Christopher James March 27, 2014 - September 12, 2018

Age: 9 months, 5 days

March 27, 2014 is the day my life came crashing down before my eyes. March 26th, I started out with pelvic pain (but didn’t think anything of it because I had gone to early labor to be checked out on March 24th and they said it was “indigestion”). It was my first pregnancy. The pain started at around 10:45am. I took Tylenol in hopes that it would ease up. I decided not to call the doctor’s office this day because it took forever for them to get back to me two days prior. The Thursday morning, March 27th, I wake up still hurting. I didn’t realize it at the time, but my water started leaking before I left my house to go to the doctor’s office. I dropped my mom to work, not telling her that I felt a gush on the way. I go to the doctor’s office, feeling gushing the entire way there. I try to get out of the car. Every time I attempt to stand up, I feel a gush. It took about 10 minutes before I am able to get out of the car. I finally get out. They rush me to the back. The nurse checks me. I am 6cm dilated. So, I realize that the day before at 10:45am is when my labor began. I was in labor for 22 hours without even knowing it. I had no idea what labor pains felt like. 7 hours after being at the hospital, I feel my angel fall out of me. I know I saw his chest rise and fall, but everyone tells me I imagined it.

    I am so sorry, Love. He is so beautiful. I feel your pain, even years out. My babygirl, Empress, went home some time between Sept 30, 2016 – Oct 2, 2016. Her birthday is Oct 4, 2016. Sis, I am here WHENEVER you feel the need to talk or cry to someone. We are sisters in loss. We can be each others brace in this journey.
