Thoughts and Prayers

Two weeks ago while watching Grey’s Anatomy, I, like most of us broke down while watching a young woman deliver her stillborn baby. I couldn’t fathom how that would feel to have to do such a thing. I could not handle the thought of it.

Yesterday I got a call from one of my best girlfriends. She was 24 weeks pregnant. She went in for a regular checkup and they could not find a heartbeat. She had to be induced last night to deliver her stillborn baby girl. The unimaginable was happening to my friend and her family. This was their frist baby. She was in pretty good spirits at the hospital last night. Just really nervous, not knowing what to expect about anything in the near future. When I left at midnight, nothing had happened yet.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE say a little prayer for them today.

Update: Baby Faith was delivered around 2:30 this morning. She weighed just over one pound. They both got to hold her for a little while.

  1. Oh my goodness. I to watched the Greys episode and just couldn’t even imagine what that must be like. I will keep your friend and her family in my thoughts and prayers!

  2. I can’t imagine what she is going through (know exactly who you are talking about and it makes me soooo sad). She and her family are in our prayers.

  3. This is something that I worry about every single day. I am almost 23 weeks and I know that I am not out of the water yet. I know of so many people that this has happened to in the past few years. It is scary! I wish your friewnd the very best and the most comfort.

  4. It’s hard to believe that this sort of thing can happen to someone so close to you. They are in my prayers…what an incredibly difficult time.

  5. That was a big fear of mine during pregnancy. I will definitely pray for your friend. I attended a funeral for my cousin’s stillborn baby when I was a teenager, and despite the fact that no one ever even had a chance to meet that baby, it was the saddest funeral I’ve ever attended. My cousin did, however, go on to have two very healthy children, and I pray that your friend experiences the same.
