Intro — The Bump
Late Term and Child Loss


First I would like to say how sorry I am for all of your losses. I wish none of us were here or had these things happen.

My husband and I had a miscarriage at 8 weeks last summer. We were thrilled to become pregnant again after the miscarriage. It was not an easy pregnancy - I had hyperemesis gravidarium throughout and up until the beginning of my 3rd trimester. Despite being very sick, taking Zofran and having to go for IV fluids when I had so much vomiting - I could not have been happier. I have always wanted children. So the idea that I was finally going to have a child was just so exciting and wonderful! My husband was just as excited as I was:) We were expecting a boy due in June 2014 with the due date of my husband's birthday. We planned to name him Declan Patrick. Declan arrived on June 4th (our fourth wedding anniversary). The night before he was doing his usual kicking routine as we lay in bed. My husband and I laughing that he was "still in there" as we had been told from the middle of May he could arrive at any moment. My labor began on June 4th at 2am. I woke my husband around 3:30am and we eventually went to the hospital at 6am when my contractions were closer together as instructed. Upon arrival to the hospital they could not find our baby's heart beat. Imaging showed the umbilical cord around his neck and he was no longer alive. We were heartbroken and shocked. The news stopped my labor completely. Around 9am our team asked us how we wanted to deliver Declan. We decided the same way we had planned - naturally. So I began pacing the room and stimulating my nipples to bring the labor back on and the contractions returned around 10am. So I still went through the delivery as planned without any medication, tearing, episitomy or C- section. Declan arrived at 3:28 pm  with the cord around his neck. He is a beautiful angel baby. He was 8 pounds, 10 ounces and 21 inches long. We are still in shock and missing our beautiful little boy who was with us only a short time. Attached are some pictures.

Re: Intro


    I am so, so sorry for the loss of your sweet Declan. Thank you for sharing pictures - he's absolutely beautiful. I lost my son at almost 35 weeks due to an undetected placental abruption, and it was the same for me...fine one minute, gone the next. 

    Please know that we are here for you whenever you need us. It will be a hard road, but we've all been there and are here to support you. This group essentially saved me when I lost my son, and I'm glad you found us (even though I hate that you're here). Thinking of you and your husband, along with your sweet angel baby. Sending lots of hugs and love.

    Declan is beautiful. And what a big healthy boy. I'm so incredibly sorry for your loss. I lost my son in December due to a spontaneous maternal fetal hemmorage two days before his due date.

    I'll be sending you and your family positive energy during this really difficult time.
  • I am so sorry for the loss of your sweet Declan. He is so handsome! Sending thoughts and prayers your way.

    I am so sorry for the loss of your son, Declan. He is beautiful. Our son was due in July and we lost him 1 month ago today at 32 weeks. That moment of learning your baby no longer has a heartbeat is unbearable. I wish you peace. I'm glad you have found this board, I have found it helpful and hope you do too.

  • I am so sorry for the loss of your beautiful boy Declan. Thank you for letting us see pictures. Lean on your husband & those around you. Be gentle on yourself & claim space for grieving. 

    I hope that you are physically starting to feel better. I also lost a full term baby & that was a hard thing in the beginning - to deal with the milk coming & the stitches in addition to the emotional strife.

    We are here for whatever you need.  

  • I am sorry for the loss of your son. He is adorable. My son was stillborn in February because of a maternal fetal hemmorage at 39 1/2 weeks. 

    We are here for you if you need us. I'm sure it doesn't seem possible now, but it does get better.

    I am so sorry for the loss of your son. Those pictures are beautiful and just heartbreaking. Looking at them brings me right back to when my son was stillborn almost a year ago. I hope you can look back and enjoy all the precious memories of the time you had with him while you were pregnant. Take care of yourself, and know we have all been there too so we're here for you!
