Thank you everyone for your compaasion and concern. I really appreciate it very much.
Ireland had a True Cord Knot that was pulled taut and a nuchal cord X2 (around the neck). I hadn't felt her move for a while on Saturday, and I couldn't find her heartbeat with my rented doppler. I did everything your supposed to do to get baby moving, and nothing worked. I then went to the hospital fully expecting for everything to be ok, just to get peace of mind. She was gone. We were heartbroken and in shock. I spent the ride home, all night, and the next day violently vomitting. We induced Sunday afternoon and she was born at 12:01am Sunday. We were relieved to find out it wasn't anything genetic, but it didn't lessen the pain. I know there wasn't anything I could have done to prevent this, so I am not tortured by the "what ifs". And with God's sweet grace and mercy, I am doing as good as you could ask for under these circumstances. I have faith that we will be blessed with another child. I am just so anxious to be in a place that we can start. Not that any child would replace my Ireland. I will always miss her and want her with me; and imagine what she would be like; but I am almost 40 and desperately want one more child.
From what I understand in my research, only 1% of babies have a true cord knot, and only 5% of those end in demise.
I am hopeful that my next pregnancy will be successful.
