It is with a heavy heart that I announce the death of my baby boy. Baby Gavin Michael Harris was born at 19.4 weeks on 7/23/10 at 2:05 am. This was my 5th loss. He weighed 8.30 ounces and was 10 inches long. He survived for one minute and at 2:06 am he took his final breath and passed away. He was the most perfect little person I've ever seen. The cause of my losing him was an incompetant cervix that opened with no warning signs. I've never had cervical issues in the past, which makes this more devastating, not to mention how long and hard I tried for this little baby. I spent 4 days in the hospital and was just released to come home Sunday night. I wish you all well in your pregnancies but I feel I no longer belong to this community. I hope you all deliver healthy happy babies, and maybe someday soon, I will be back to share the news of a new pregnancy and go on to deliver a healthy full term baby.
