    Unhappy my beautiful boy

    Hello everyone
    I am writing this today as tomorrow may be a tough day. On the 11 January 2001 my beautiful first child Floyd James arrived. Sadly he was only 24wk1day and stillborn. i had been in hospital for 3.5 weeks tring to keep him as long as possible. i was told at 12 weeks i had placenta preavia and they booked me in for a unpreventable abortion as his outcome was 'not positive'. The day before i was scheduled a midwife told me that if my baby hadnt given up neither should i and her kindness and good advice made me keep trying. i was bleeding for the next twelve weeks and went into labour 3 times. on the 11 jan i woke up bleeding profusely. my husband was called and the dr said i had to be induced as i was at high risk of clotting. my husband and i agreed that we could try for another baby but there would never be another 'sonya'. with tears in my eyes i allowed myself to be induced and at 5.29 that evening my beautiful boy was born sleeping. After being warned he may be dark because of lack of fluid around him we were happy to see him a nice healthy pink(hence the name Floyd as in Pink Floyd, our favourite band). It took me half an hour of grieving before i could look at him. We have moved on and had 2 more beautiful boys, but i find myself very depressed and sad on his arrival date. Thankyou for having this forum and allowing me to relieve some of my sadness.

    words cannot express my sympathy for you as you face this anniversary - it can be so difficult to face these days, but take heart in knowing that your angel Floyd is watching over you and your family

    Oh Sonya, big hugs to you. How hard for you, and how hard it must have been for your DH to have said something so profound, sad and beautiful at the same time.

    Unhappy

    thankyou for all your kind words and wishes. This forum has helped immensely with my sorrow as you can feel very alone on these days. I had a rather peaceful day and i think this is the least i have cried on this date in 6 years. no matter how many years pass it can still feel like a fresh wound. i just thank goodness i was blessed with two more healthy boys and i know Floyd is up there with all his little angel friends.

    oh Sonya,

    I am so very sorry that you have to live with the loss of your special little boy. He must have chosen you as his mummy for some reason. You nurtured him as much as you could, and allowed him to be with you as long as he could.

    Big big hugs to you and to your husband.

    Linda.
