Bad news

I have been at the hospital since yesterday morning. I realized around 4am yesterday that I could not remember last time baby moved. I tried to spur movement and got nothing. I got my Doppler and heard nothing, so I came to the hospital. The ultrasound revealed no heartbeat, so I have been undergoing a slow induction due to my VBAC status. I am under the care of the best OB in the DFW area and everyone is being super great. I have had a lot of support from my friends as well.

Oh, my Denton mama. I'm so sorry. I woke up thinking about you this morning, sure it was your day.
May you feel the loving support from all your cyber friends, and be carried by your own inner strength, and the physical support of your boys and friends and family.
