We were so Excited to have a little baby on the way. On Valentine’s Day we found out our little one would be a little princess. Daddy rubbed my belly, and said hi to his little girl everyday. I was so excited. Got the entire room put together and all of her stuff. Went to her 20 week scan during week 21 of my pregnancy and she was perfect!! I was so excited.
One week later, our world came to a crashing stop! I hadn’t felt our baby move in over 24 hours, so I called my doctor. He got me in right away only to find out our princess didn’t have a heartbeat. I was absolutely devastated. Everything was so surreal.
The very next day I gave birth to our beautiful little girl. She was 13 inches long and a little over half of a pound. Absolutely beautiful. I cried endlessly. The chaplain at the hospital baptized our little one. We were able to spend 7 hours with our daughter before saying our final goodbyes. My heart was shattered. I hated leaving that hospital without our little girl. I felt like it was all a bad dream. We didn’t stay in the hospital. We went home, everything seemed so sad. Two meltdowns later, I have found peace in the “signs” from God. I have found comfort knowing our angel is in Heaven and I’ll see her again some day. I feel lucky to have been blessed with her even if it was for a short time.
