Ladies.... It was just a few days ago that I was perusing the second trimester boards - so happy to be pregnant... Its amazing how a few days can change your whole life.
I lost my little one yesterday, at 22 weeks. My water broke at 21.. and, I was hoping for a miracle. But there was none to be had.. Not a drop for him to develop in - I hoped and prayed that some fluid would pocket around him, but everyday, nothing accumulated... The rupture must have been too severe.. Yesterday, he was induced and taken to heaven the minute he left my womb.. I am overwhelmed with emotion, very depressed, shocked, terrified and just downright miserable. I can't imagine how these feeling will ever go away or even subside.
I am 42, and this would have been our first child, conceived naturally... I am obviously running out of bandwidth.. and now that I know I have a severely incompetent cervix, my chances for becoming a mommy are even slimmer.
God bless my little angel, Skylar... born November 30th and taken straight to Heaven to join the ranks of the angels elite.
God bless all of the other mom's that are wearing the same shoes as I.. no one will ever know the pain and heartache that you carry with you each and every day.
