    Guilt

    I lost my baby girl at 40weeks. At my 40 weeks appointment she was fine. Three days later I called the OB because I hadn't felt her move all day. They had me come in and there was no heartbeat. I was taken to the hospital and induced. After giving birth they found the cord wrapped around her neck very tight. This is what killed my baby.I feel it's all my falt she is dead. I think about it almost...

    Carson's Gifts - 5th Angelversary

    1
    I haven't been on here for a couple years now and even when I came onto this site I never posted much, but the posts I read helped me through my journey. This year as my Carson's 5th angelvesary arrives, I decided I wanted to give something back to the community that helped me through the first rough months after losing my son. I wrote and published Carson's story a year after we lost him due to...

    Is it wrong?

    Im new to this so bare with me. So I was blessed with a beautiful baby girl on March 3rd. My due date was supposed to be the 12th of march. I went to my weekely check up appt just to find out they couldn't find heart beat. The doctor came to the conclusion that she passed that night. I was devastated. So they induced me and I was in labor for a day and a half. There was nothing they could do to...

    Late stage Placental Insufficiency

    I was wondering if any of you have dealt with a diagnosis of late stage placental insufficiency regarding your sweet angel babies (or even placental insufficiency for that matter). I have gotten two separate opinions from my daughter's autopsy and both agree that my placenta stopped slowly providing enough oxygen/nutrients at approximately two weeks before her delivery date (she was born sleeping...

    How can I move on?

    6
    I have been reading these stories for weeks and now I feel like I need to share mine. On May 28th 2016 I took a pregnancy test and it was positive. My boyfriend and I weren't trying to get pregnant so this came as a total shock. I was terrified in the beginning but my boyfriend helped me realize that this baby is a blessing from God and we should embrace this. The next 9 months were pure bliss....

    Knot in cord

    It has been a little over 3 weeks since my husband and I gave birth to our daughter who was born asleep on February 15th,2017. Our due date was Valentine's Day. We went to our doctor on our due date after what was a perfect pregnancy. We were so excited that day to go to the doctor to find out when we could get her out and finally meet her. The night before on the 13th she was moving like crazy....

    How Could This Happen

    2
    On February 1,2017 I went to my doctors office for my routine ultrasound and stress Test. Everything looked perfect. Then on February 6, 2017 (at 37 weeks, 5 days) I went in for another ultrasound and stress Test. This time, my baby girl had no heart beat. It felt like my whole world at just stopped. On February 7 at 615pm she came into and left the world. My boyfriend and I named her Scarlett...

    Struggling Relationship

    1
    I am new to this group but I lost my son at 31 weeks 5 days into my pregnancy and delivered him in August. Everything about life has been difficult since. The thing I am struggling with the most right now is my relationship with my husband. We have always been very good at communicating and through our loss we did a great job at being there for one another. Now, though there is constant tension...

    Insurer pay child death benefits for stillbirth?

    2
    My baby boy was stillborn at 30 weeks.  Although my state, Illinois, requires a burial after 20 weeks, neither my insurer (Cigna) or my fiance's (Minnesota Life) would pay out the child death benefits.  They required the child to be born breathing (I've heard that other policies won't pay out for 14 days!).  The reason why we paid into the policy was for assistance in the burial costs. I'm...

    My Angel's Due Date Coming Up

    6
    Tomorrow is my baby's due date, January 30th, 2017.  It's definitely hard because I can't help thinking that my baby girl should still be here.  I spent a lot of time this morning replaying what happened the day she passed about 6 weeks ago on December 18, 2016. At my last prenatal appointment, about 2 weeks prior to her passing, I told my doctor that I had been experiencing soreness in my...

    Dedicating a Bible

    1
    My husband and I would like to dedicate a bible from our Lutheran Church in our daughter's name. I am having difficulty coming up with the words to inscribe. Due to our mixed faiths, we chose to cremate Stella and rather than hold a formal ceremony, we celebrated her on All Saints Day. The bible will sit in our family pew and be utilized by the immediate family (parents, sisters, and brother)....

    Sad to be here

    7
    I gave birth to my sleeping boy this week at 33 weeks and 3 days. He was moving perfectly all morning, then just stopped. His heart stopped. Going through labor knowing he was not alive was the hardest thing I've ever done. My pregnancy was perfect and uncomplicated, and there's no answer as to what happened to my baby boy. I'm empty, broken, hurting, and so lost. I stumbled upon this group and...

    Feeling Guilty

    I lost my baby girl almost two months ago on December 18th, 2016.  I was 33 weeks and 6 days pregnant. I'm having the hardest time accepting that my baby is gone and I constantly blame myself.  I believe that if my fiancé and I had gotten to the hospital sooner my baby would be here right now with us. I cry every day. My fiancé has been very supportive but me being sad all the time is taking...
