My baby girl is dead, she was only 23 weeks old but still she was my child.  She was diagnosed with downs but still my beautiful little sophie, how do you go on.  I feel like an empty shell of nothing anymore, I am new to this whole forum thing but I am so sad and feel like so much is gone.

I'm so sorry for your loss. There is an amazing miscarriage and pregnancy loss group on CM that is amazing. They are so supportive and understanding, as they've all been through some kind of loss. I know they helped me through my miscarriages.

wow so premature birth.  Sorry for your loss.  I havent known too many babies to survive when born at 23 weeks gestation.   Hugs to you.  She is with the angels now.

I am so sorry for your loss. If you ever ever need or want to talk, you are more than welcome to message me. I have 3 amazing boys of my own (also have 3 step-children), but I also have 3 beautiful daughters in heaven. I carried all 3 to term (1 single, 1 twin pregnancy) and all 3 of them passed away shortly after they were born. My ex-husband was a carrier of a genetic x abnormality. All 3 girls had Turners Syndrome.

oh my Lord!  what was the cause?  i am so sorry.  you don't have to share anything more if you do not feel like it.  my dh had to turn off the ventilator for his son who was six.  i had a daughter who was changed at that much that i had to grieve the one i lost.  i wish that i had more encouragement for you.  this will definitely be the question i ask in heaven..."why children?"  it is so fresh and raw for you right now.  i don't even think any true grieving can begin for quite a while.  it is almost like your brain shuts down, just a little bit, because if you felt it all at one time, i don't think we would make it.  i kept thinking there was no grief left...and then there was.  i will pray for you and your family.  ds children are so awesome and so filled with love.  blessings for your little angel sophie.  may God blanket you with comfort and a peace that surpasses all understanding.  amen.
