On Friday May 6th at 4:32am, I delivered my daughter, Grace Marie. She was an absolutely beautiful little girl who had died a couple days prior due to what seems to be an umbilical cord wrapped around her neck. We found out about her death when we went in for an external version since she was breech. They couldn't find the heartbeat. I was induced and delivered her vaginally. We miss her so very much.

When you all have your babies and for those who already do, please hold them with extra love and give them extra hugs and kisses for me. They are a blessing and are fortunate to have parents like all of you.

Keri, I don't know what to say.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss of Grace. I have always read your posts with great interest because we both moved from the Nursing Mama's TTC in Sept. thread to the May due date club at about the same time. You and I shared the same due date. I'm crying as I write this. Again, I'm so sorry. Please know that Grace will never be forgotten.
