There's no other way to put this. I couldn't find a heartbeat this morning with the doppler. We drove up the interstate to the hospital and my doctor confirmed with an ultrasound that the baby died. I last got a heartbeat, a nice strong one, late Tuesday night, so that means the baby almost certainly died yesterday, the feast of St. Andrew. I'm in shock. I feel like this can't possibly be happening again. My two babies died at the same age. In the event that I haven't delivered by then I have a scheduled induction Monday the 12th. They have assured me we'll be able to take the baby home to bury.

Please keep us all in your prayers. This is so hard.

  19. Oh, Anna, my heart hurts for you. I have been "following" your blog for months now without officially following or commenting because the first time I tried to comment it didn't work and I was too lazy to figure it out. Anyway, I miscarried twice before we had our daughter, once very early and once at 10 wks 5 days. I know this is one of the most painful things that can happen. Bru and l will both be praying for you. I wish we lived closer so we could offer more tangible support.

    There's nothing else to say aside from I'm so sorry you've lost this precious little one. This precious little child that is now playing with big brother Innocent.

    So not fair!

  38. I am so so sorry. I haven't posted here before, but I've read off and on for awhile. I miscarried at about 9 weeks a couple years ago. I comfort myself by thinking of my baby in the arms of St. Thekla (close as I can figure she died on her day), who will cuddle her for me until, God willing, someday I will meet her in heaven... Memory eternal for your little one, and may St. Andrew guard him for you.
