I just posted this on Meg's blog. She will need all of our support now. Please go to her.
Saturday Meg started to feel unwell, as if she was having contractions, and went to the hospital. They examined her and told her that her cervix was fine and there were no contractions showing up on the monitor so she and D. went home. Later that night she felt worse, and the contractions started again.
This time, they didn't stop. She was readmitted into the hospital Saturday night and the doctors tried to stop her labour but they eventually had to remove her cerclage yesterday and she delivered her daughter soon after.
Her beautiful, much loved and much wanted daughter was stillborn at 22 weeks on Sunday September 23, 2007.
Meg is physically recovering and will be home sometime today. Her husband is taking very good care of her, but they are both devastated beyond words. They saw their daughter, held her, and took photos of her. It's all they have to remember her brief life. This is so so unfair after all they had done to ensure a safe pregnancy & delivery. There was truly nothing more they could do.
Meg and D. I'm grieving with you. You are not alone. You are loved.
