My baby boy, Caleb, was stillborn at 25 weeks. I was on bed rest since week 20 due to preeclampsia. I was so naive- I thought if anything were to happen it would happen to me. It did not even cross my mind that my baby could be stillborn. I thought I was okay since we were close to the third trimester. I miss my baby so much! He was our first baby and we were so looking forward to him. Today has been really rough since it was 4 weeks ago today that I had him. It is almost 4 p.m. And I am still in my nightgown. Most days I have been able to get dressed and do something but today mostly all I have done is cry and relive his birth. I was in the hospital for three days because it took 29 hours to deliver him. I just feel like all the air has been knocked out of me. My hubby has been wonderful and I am so thankful for him but I am sure a crying wife every night is getting old. We go to a grief counselor and that helps some but it doesn't change the fact that our baby is dead.
