Still born

My sweet angel Ireland Grace was stillborn this past Sunday at 12:01am February 7, 2011 at 35 weeks. She was with me so briefly here in this life but will FOREVER remain in our hearts and minds. I know she just couldn't wait to get back to the loving arms of her Heavenly Father and I envision a li...ttle girl skipping and singing all the way back to Heaven. We were able to hold her for a few hours after delivery and those were the most precious incredibly tender happy and devistating moments of my life. I am so blessed and greatful for the time I had with her, and I can't wait to see her again someday; yet at the same time my heart aches so much missing her every minute. I desperately want to try again, and pray for another girl, but sincerely just want a healthy baby. No one will ever replace my Ireland. I will always miss her and want her with me. I was wondering if anyone else out there had this happen and how soon you tried for another baby.

This is such a terrible tragedy. I am so sorry for you and your family. What a beautiful little angel she is. Do the doctors know why she was still born ?

I am so sorry.

My aunt and good friends had this happen to them and they both waited three months.

My heart breaks for you. Again I am so sorry.

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.

im so sorry, last april my daughter was born alive at 22 weeks. she lived about 2 hours in my arms before she finally passed away. it was the most devestating day , week, months of my life. i would gladly have traded places with her. i was so scared to try again. i had an infection that made me go into labor early. a few months later i naturally conceived identical twin girls and although one is no longer with us im so greatful to have the remaining baby. my doctors moved me into a high risk catagory and see me once a week. so far im doing great. she is moving right now, im still not considered "viable" but im getting close. good luck to you and prayers for your sweet baby.
