Please pray for us...(infant loss mentioned)

So last Tuesday, 3/6 around 4:40 p.m. I had what felt like my water husband was home and my mom was over visiting. After waiting a few minutes, I stood up and fluid was gushing out. We called 911 right away and then brought me to the hospital. They did an u/s and the babies looked OK at the moment but they brought me up to L&D and I was still leaking a lot of fluid this whole entire time, I was devastated and thought my water broke and that I'd lose them all in a matter of hours/days.

Well this leaking continued and after several ultrasounds the dr. determined that Baby A's amniotic sac had ruptured and she had barely any fluid left, and she was head down and very close to my cervix. We waited and prayed but at 1:56 a.m. on Friday morning 3/9 our little angel Aislyn Reese was born. She stayed with us for about 2 hours until she passed, and weighed 7 oz. and was 8 inches long, she looked exactly like her daddy. It has been devastating and heartbreaking to say the least...

Here we are almost a week after her birth and the rest of the babies are still hanging out but Baby B and Baby C appear to be ruptured as well. I am in bed for 24 hours a day, on tons of medication, vitamins, and antibiotics, and every day we pray that we get closer to them growing faster so that we can come out of this with at least 1 baby.

At this point, the dr. is thinking that I will eventually deliver Baby B and Baby C too, but Baby D has great fluid and looks perfectly fine. We are praying for a miracle and hoping for the best while expecting the worst. I will stay here for the next 3 months if that's what it takes.

So that's what's going on with us for now. The dr. said there's nothing I could have done but sometimes this just happens. I feel so helpless and think of my Aislyn every minute of every day.



DH (26) and I (25) have been married since May 15, 2009 and TTC baby #1 since

I haven't really been on the board much, but I just saw this and wanted to say how sorry I am. Praying for you and Baby D!
