Very sad update

I am copying and pasting this from LBT because I just can’t write this all out again.

I’m sorry if this is jumbled, but I am really out of it right now.

On Sunday 2/8 at about noon, I had some slight vaginal bleeding and called my doctor. He had me go to the hospital to get checked. I was having a small amount of cramping, but nothing unusual. When I was checked, they found that I was 4 cm dilated and the bag of waters was bulging out of my cervix. I was put head down in the bed for the rest of the day, but at about 8 am on Monday morning, my water broke. I was monitored throughout the day for infection and my temp was creeping up and up. Late afternoon, my temp was 100.4 and it was determined that I had an infection and must deliver. Being only 20 weeks, we knew the baby couldn’t make it.

Pitocin was started in the evening and I labored through the night. Sydney Alexis was born at 4:30 am on February 10 and even though she was only 20w4d gestation, she lived for two hours and then passed away in my arms. She was perfect in every way and looked just like her older brother.

Please say a prayer for us. I am hurting so badly, I don’t know how I can make it through this time. I am still in the hospital, probably until tomorrow and will spend as much time with the baby as I can.

TIA for any thoughts and prayers as we can use all we can get right now.
