We lost our little girl on Thursday 10/13/05. I was 33weeks,3days pg and I went to a "routine" appt that morning with my 4yr old to find that there was trouble finding her heartbeat and when it did appear it was very low (in the 50s). After another check by the doctor I was sent to the hospital to be monitored/ have an u/s and after a short time I was having an emergency C-section which I found terrifying. Carrie Louise was stillborn that morning, she did not cry, did not breathe outside of the womb but she is and was loved very much. She was a beautiful baby, 5lbs8oz, lots of hair, and looked like her sisters. The hospital staff was wonderful and I am blessed with the most wonderful, caring, loving friends ever. I am still healing all over and very very sad. At times I am fine and at times I wonder if I will ever be ok again. This is all so very new but it helps to get it down in words. I have been checking out the resources here and am grateful that MDC has this forum. I am so sad for all of our losses -- it hurts so badly <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

I'm so sorry for your loss, mama. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">s I know the grief you're experiencing and I know it hurts. It hurts bad, but you will get through it. I'm only 7 weeks past my loss (Reagan was just about 3 weeks older in gestation than Carrie) and I can tell you I'm in a bit different place than I was the day we lost her. Time really does heal. Gentle (((hugs))) to you and your family and I wish you all the best. Take care of yourself. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">s<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/candle.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Candle"> Carrie Louise <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/candle.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Candle"><br><br>
ETA: If/when you're ready, this forum is a great resource for those of us who are grieving a loss. All of the mamas here are wonderful and very supportive.

dziejen,<br>
i wanted to let you know you and your family are in my thoughts tonight.<br>
i hope you begin the healing process, both physically from your csection and emotionally. i know it deep inside me that our babies can feel us loving them, and you may find comfort the idea that your daughter knew the love that surrounded her. i am so sorry for what has happened. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> coralsmom

I am so sorry for the loss of your sweet daugther. I just lost my son on Sept 8th due to a cord prolapse during delivery. Nobody should ever go through this... but know that you are not alone <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">
