Thank you everyone, all the love is so warming right now.

I came home last night, physically I'm doing well, the birth was wonderful considering the circumstances, we let her drop to crowing without any pushing to help avoid worsening my uterine prolapse as much as possible, I touched her head and held her the entire way out and while I had an epidural given during transition I could completely feel her exit and it is a precious memory.

She was beautiful, perfect, nothing wrong that the eyes could see. We'll be doing testing to see if they might find out what happened, really the biggest reason is so we might be able to know information for future children.

A professional photographer came and did lots of photos, we kept her with us in our room until we checked out last night, I had a wonderful hour long nap with her in my arms and Dh wrapped around me that I will cherish forever.

At some point I'll share some photos, thank you all for the love for my family. Little Fiona Star is now the littliest angel in heaven and it comforts me greatly to know she's safe and loved with God/dess and Jesus.

Lisa, mama to Orion (7) , Fiona Star (born sleeping @ 38wks 12/6/08) , our bitty (m/c 7/27/09) , and Charlotte Athena (11/5/10)

I am so sorry.

I was struck by your username and your choice for Fiona's middle name. At the funeral for my son after he died in my second trimester, one of my Mayan friends said that babies who die before they are born become one of the stars. We had a plaque made with his name and this quotation from the Little Prince:

"In one of the stars, I shall be living
In one of them, I shall be laughing
And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing
when you look at the sky at night."

I wish you peace and healing.

Thank you for sharing. There are no words to ease the loss of a child. Take it one moment at a time and know there are NO time tables on grief. Here's to seeing our beautiful babies again.
