  • That's awful, I am sorry.

    But I suggest you seek guidence through a proper councellor rather than through a website.

  • Yes, my son died in my arms. It was and still is the most painful moment in my life. It has been over 6 years and I can still feel him in my arms. The first and last time I held my baby was when he was taking his last breath.

  • Yes. My second child was born 1/29/99 and died on 4/11/99. She had stopped breathing in her crib. My husband found her and we called 911. They took her to the children's hospital where they gave her steroids and put her on life support. They did a ct and found that her brain was dead. 3 days latter they turned off life support and I held her in my arms and sang to her until the drs told me she was gone. It was the hardest thing i have ever done.Pure hell. I went in and had 3 more children but the pain stays.It will get easier though. You never forget and I still shed tears from time to time but you will get through it. Did the nurses do hand prints and a lock of hair for you? im here if you need to talk to someone that has been there.

  • I read your post and it said that you were on birth control 3 years ago and you've been trying to have a baby for 3 years now and you still can't. You have 2 boys now. How can ask a question about trying to have a baby for 3 years and you just had one. mmmmmmmmm

  • Anon #2 what are you accusing of her of? Lying about losing a child?

  • Anon 11:02- You may notice that her TTC post was from 2007. To call her a liar when she is obviously in pain is very cold hearted and mean.

    OP- i am so sorry for your loss.
