my best friends baby (her third) has got a chromosome problem that is incompatible with life. she's 35 weeks along now, and this morning she called me from the hospital in tears to tell me that her water broke. her baby may be stillborn, it may live a few hours, or even months. I am a complete wreck here without any information.
I wish I knew what was going on, and if she's born yet, how she's doing! it's like torture. my husband is a pharmacist at the hospital where she's giving birth and I feel like calling him and making him find out what's going on! (of course he would never do that, its totally illegal and unethical)
do you have any stories of waiting in horrible suspense for hours and hours? it was also like this when my sister gave birth, but at least in that case we knew the baby was going to be born healthy!
