As we walked out of our last doctor's appointment, we were more than excited to meet our first born child. Afterall, we now had a date and time for our scheduled c-section: March 14, 2016 at 7:30am. A few days later, however, I realized that the baby had not been as active as they normally were throughout the day. I drove to the hospital that Friday, March 11th, to be monitored, as a way to both make sure the baby was okay and to ease my anxiety. After several attemps at trying to find a heart beat, the nurse brought a doctor in to do an ultrasound. After a few minutes, he said the worst four words any mother should ever have to hear: your baby is stillborn. Later that night, at 10:50pm, I gave birth via c-section to the most beautiful little boy and we named him Cameron Alexander. We were fortunate enough to spend the next 4 days with Cameron with the help of a cuddle cot, which was donated by Lydie's famliy. One of my nurses told us Lydie's story and suggested we consider participating in the Lydie's Loop event, as a way to find support while we grieved the loss of our son. That is what brought us to participate in this event last year and again this year.I miss you, Cameron. Until we meet again, my little bear.
