Hi Everyone.. As my post reads, I am traveling down this sad road again....
My story begins back in August of 2009.. I lost a baby boy,.he died in utero due to a condition in his stomach called Gastroschesis..This condition is where, (if the baby survives), the intestines are exposed,and the baby would have immediate surgery after birth to correct it. Unfortunately, my guy didn'r survive, I delivered him stillborn at almost 20 weeks. i can honestly say that that was THE worst experience of my life. I've never felt so heartbroken and grief stricken..
Thankfully, the dark clouds disappeared, and the sun returned this past January..I found out I was expecting again. We were so overjoyed--me, my husband and seven year old daughter..I was having a wonderful pregnancy, I had no complications, had a few ultrasounds and saw the doctor pretty frequently..I was even taken ot of the "high risk" category..
For unknown reasons, on May 31st, this past Memorial Day, I started contracting. I went to the hospital, and was 8cm dialated..I was rushed into an emergency c-section, and delivered a healthy, 1 lb, 12oz baby boy..He was 26 1/2 weeks gestational age (almost seven months).. Unfortunately, due to his prematurity, he only lived 12 hours in the NICU..
I've buried two baby boys how..I guess since some time has passed, I'm starting to heal from this heartbreak..I know it's been a few months since this has happened, I've just been too upset/distraught to write about it.
Anyway, thanks for listening to my story....
