I am so so sorry that you have lost your little girl, my heart is crying for you right now. I lost my baby girl 3 months ago..she was stillborn a day before her due date. There are no words to express the pain and the grief you must be experiencing...I imagine you are moving between shock and numbess and immense physical and emotional pain (for me grief is not only emotional but a physical aching inside my body as well).
I too had a dream, about 3 weeks before my daughter died. I was in the hospital and had just had a c-section, but I didn't have my baby with me. I remember wondering where she was, and why only my mom and sister were with me. Three weeks later, there I was, in the hospital with my mom and sister, recovering from a c-section with no baby girl. This time though, it wasn't just a dream. The way I make sense of it is that, somehow, as mothers, we're connected to our children in such a powerful, intuitive way, that we get senses of things, especially when we know deep down that something's not right. I look at the dream too as a way of cushioning the blow, that maybe somebody was looking out for me and trying to prepare me for the inevitable. You must know though, that none of this was your fault! You did everything within your power to care for and protect your daughter, your love for her is so strong, and wherever she is now, she knows how much her mommy loves her!
I am still trying to make sense of this loss...I know it's much more raw for you and I will be sending you so much peace and love and light. I am so so sorry Jennifer.
