby girl. I have wondered everyday if I could have done anything different and wonder why after all those weeks of complications why I couldn't have held on just a little longer and been safe in the hospital. I am lucky enough to have a 13 year old son to love and take care of which keeps me from breaking down 24 hours a day. I feel more sorry for him because he waited all this time to be a big brother and I feel bad for my husband because Eliza was his first child. I waited a long time to have another child and I hope to be blessed with another chance.
