Baby George was stillborn on 12/29/11 at 7:44 a.m. He weighed 4 pounds 13 ounces and measured 18 inches. His cause of death is unknown. My midwife was unable to find his heartbeat at our 36 week appointment and we took an emergency trip to the hospital for an ultrasound. The ultrasound confirmed her findings.

 

We had a blessing ceremony at the hospital to say hello and goodbye, and will have a memorial service later.

 

My DH and I are doing as well as expected.

 

Thank you, ladies, for all of your life an support during the last 9 months.

 

Love, Kay

So much love to you, Kay.  Please be gentle with yourself.  And please feel free to share more of George with us, if you're comfortable.
