I am so sad... my sister...
I am sorry I am opening a thread to tell a sad story. I just need to at least write it. My dear sister was, finally, pregnant. She is a patient of the ovaric policystic syndrome (sp) and becoming pregnant was a beautiful surprise. She was almost 16 weeks but she had been feeling pain in her lower abdomen. Her gyn said it was normal. But last night my sister's fiance took her to the hospital because the pain was really bad. At the hospital, my sister had an ultrasound, blood tests and everthing seemed OK. There was still one more test needed. An urine test. My sister, helped by her fiance, went to the restroom to take the sample... and taking it, the little baby came out of her vagina, dead. Writing this I am crying because that must has been so terrible for my little sister. And I am not with her because I am in Wisconsin and she lives in Puerto Rico. I am thinking to make a quick trip (thuesday to thursday) there just to hug her and tell her that her suffering is my suffering and that I love her so much and that I am with her in this terrible moment.
Thank you for reading my post.

I am so, so sorry - I had to give birth to a dead child, and it was terrible beyond words. I hope that she and her fiance can find peace in time, and make sure they know that grieving is necessary and allowed. People kept trying to tell me that it was ok because I'd never known my child, but that makes it worse, in a way - so let them know how important it is to name their baby if they feel able, to recognise the existence, however short, of this life.
