I finally found the time and strength to sit down and read through this thread. Thanks very much for the nice words.

On Saturday, my water broke and the doctor said that tends to put your body in motion for labor...which it did. On Sunday, the resident checked me and I had dilated to 4 centimeters and by noon on Monday, I was fully dilated. Samantha was soo little that the contractions were just too intense for her. She was tiny...could fit into your hand. They checked for a pulse, but there wasn't any. I got to hold her for just a little before I was taken to the OR because the placenta was stuck to my uterus. While they were getting the placenta out, I lost enough blood that I had to be watched closely Monday evening. I was being given meds to keep me from hemorrhaging and have been pumped with antibiotics since Saturday to keep infection out of my uterus. Physically, my body is tired. I got very little sleep while I was in the hospital because the nurses were changing my IV bags every hour or so. Emotionally, we are doing ok. I've been trying to keep myself busy as I am not allowed to drive until next week and not expected to go to work until Monday (although I will probably chicken out). The hospital gave us a "memory box" that has a little blanket identical to the blanket they wrapped Samantha in, along with a small teddy bear and the flowers that they took her picture with. I've put my hospital bracelet in the box as well as the pictures they took of her and her tiny little hat that was put on her head. We've been getting sympathy cards mixed in with our Christmas cards, which is a little hard for us, but the sympathy cards are going into the box as well. Right now, I am looking for some sort of ornament to hang on the tree for Samantha. We get a new ornament every year...Stephen collects the Star Trek space ships from Hallmark and I collect ornaments while we go on vacation, but I want something for Samantha, so I am spending some of my time looking for one that I like.

That is pretty much all that there is to say right now. Again, thanks for your thoughts and prayers. Its nice to know that they are there.

Also, thanks to some very special people for the wonderful Samantha plant that I received on Wednesday. We both love it and will treasure it always.

Jenn & Stephen,
I am so sorry for your loss. I don't know how I can be of help but just know I am there for you when and if you need me. What a special treasure the hospital gave you. This has just touched my heart, I feel so for you. May you find the strength to deal with this. I just wish there was more I could do. My shoulder is always available.
With love,
Nancy

Today was my first day back to work. I was only scheduled for 2 hours....and glad of it! I spent most of those 2 hours dodging people and their questions. Why can't people understand that you don't want to talk about something?? I mean, the director had even gone around the school and TOLD people not to come to me and ask questions. Hopefully tomorrow will be better....thank goodness I'm only scheduled for 2 hours again!

We found an ornament that we like for Samantha. It is part of the "Heart of Motherhood" collection that Hallmark has. It is a heart that has a small locket on the front of it for a small picture. Then the large part of the ornament opens and you can put small tokens that hang on the inside of it. We are getting one token that is a small square with a tiny footprint in the middle and then another token that is a square with the December birth stone in the middle of it. We did a 2 day delivery so that we'll have it before we leave to go to Stephen's parent's house for Christmas.

Also, I wanted to thank those of you who sent cards this past week. We really appreciate them...and Stephen was pretty impressed that people who we haven't even met cared enough to send cards. I must say that we are both handling this pretty well. We've gotten to spend time talking about how we feel about the different aspects of certain things and now we know what is going through...and WAS going through...each other's heads. thumbup

...our smiles are returning smile

Jenn,

So sorry that work was so difficult. I hope that tomorrow is better for you. The ornament sounds beautiful. So glad that things with you and Stephen are good and you are talking. That is going to get you both through the hard times and the good times to come. You are both still in my thoughts and prayers.

Jenn, I also have not been on for a while, am devastated at your and Stephens loss. No words can ever take away your grieving "I Know".
You need to grieve for Gracie, in time, a long time in the future it will get easier I promise.
For now take comfort from your family and friends.
My thoughts and prayers are with Gracie, you and Stephen.

I was told when I lost my son that loosing a still born child is loosing a "perfect child". Because the child has never grown up to become her own person she is instead an embodiment of every hope and dream her parents have always cherished which is very very hard to loose. All my love and compassion while you work through this time.

And know that she is and always will be with you especially at this time of year. My sons name was Phillip Wayne and his nickname was ET. He was 20 days old when he died. He never came home from the hospital.
