I awoke to a new day.

Losing a baby is very hard as most of you can imagine. It's hard emotionally and physically and mentally. It's not something you can ever prepare yourself for.
The night we lost our baby was very traumatic. I had what they call a placenta abruption.
It is very rare ,so if you're expecting, this is not a common thing to happen..but we had done all the right things. I had started spotting on Sunday and stayed in bed all day.
Scott and I went to the Dr. on Monday morning and heard our precious one's heart beat and we were told that everything was fine. We laughed and were so thankful to the Lord. On Monday night I awoke to alot of blood. It was terrifying to say the least. Our dear sweet neighbor came within two mins and we were out the door. Our Dr's office is an hour and ahalf away and I knew we couldn't make it that far. We stopped at our local hospital and they stabilized me and I was rushed by ambulance to brookwood. I couldn't see Scott but he called back to me "Robin I'm here" I knew he was but it was the words themselves that I remember. "Robin I'm here" I am not leaving I will not let you go through this alone. If our husbands are supposed to love us as Christ's loves the church then my husband is a walking example of Christ.(not a perfect example) but his love for me is extraordinary. His devotion to me is unwavering and his example of a Godly christian husband and father is a good one. He stood over me in those wee hours of the morning comforting me and being my rock. He will miss our little baby but he is so grateful that the Lord spared my life. I'm not sure where another day will lead our family,but I know that as Scott as my protector and the absolute love of my life I will follow him and try to be a better wife as he tries to lead our family down the road that the Lord as set before us. Not all of our roads are going to be easy but I pray they will draw us closer to each other and mostly draw us closer to The Lord...

I am so truly sorry for your lose. I have been there too with losing a child.
I experienced this same thing medically as well only I was 8 months pregnant. Blood all over is an underestimate. It was a week before Christmas. Baby almost didnt make it and neither did I. But here we are today. It was a very scary time and yes it is rare.

We are thankful you are alright.
Your in my thoughts and prayers tonite.

Robin,
I am so sorry for your loss. I lost a baby at 15 weeks and it is so devastating. I pray the Lord's peace be upon you and that He sustains and holds you up during this time.
