    On Saturday 4/6/16 we had our baby girl at 26 +5 weeks, her name is Isabelle, she weighed 1Ibs 3. She was born sleeping.

    We're on holiday in north Devon and on Friday 3/6/16 I got cramping for a few hours, I thought it was ligament stretching, but then I had a slight bleed. After calling my midwife and the local hospital I was advised to come in. On being assessed they couldn't find a heartbeat for the baby so they scanned me and we found that our baby wasn't moving. We had lost it (I say 'it' because at the time we didn't know what the gender was). +3 protein was found in my urine and my blood pressure was through the roof, I had severe preeclampsia. I went down hill very quickly. I was shivering, I developed an infection and I had started getting septicemia. They tried to induce labour with a course of pessarys, they didn't work, so Saturday morning I was taken to theatre for a c section. I was numb, I can't remember thinking anything while I was lying there being put under general anathtetic. We met our baby that evening. Holding a sleeping baby that was never going to cry or smile or laugh was devastating.
    Each day is getting better but in still in hospital, going home is going to be a test.
    When we get home we've got to plan a funeral :(.
    Sorry about such a personal post.

    So sorry for your loss :-( Sweet Isabelle, sleep well.
    I know it's early days, but Sands are supposed to be a great support. Also know a charity called Little Fingers whose founders I know. Worth looking at.
    Take the time to rest and look after yourselves and don't apologise for talking so openly and honestly about your little girl. Xxxxx

    I am so so sorry Hun I am 5 weeks into this nightmare and I know your pain, it's like no other I have felt before. We lost our baby boy at 36 weeks and it changes your life. Do have a look on the sands forum and also try to go to a local support group as it does help to speak to others who are also feeling or felt your pain. The days do get slightly easier, I cry less most days but I do also have bad days but it is still very early for me also.

    Life is so unbelievably cruel at times, you will go through a lot of different emotions but just do whatever you need to do to get through each day

    Again I am so sorry you are going through this, you are not alone xx
