'I lost my baby'
What was supposed to be a routine check up turned into a nightmare for this mom.
I lost my baby, I don't know, a few days ago?  What was supposed to be a routine 4th weekly check-up at 21 weeks and a chance to see the gender of our 3rd Child, became a nightmare. No heartbeat.
 
My doctor recommended me having the baby naturally as I already had 2 natural births. I was ok with this. But somewhere amongst the madness and confusion, people told me that it would be less traumatic to go for C-section and not be too aware of what is happening. So the baby was "born" via C-section. The cause of death: umbilical cord twisted, blocking blood flow to the baby.
 
I got a card with the perfect little footprints of my unborn boy... My heart is in pieces... And the questions just keep coming.
 
I feel tricked out of having another baby naturally and I am scared of trying again.
