Hey guys, Txgirl963 asked me to come and give you all an update.
After a long labor, her daughter was finally born this morning (11/20) but it is not the happy ending we all were expecting.
Her daughter was born with a head full of black, curly hair, 8 pounds, 5 ounces, and she was born sleeping.
I don't have all the details just yet but I've talked to her cousin a few times and I talked to txgirl963 tonight. She had a very long back labor and labored as long as she could at home with the midwives. I believe she transferred somewhere around dinner time last night to the hospital for pain relief. She and the baby were doing fine and the heart tones were good upon transfer. It's my understanding that once she arrived at the hospital ht's weren't detected and an US confirmed the baby had passed. She was started on Pit and the baby was born this morning. Txgirl said to let you all know the baby had the cord wrapped twice around her neck and the cord also appeared to be short. She went ahead and consented for an autopsy which may or may not provide more detail of what happened.
I'm so sorry to share this unhappy news. I'm not sure when or if txgirl will come back online to share her story. I know her family is rallying around her in support and I do know a photographer from NILMDTS came for photos.
Please join me in sending healing thoughts and prayers her way.
