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.
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.
