Late Term and Child Loss


Hello, ladies.  I'd like to introduce myself and hopefully join some of the conversations happening on this board.  I've been lurking for a couple of days, and this seems like such a supportive group. I'm not sure how much I'll be posting, but I felt like I should introduce myself even if I may be mostly lurking.

I may write more details later, but in short, two weeks ago today I went into preterm labor at 23 weeks with our second son.  We were unable to stop labor, and Isaiah Samuel was stillborn at 10:44pm on May 16th due to oxygen deprivation caused by a complete placental abruption during delivery.

It still sometimes catches me by surprise that this is my life, that this has actually happened to my family.  I reread that paragraph, and I have to remind myself that that's MY story.  

I never anticipated being here.  But who does?  I hope you'll have me.

DS#2 5/16/13 stillborn after preterm labor and placental abruption at 23 wks

  • I am sorry that we have to be here, I am so sorry that you lost Isaiah. It is very hard to take in that this has happened. Some days I get caught off guard with the realization that this happened to my family. Who thinks that this would happen to them? Take your time opening up as you need to, even just reading other people's posts help me cope. We are here for you :)
