Hi everyone. I lost my son, Francis, this week. On 6/1 I started to feel contractions at 7:30pm and baby Francis was born just before 11pm at 25 weeks, 4 days. It all happened very fast with no explanation. We are not sure why he decided he needed to get out. He spent about 43 hours in the nicu, but sadly yesterday he wasn’t able to pull through. He had bleeding in his brain and his lungs and we were brought to say goodbye to him.
I’m in total shock. This was my first pregnancy and until Wednesday night everything had been incredibly easy. No red flags. So heartbroken for my little boy, for myself and for my husband. I lost my dad suddenly 9 months ago and had just started to feel closer to my normal self. I am so daunted by the thought of grieving from day 1 all over again. It’s exhausting to think about. I welcome all advice from anyone who’s faced similar circumstances.
