  • my friend and her baby

    I just talked to a friend of mine. Her water broke on Sunday. She is only 23 weeks along. Shes not due till September.

    Right now everything is fine, but its too soon for the baby. She has already lost one baby. It would just break my heart in two if she lost this one too.

    She had just noticed last week that she had her first stretch marks and she was so excited. They had also found out that its a boy.

    I really didnt know what to say when I talked to her today. Another friend and I just ordred flowers for her.

    Please pray for my friend and her baby!

          Countrygirl--
          I hope everything is going to be ok with her- please keep us posted. My nephew was born at 24 weeks old- weighing 1 lb. (he is now 4-1/2 years old and doing great. So they do make it and live a normal life.)

                Sending you out big big prayers. I also leaked out nearly all my fluid dyring my pregnancy. They tried to to an ameo at 7 1/2 months and could not get any fluid. at that time Ash was 3lbs an some odd ounces during the ultra sound. I deliverd a perfectly health 5 lb 6 ounce girl.
                I hope that every thing is ok, and maybe just keep her off her feet and bed rest the rest of the trimester.

                  Thank you for letting us know so we can pray for them. I am sure she is very scared right now and they need all the prayers they can get. I pray that she and the baby are okay. Please let us know when you hear something.

                    This is a sad day for me. I ran into someone that is closer to my friend than I am yesterday. She told me that the baby didnt make it. This morning, I woke up to find the following email from my friend:

                    Bain Michael Willoughby was born shortly after 4:00 p.m. on April 12 and passed away shortly after 6:00 p.m. the same day. We were blessed with two hours of time with him and most of my family was present for the birth. He was one pound eight ounces and 17 inches long. Its so sad, but I'm doing okay considering the circumstances. Casey has been very supportive and I couldn't ask for a better husband in my time of need.

                    Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.


                    They are going to hold private services on Monday. Please continue to pray for her and her family. Thank you.

                        I have been diagnoised for 6 1/2 years now. I have taken a long break from the ICN but really miss helping out my fellow IC patients and want to get back into posting.
                        1st hydro 4/07 showed no visible signs of IC but tons of mast cells in all my biopsy samples which did prove IC.
                        2nd hydro 4/13/09 showed dark purple glomerulations and I had a capacity of 450 cc's. This hydro proved that my IC had progressed.
                        I have tried every oral medication as well as rescue instills and DMSO.

                        I have been lucky enough to see Dr Hanno, the top IC specialist in PA who has told me due to the fact that I have not responded to any "standard" treatments that I have a severe, end stage case of IC with a horrible quality of life (didn't have to tell me that last part!)
