our son was born, stillborn.
he died on wednesday, october 15th, sometime between 8am when we heard his strong heart beating on the doppler, and 2pm when we could not find it. we went to the hospital to have an ultrasound, but he was gone. i was admitted to l&d, and we induced that evening.
on thursday, i labored, and gave birth to our son, anton harold, at 2:39pm. he weighed 2lbs 15oz, and was 16.5 inches long. he was perfect in every way. there is no definitive answer, but i feel in my heart, at this point, that it had something to do with the umbilical cord.
we are home, and in so much mental shock and pain. we have a daughter who died at 41wk5d, and now her brother, who died at 29wk5d. we did not think lightening could strike twice in the same place, but it did.
we are burying him on thursday. i don't know what else to say.
i have received so much support from you all here in the past 3 months. i thank you for all of your thoughts and even prayers now, as my husband and i need them more than ever before.
