Hi ladies, just wanted to introduce myself.
My husband and I lost our little boy almost eight weeks ago. He was stillborn at 31 weeks, 3 days. They believe due to a placental abruption, but we don't know if that was the cause or happened after. He had stopped moving, and when I got to the doctors, they were unable to find his heartbeat. I was bleeding pretty badly internally, and he was delivered via emergency c-section, while I ended up in the ICU for a couple days, which was quite traumatic in itself. We named him Colton James, and he looked so much like his big brother! It hurts every time I look at my older son and realize I won't get to watch Colton grow or watch them together.
These past weeks have been a roller coaster, and reading all of your words of reassurance and encouragement has been such a help.
Thanks for letting me share.
