We found out on January 23rd that our baby had no heartbeat.
These last few weeks of waiting have been so hard. Last Thursday I finally started seeing signs that my body had realized what happened and was doing what it needed to do. In the afternoon on valentine's day I went into labor and it was the same as I remember labor being with my girls. It took about 6 hours of contractions and 10 minutes after midnight it was finally over. I got to hold my baby and look at the tiny hands and feet and say goodbye. Now I can heal and we can move on and prepare for our next challenge as Eric gets ready to deploy again.
