I had boy/girl twins born at 24 weeks. Our son died at 2 days old and our little girl lived and is about to turn 3 and is doing very well. Even though he was bigger, 2lb to her 1lb 14oz, they say boys have a harder time when born premature. We still haven't fully recovered from his death, don't think we ever will. My thoughts are with you.

I lost twins at 21weeks 4 days due to Hellp syndrome my daughter was 223 grams and my son was 199 grams they were born alive and they put up a good fight living for 3 and 4 hours. We had to terminate the pregnancy so I could survive.....not a day goes by that I dont think of them. I have gone on to have my daughter who was born at 33 weeks, weighing 4lb 2 oz and my son was born at 32 weeks weighing 5lbs. I did not get hellp syndrome again thank god.

My daughter was born at 21 weeks 5 days gestation on February 21st 2010 when I was only 16 years old. I went in for an ultrasound and they told me she was gone. It was the hardest most stressful time of my life. She was 1 pound 1 ounce and 13.5 inches long. I miss her so much. Rest in paradise Brooklyn Nicole.

My first child was born at home with a midwife; no doctors, no nurses, just totally natural. With the second pregnancy, the same midwife detected very early on that something wasn't right and told me that legally she could not take on a high-risk case. She went with me to see a medical doctor who so rudely told me, "one or both of you will die," referring to the polyhydraminos condition. I refused to see another doctor until the 27th week, when a very nice woman doctor told me that I was dialating and should prepare myself for an early birth. She could see that I was upset and yet in denial about my feelings, so she didn't push me. She recommended a delivery doctor and hospital. The next week I had the "bloody show", called the midwife, who told me to get to the hospital right away, and that she'd catch up to me later as she was busy with a home delivery at the time.

I went to the hospital in the late afternoon and was hooked up to a fetal monitor, and told I was in active labor. I refused to accept this, as I felt absolutely no pain. I was so huge that all feelings in the abdominal area were numbed. I hid my real feelings of being very frightened behind a wall of denial and being the "patient from hell." I refused to believe I was in labor and about to give birth almost three months too early.

By late night, I was told that I needed to start pushing. Well, I could not push! How could I when I didn't feel anything down there? Then I was told I need to have a C-Section. I refused to allow the procedue until the midwife arrived. Finally....she was able to show up a little after midnight and just one look at her face and I knew I had better behave. So I gave permission for the procedure and was bounced on my the medical staff, rushed off to surgery, and put totally under anethesia.

I woke up on the operating table before the doctors were through sewing me up. I was confused, couldn't figure out what had happened, and then started to panic. I screamed at the top of my lungs out of total fear. Quickly, the staff put me back under. I woke up 16 hours later in a hospital room, all alone. I was anxious to see the baby, so I wrapped up my IV and cath lines and strolled through the halls and elevators until I found the baby nursery. Never having been in a hospital before, I didn't know I was supposed to use the call button and ask for permission to leave my bed and room.

I got to the nursery, but my baby wasn't there! I was told that he would be in the NICU. So, up another floor and down another hall, gowned up, and went in to see him. My first look and I felt my knees start to buckle. He was so small and sickly looking and hooked up to a million wires. But I sucked it up and put on a happy face and greeted my new son.

I stayed in the hospital for three more days. I went back to work a week later. Every spare moment, day and night, I was in the NICU with my son. That was a roller coaster of a time and ended on the day of his original due date when he died. Then came a disheartening first year of mourning, then four more years of acceptance but terrible grief. And now a lifetime of sadness, yet appreciation for what he did to help others.

I know this was started years ago but I ran across this page in a search.
We have had 2 girls, The oldest is almost 3 and is healthy now. She was 1lb 11.5ozs at birth due to Pre Eclampsia (although I think I was getting HELLP as well) and a full placental abruption.
She was a 28 weeker who spent 8 1/2 months in NICU with surgeries to close 2 holes in her heart and a feeding tube placement. We're getting ready to get the tube taken out, her BPD has been cleared and the other 3 (she had 5) holes are soon to be either declared nonproblematic or gone (when she's 3, they want to see her).
She's close but still not walking on her own and she's behind talking but a lot of other types of development are catching up or caught up and she's learning fast.

Our second daughter was born at 36w 4d and was almost 5lbs but had anencephaly so she only lived a few hours, we all knew and had time to prepare for her death.

We're done with trying and pregnancy now but I've been diagnosed with a gene mutation that causes all of that plus a lot of other fun problems and a restrictive diet so I'm not planning on passing it down any more (I have a 100% chance of passing it, my daughter only has one affected so either my husband is a carrier or is unmutated but I just don't feel right passing it down further)

My baby was born Dec 10 2013 at 24 weeks. I started having bad cramps and contractions started within the next hour, so i drove to the hospital. By the time the nurses wheeled me to the labor and delivery department i was in so much pain, it was almost unbearable. They put me in a room and asked me to get in the bed, but when i stood up, the baby came out before i even had the chance to undress. She was still in the sac and it was still connected to me, so she didn't fall to the floor. I heard a nurse tell the doctor who just walked in, "She thinks her baby just came out." I thought to myself, 'she thinks?!' I know that SOMETHING just came out of me! They laid me in the bed, and saw my daughter in between my legs, they finished the delivery and a nurse rushed her out of the room, and i saw her limp body for only a second. After transferring from room to room and being monitored for what felt like days while they asked me a million questions, i finally was taken to NICU where i got to see her after about 5 hours. She was 500 grams and there was a nurse telling me what all the tubes were for. She kept referring to my baby as 'it' instead of 'she' or 'her'. It pissed me off to the point where i struggled not to slap her. I just wanted her gone. My daughter couldn't breathe or open her eyes, and because of the way she was delivered, she had bruises all over her tiny body. They had a tube in her belly giving her nutrients, and a tube in her mouth forcing air into her lungs, which were not fully developed. I asked for a doctor who showed up shortly after, and he was very difficult to speak to, partly because English wasn't his first language, and partly because he was terrible at providing details to someone who never attended med school. I felt like i needed a doctor's dictionary while speaking to him. All i could really gather from this conversion was that my baby was critically ill, and was having little seizures from the amount of time she was not breathing while i was delivering her. The possibility of brain damage was large, and they told me there was a small chance she would survive, but she could possibly have numerous chronic disabilities. She was unable to absorb oxygen while on the respirator, and her blood pressure was very low. They gave her a number of medications while i painfully tried to keep my composite over the next few hours. When they closed for shift change, i went back to my room, where my nurse kept harassing me for a damn urine sample. I just wanted to be left alone. At this point, i hadn't slept for almost 24 hours, and i wanted to try and get some sleep before the NICU opened back up in 2 hours. I fell asleep for 4 hours, and rushed to NICU when i woke up. My daughter's condition hadn't improved in the slightest, she in fact had gotten worse. Her blood pressure continued to drop, and her oxygen level was even lower then before. The medical director had just shown up to speak to me with the lead NICU doctor and the charge nurse about my baby's treatment. They told me that it did not look well for her, but they wanted to give her a blood transfusion to help raise her blood pressure. I asked them more about her chances of survival, and they explained that because she was delivered in such poor conditions, they were unable to give her steroids while still in the womb to help her lungs develop, she had very large amounts of acid in her blood, she was very bruised, and was having seizures which indicated brain damage, she may live but she also may have severe disabilities. I was in shock. Numb. Angry. They allowed me to hold her in my arms, still connected to all her machinery, where she passed away, her chest still moving up and down from the respirator doing its job. It was surprisingly very peaceful and i didn't shed a tear while holding her. After i laid her back in her incubator, i finally broke down and cried loud enough for the entire hospital to hear me. I gave them directions on what to do with her body, said Goodby to her, and left. Left the unit, left the hospital. The nurse begged me to stay, saying i hadn't been discharged, but i didn't care. I would have tackled security to the ground to get out of there if i had to. I drove home and spent a lovely evening with my 7 year old daughter, and after she went to sleep, I'm ashamed to admit, i drank heavily until i fell asleep. 12 hours later, I'm here, writing my story. RIP my sweety baby girl. I will always love you, and hopefully we meet again.

I am sitting in a hospital bawling my eyes out as I am reading all of your stories.. I am so sorry for everyone who has lost their precious babies.. We are lucky to have our baby girl. Although she is having some issues with feeding and not gaining enough weight, (failure to thrive).. and is now being fed by a tube due to severe aspiration. I feel blessed to have her in my arms everyday, all of our problems seem so small compare to losing a child. Having a baby is definitely scary experience.. just the thought of something being wrong is just awful.. and I think she will be our only child. Peace & Love to you all,. may all your sweet angels rest in peace ♥

My story is a long one, but I hope it helps any moms who have lost a preemy. It's been 26 years ago that I lost my baby boy. That's a long time for pain to hang on, but I must ask myself what is the pain about? For what happened while he was alive or for what didn't happen because he wasn't able to live out a normal babyhood, childhood, and adulthood? Or is it for myself after having gone through all the stress while he lived and the grieving after his death? I think it is the latter, the pain is about me. --- At first, there was a lot of pain related to guilt for things I did or didn't do during pregnancy that might have caused me to be high-risk, even though many doctors told me that my condition was "mysterious" and the reason totally unknown. So, most of the pain has been about not giving myself credit for the tremondous amount of strength it took for me to survive the horrible days while my child was alive. --- He was born at 28 weeks, lived 10 weeks, and died on the day he was supposed to have been born. As the mother who naturally wanted to comfort, fix, take care of, protect, and control my baby's life, I was not able to do any of that, being forced instead to have nurses and doctors, all strangers to me, take my place as the mother. My child was very sick with all kinds of "mysterious" conditions, on a vent his whole life except for a few seconds when I was allowed to hold him (only twice during his 10 weeks of living), had several surgeries and lots of experimental procedures in the effort to save his life. --- For you moms just starting your grieving journey, please consider my words: There is nothing you could have done differently to save your child, either before or after delivery and during their short lifetime. Whatever faith you might have, it's good to see it as "God's Will." As one of the moms here said, God called your child back. If they suffered during their short life as a preemy, their suffering is over now, and that you should be glad of. But could you have stopped that suffering? No. Believe me, no. -- I lived with guilt and remorse for six long years until I unexpectantly met two women who had had the same pregancy condition I had (polyhydraminos) and yet they lived and so did their babies. (I had been told by a doctor that my baby and/or myself would die and that was that). At first, I was upset, "it's not fair!" but then I realized that my child had sacrificed his life so that future babies could live. He had been born at a university medical teaching hospital. All of his surgeries and the majority of the procedures that I allowed (and even those that the doctors did without my consent) were experimental. I was always told that the surgery or "procedure would give the baby a 50/50 chance and if it doesn't work, then might help other babies in the future." And it turned out to be true! No, my baby didn't make it, but other babies did (and still do). It took my son, and other babies who were experimented on, to die to prove that those procedures didn't work and that something different had to be tried. Enough "somethings" occured so that finally, babies and moms could be saved who had polyhydraminos. -- That really lifted the guilt off of me. But then why do I still cry? Because I fail to give myself credit for living through that short, but intense time of our lives. It's like having PTSD. Actually, it is PTSD and needs to be treated as such, which I have begun to do now. And also, to recognize that the loss of a child, of any age, for any reason, is painful and leaves a mark on our lives forever, and that's normal and it's not a bad thing. -- So moms, and dads, yes, go to the support groups, go to grief counseling, go on this long journey. You don't have to let go of your child, but you do need to move on, eventually. -- Take care and know how blessed you are for having had the chance to bring into this world a special person and to give them back to God.

I had twins at 24 weeks gestation this past April. My son Jacob past away the next day in my arms but our Jonathan stayed in the NICU for 4 months and is now 7 months old and home with me. I am so thankful for him- he is my world but I can't stop thinking of Jacob. I still cry almost everyday. I've been looking for someone who has been through this. I saw you went to a group. How did you find one? I felt weird about going because my other son lived and we had such struggles with him not knowing if he would make it that now I didn't know if it was too late to join a group like that.

I went into preterm labour on Nov. 11, 2012 and at 12:49pm I delivered my beautiful boy Maxim Michael Fantauzzi. He was born at 25 weeks, 3 days. We heard him cry and it was the most beautiful sound I have ever heard. 2 days later, on Nov 13th, we had to let him go. He was bleeding on the left side of his brain and could not be saved. I got to hold him twice, once when he was about 2 hours old and then again when he was dying. Our baby boy died in our arms and Iam truly broken. I spend my days looking at pictures of him and going through my pregnancy in my head. Was it my fibroids that caused this? What about the tooth ache I had at the end of September? Did I ignore warning signs like when my lower stomach felt heavy that 1 day but I thought it was just regular pregnancy pains? My head is spinning and my heart is broken. All I ever wanted was to be able to hold my boy, love him and raise him. I have forever been changed by my little boy Max. He has my heart forever.

I have had three babies. My oldest is 15 yrs old. He was born 4 weeks early and did not have to stay in NICU. My second is almost 3 and she was born 6 weeks early. She spent a week in special care (not the NICU). Both of them are healthy thriving kids. My youngest was born and died on March 21, 2012. He weighed 11 oz and 9.5 inches long. He had classic potters syndrome (bilateral renal agenesis). He was born at 21 weeks. It's a shame that with all the medical technology that they can't find "cures". It is still very hard to deal with.

All your stories have me in tears. My twins were born at 28 weeks. Alice did well right from the start apart from Stage 2 retinopathy and a huge umbilical hernia, but we went through hell with Laura. She had NEC when she was 3 weeks old and had to have an ileostomy with stoma. She also had to have a PDA ligation 3 weeks after that. She stopped breathing 15 times in one night. I was too scared to go and have lunch in case she wasn't alive when I got back to NICU. But they pulled through. Alice came home after 3 months and Laura after 4 months. They are now fit and healthy 17 month old toddlers and I thank God every day. I came so close to losing Laura and that's horrible enough - I can't even begin to imagine what you guys are going through. I will say a prayer for all of you.

I have had 2 premeeies. Connor was born at 29 weeks and was in hospital for 7 weeks. Hes a very strong and healthy boy. My daughter Piper was born at 31 weeks, my placenta ruptured. Piper had alot of problems which we had known about since I was 12 weeks along. I always had hope that she would fight it. Sadly my daughter passed away after 47 mins. I never got to hold her while she was alive. That breaks my heart. I did get to hold for 3 hrs after but its not the same. I love her so much and a day doesnt go by that I dont think about her and wish she was here. I know how u feel. I cant hardly stand to look at another baby yet. Or a pregnant woman. I just live each day as they come and hopehope one day it gets easier. She passed Nov.23 2009.

I am so sorry for your loss... my son was born at 34weeks he was 3lbs 9oz... he wasn't breathing on his own when he was born but by the next day he was. He was born with hypospadieus which is where the slit of his penis isn't at the top so he has to have surgery on that and his belly button only has two blood vessels when it should be three but other than that he is doing well and very blessed.

I lost my first preemie. He lived for just under an hour and then passed away in our arms. He was born at just 21w2d gestation.

My second preemie was born at 27w3d and she survived after 94 days in the NICU and lots of sickness since bringing her home, but she is such a blessing in our lives!

Ive had 3 premmie babies. my first at 30 weeks 4lb 3oz, he's now 9 but has aspergers syndrome, my second was 2lb 3oz at 27 weeks she just tured 8 but has cerebral palsy..mild, my new bub 8 months old was born at 29 weeks weighing 3lb 6oz. It was all terribly frightening journey, massive amounts of time in hospital . I am grateful for the medical staff as my children are here to share their smiles. I will hold them extra close tonight and be grateful as a say a prayer for the little ones that didnt make it. Stay strong and know your babies have touched lives of people they havent met. xxx

I know your pain hun. I delivered triplets at 27 weeks (2 identical girls and a boy) on May 1, 2008. They weighed 1.7, 2.1 and 2.2. My son went into cardiac arrest on my birthday when he was 2 months old. We came within seconds of losing him that day but luckily all of the NICU nurses did what they had to do to bring him back. He now has problems which I feel was due to that incident. My one daughter is doing very well but sadly her identical twin died in the NICU on August 14, 2008. She lived for 3 1/2 months and never was able to get off of the ventilator. Only got to hold her once before she passed. Not one days goes by that I dont think of our Ava Hope.

I'm so sorry. I went in to labor at 22 weeks and was told that odds were I would deliver within 3 days, luckily we were able to slow things down. I spent a month in the hospital and I had my son at 26 weeks. He's doing great. I know exactly how blessed I am to have him with me - so many do not make it.

I had a set of twins boys on april 24th of last year. They were only 26 weeks and suffered from Twin to Twin Syndrome in the womb. Twin A Justin was only 1 pound 4 oz and had a lot of problems. In fact on April 3 i went to the doctor and they gave me 1 week for just to live in my womb. He stayed in the NICU for 6 months 2 days. He suffered from kidney problems and unfortunately heart failure. We loss Justin on October 26,2009. I will never forget that day nor him. But his little brother (Twin B) Jordan weighed 1 pound 7 oz and stayed in the hospital a little over 3 months but is doing really good. Hope you find peace and just keeping praying

Sorry to hear of your loss. It definitely is not easy. We suffered a miscarriage to find out I was carrying twins 3 months later, I went into labor at 25 weeks, and my daughter died 9 hours later. My son survived, although we are blessed to have him it still hurts not having her here with us. I also had another loss a few months ago... I hope you find the peace you need. Good lUck

I am sorry for your loss. My daughter was born at 24 weeks. Her birth weight was 1lb and 8oz. Today, she's 8 years old but I have not had any additional children because of what I went through with my first child bearing experience. I am just too afraid!

I lost a set of twins at 20 weeks due to HELLP Syndrome then went on to have a 30 weeker who thank god, is very healthy! IT is hard and I feel for all of you.

I got chills reading your post...I gave birth to twin boys at 25 weeks 5 days on June 6, 2008. Hunter gave us quite the "roller coaster" but finally came home after 100 days in the NICU on September 15, 2008. His brother developed Necrotizing Entercolitis (NEC) at 5 weeks 5 days old and passed away that same day (July 18, 2008). I got chills because my son's name was Connor Allen. Since then, I delivered another baby, Logan Connor, 9 weeks premature. He came home after 28 days in the NICU. Both Hunter and Logan are doing well, and we will always have our angel Connor to watch over us :)

In 1990 I gave birth to a little girl at 26 weeks. She weighed 1 lb. 3 ounces. She survived for 6 1/2 days. There was something wrong with her kidneys so she couldn't pee and the toxins built up in her body and poisoned her. She died on Aug 13th 1990. Love you Whitney Lynn. On April 11th 2006 I gave birth to a little girl at 33 weeks weighing 4 lbs. 3.8 ounces. She did great. She is a happy 3 year old with no health problems. My little miracle.Love you Arrianna Jean.
