Tragedy for Friends.

Oh it’s so hard to even type, the horror and the tears.
I got the call yesterday afternoon at work. My dear friend Natashia

 had her first ultrasound yesterday, only to sadly confirm her baby had passed away in utero shortly beforehand. She was just under a month behind me and we were so looking forward to walking this path together, post stillbirth, hand in hand to support one another. Instead she got to lay down on that ultrasound table and hear those horrific words again…I am sorry, your baby has no heartbeat.
The terror.

Her family is devastated and her husband is 100% sure he does not want to try again, as he feel’s blessed with 3 children and want’s to enjoy the rest of his time with his wife. No more pregnancy stresses or broken hearts. Natasha understands, because Robbie was supposed to be her last, and he passed away at term from a true knot in his cord. I understand the feeling the inconclusion one feels after carrying a baby to term and lossing it, I understand why she was so determined to try again, but I also see her husband’s perspective as well. It’s such a terrible and heartbreaking situation to be in.

We will find out next week what they feel the cause of death was, but as it stands the Dr. feel’s it may have been Downs related. Please go over to her site and leave some kind words for her poor broken heart and shattered dreams.

Natashia, I am so sorry, wish I could take all the pain away hun and make it all better again. So not fair. Seems like the world likes to shit on the best possible people.

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” — Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. I am so sorry for your friend an her family. That’s horrible and unfair. My thoughts are with her.

  3. oh nooooooooo 😦 i am so sorry to hear this. how terribly unfair. *hugs and strength to natashia if she is reading*

  4. Oh, no! No!!!!

  5. I’m so sorry to hear this, such a heartbreak. I understand her husband’s POV; men are always wanting to shield us from pain and sheild themselves as well. Grief and uncertainty are not a comfortable feeling for anyone, but especially men. I pray that they will have some time to heal before making a final decision about not trying again :-/
