Saying goodbye
Tue, 01-26-2010 - 8:09pm

At 18 weeks 5 days I delivered our baby boy. I had an infection in either my uterus or placenta that caused me to dilate. My membranes bulged and water broke. It was horribly traumatic. And not age related. Just very bad luck. I miss my boy so much.

It's my second, second trimester loss. The first was a suspected cord accident at 14ish weeks.

We plan to try again immediately, so perhaps, God willing, I'll be back.

Blessings to you all.

So sorry for the loss of your little boy. I can't imagine going through a 2T loss----mine have all been in the 1T (my 3rd---just last week).

I so hope that you can be back here soon after you heal physically, as well as emotionally. I hope I can too----I'm not getting any younger.

God bless you during this

Oh, Jeanne. I'm so, so sorry you're going through this. Thank you so much for posting to let us know. You and your family will remain in my thoughts. I look forward to seeing you posting with good news again in the very near future. I'm sending lots and lots of baby dust your way. If you're so inclined to stick around here until then, please, please do so; if not, I completely understand. Best wishes to you.

So, So sorry for your loss. I know personally how hard that is because it happened to me at 20 weeks. Delivered my baby boy so perfect, but too tiny to live. I hope you heal quickly, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I hope it is not a goodbye for long...

At 42, I'm new to the world of attempting childbirth and both the joy and sorrow it encompasses. I can only extend my deepest sympathies for your loss and wish you well in trying again, if you so choose. If those of us here can help in any way, please stick around.
