Helping son deal with MC (LC ment)
Hi everyone. My name is Stefanie. We went in for our Sono on Friday at 9 weeks and baby was measuring right on track but didn't have a heartbeat. They are guessing baby died Wed/Thurs. I have a D&C tomorrow. I am very nervous about it, I have never been put under or had any sort of surgical procedure done.
We have a 4.5 year old son and a 2 year old daughter. They were both excited for a baby but Eathan understood it alot better. He told everyone he was having a baby brother and was insistent it was a boy. He would kiss my tummy and every week we would read about what was developing on the baby and what it looked like now. When we told him he got very sad and said he really wanted a baby brother. We have decided not to have any more kids. I really want to help him understand and deal with this whole thing. He is a very sensitive kid.
