    Default My beautiful baby boy

    Yesterday I said hello and goodbye to the strongest little man I've ever met. We found out at our morph scan that our boy had some kind of skeletal dysplasia. They couldn't say which one but many of them involve a lifetime of pain and surgeries and we couldn't let him go through that. We waited for weeks as the scans got worse and sought different opinions, but to no avail.

    So our little man was born at 22 weeks yesterday. He lived for 3 hours and 5 minutes. Such a fighter. Handing him back and walking out that door was the hardest thing I have ever done. I miss him so much it hurts.

    How do I get through these days? Does this get any better? I have never felt so terrible in my life before.

    I can't even imagine what yesterday was like for you, holding that little boy in your arms, he really has been a fighter the whole 22 weeks. He must've inherited that trait from his mum, as you've shown nothing but strength and grace throughout this pregnancy. I'll be thinking of you and your little boy today xx

    I'm so so sorry for your loss. I can't imagine your pain. But you're an amazingly strong person for doing what you think was right for him. He will never know any pain now.
