Bear hugs and kisses.
There are not many times that I am left for a loss of words, but I believe this would be one of those times.
For my heart has just broken.

I am so sorry! My heart breaks for you and your husband. I understand wanting another baby. I got pregnant two months after my son died. He had been in the NICU for 5 1/2 months. I'm now 3 months pregnant and very nervous, yet hopeful. Planting a tree is a wonderful way to honor Janell's memory. I will keep you and your family in my prayers. I hope this forum will help you as you deal with your grief. I've been attending a local Support Group once a month for people who have lost babies. I've found the group very helpful. It helps you realize that you are not crazy as you go through the different stages of grief. Please let us know how you are doing from time to time.

we lost our baby

Postby e_allen » Tue Jul 27, 2004 02:27 pm

On Saturday, July 24th at about 5pm, I noticed that even after eating the baby didn’t move so my husband, Ethan, and I went to the hospital. The nurses proceeded to hook me up to do a non-stress test but after about 20 minutes trying, they couldn’t locate a heartbeat. An ultrasound was ordered and it was determined that our baby had died. Labor induction was started along with several medications to keep pain and my blood pressure under control. The doctor broke my water at about 5pm Sunday, July 25th and around 2 hours later our daughter, Janell Victory Allen, was born weighing 3 lbs 1.7 oz and 16.5 inches long. She was perfect and beautiful. We all got the time we needed to say our good-byes. It is thought that her cord was pinched as it was wrapped very tightly around her neck and three times around her leg. My husband and I are now recovering at our home, trying to figure out what we do now. We are already planning our next child, as in our hearts we know that it is the only way we can begin to feel better. This would have been our first baby and we are both devastated. Her body is being cremated and we plan to plant a tree in her ashes so that she can live on forever in the world like she will in our hearts. We understand that this was a freak accident and there was nothing anyone could have done to prevent it. Please, we ask you: live your lives full of love in memory of our daughter and never take what you have for granted.

Janell Victory due Sept. 23 - bed rest since 27 weeks - PIH
