Pregnant after trying for 7 yrs and then Stillbirth at 20 weeks

March 29,2019 was the most terrible day of our lives. After going through several years of fertility testing and <a href="">IUI</a>’s and surgeries to remove fibroids and then Failed <a href="">IVF</a>, we got pregnant naturally after a 7 year journey of trying to conceive. We found out in Dec, on our 16th wedding anniversary that we were pregnant. That was the best day of our lives. I was 4 days late and decided to take a pregnancy test and it came up positive right away. We couldn’t wait to tell the world. We waited until Christmas Day to tell our family and on New Year’s <a href="">Eve</a> to tell our friends. All doctor appointments went well and we had no issues. I had 4 other close friends also pregnant at the same time. I was the last one due. I was due in August. It really was the happiest time of our lives. We had a gender reveal party and were told it was a girl. Then a month later went in for our 20 week appointment and they found no heartbeat 💗. I still can’t believe it. It’s the hardest thing to accept and go through. We broke down in the office. I felt so bad for my husband and I didn’t know what to do. I felt like I did something to cause this. What did I do? That night I went Into the hospital to deliver our baby. It’s the most heartbreaking feeling knowing you are delivering your dead baby. I was induced with meds and went through the delivery process. It took about 18 hrs to deliver our baby. I got an epidural about 4 hrs before delivery. I just couldn’t take the contractions anymore. My husband by my side the entire time. He did not leave the room. I eventually felt my water break and a couple hours later I felt our baby come out. I only had to actually push once because our baby was so small. Turns out he was a boy!!! We named him David jr after my husband. We did hold him and spent time with him. Then we had to sign paperwork and decide if he would be buried or cremated. I couldn’t imagine going home without our son. I kept thinking of David jr and why did this happen and praying for a miracle that he would be alive and well and that this was just a big giant nightmare. To this day I’m kind of in shock. We had a lantern release at the lake in memory of our son with our family and friends. We think about him every day and talk about him. He looked just like my husband. We love him❤️. We will never forget him. He was beautiful and perfect. Mommy and daddy will always love you David jr. 💙
