Ladies, I am so sad right now. A really good friend of mine that I teach with lost her baby tonight. I hope you don't mind that I am posting this here, but I just am really having a hard time wrapping my mind around this.
She is diabetic, so considered high risk. She was due to have a c/s in 3 weeks. She had been going for appts twice a week at least. Everything was fine. She was as huge as a house, but always had a smile on her face The baby was already at least 9 pounds.
I was supposed to go to her house this afternoon and finish painting the nursery. She called to tell me that at her appt. they said her amniotic fluid was high. It had been high earlier in the week, but the baby seemed fine. I guess a high level is 28 and her level was at 45!! They told her to go to the hospital to get checked.
I called her cell to check up on her. I then got a hold of her and she told me Aaron didn't make it. His heart rate dropped into the 70s and they did a c/s. She was put under and didn't know what was going on. She woke up to find that her baby boy was gone. They don't know what he died from. He was 10 lbs 5 oz
I am so upset and still shaking. I am going to see her tomorrow.
If you could, keep her family in your thoughts and prayers. What a horrible time for them not to go home with their baby boy....
