    Hey guys, please keep one of my employees in your hearts and minds today. She unknowingly carried a baby who had died for about a week before it was discovered - even during her baby shower. She then had to wait three days to get her blood pressure down before it was safe to give birth, all along knowing the baby would be a stillborn. I don't usually get wound up in these types of things, but this one has hit our entire staff pretty hard. We were all looking forward to her little one, and as some of you may know, my wife and I are trying very hard to get pregnant while overcoming some obstacles. So this one is hitting home a bit (and I also have five younger brothers and a sister). Then today they brought the memory box with the baby's footprint and lock of hair, next to her picture they took before the burial. Tough.

    Please think of her and, again, keep her in your thoughts.

    At first when I saw your name as the poster..I thought "Oh no!".....I am somewhat relieved that it wasnt you and the wife directly.....but I am still saddened by this.

    She and all those affected are in my thoughts and prayers.

    My best bud & his wife had the exact same thing happen to them last year.

    The only difference is that the baby passed away early on the morning she was supposed to give birth, so they knew it was going to be stillborn when delivered later that evening.

    Very very tough event to go through, but it's been almost a year now & they haven't let it bring them down too much or dissuade them from trying again. They just think of her as their little angel watching over them.

    I'm not a religious guy by any means, but I really like the sound of that.


    Deepest sympathies for your friend.

    That sucks:( . My grandparent's 2nd child died shortly after birth. While not exactly like this situation, it was still devastating to them.

    Sorry man I probably should have titled it a little better! Thank you for your concern, however. We are still trying and waiting for this month to end to see where we stand. You know I will keep you informed...


    And thank you guys for all your support. My primary reason for posting on here is to vent and get it off my chest. Being a property manager over 35+ employees, I have to be a counselor of sorts for them, and I needed to vent because I was starting to get affected after a few days of dealing with the situation, hospital, etc. However, nothing like what this young lady is going through.

    I will most certainly pass along the thoughts and prayers of everyone who posted in here to the family. Thanks again guys!

    My deepest condolences to your coworker's family. It has to be one of the hardest thing to go through for anyone.
