I've cried a thousand rivers, and it's not enough...

To be brutally honest, at this stage, I don't think it ever will be.

I had a doctor's appointment on Wednesday and they could not find the baby's heartbeat. Ultrasound confirmed that I had lost the child.

I got home from the hospital yesterday and DH and I are utterly devastated. This was our first, which turned out to be a boy instead of a girl as the sonogram tech had originally thought.

I lost him on Thursday, October 29, 2009 at 7:03 PM PDST. RIP little James Franklin Whitlow. So tiny and so perfect. I love you more than I can ever say!


Respectfully submitted,

I am so sorry for your loss, Cindy. There are no words for comfort but I'm thinking and praying for you & DH.

I've been in your shoes, twice before. Email me if you need someone to talk to.

Ah, honey, I am sorry for your loss. (hug)

I may do that. Right now I am so numb and raw and torn apart, it's all I can do to get out of bed.

The Hubmeister is the world's best ever, and I am soooooooo lucky I have him. If it wasn't for him, I don't know what I would do.

Found your blog today. It touched my heart and made me mourn for your loss. I don't know you but, I pray for God to give you strength. I pray for your heart and your husband's heart. Much love to you.

I'm sorry for your loss. I've been there 3 times myself, the most recent in August. It's heartbreaking. My thoughts are with you
