I am a discussion group leader in a MOPS (moms of preschoolers) group. One of the wonderful ladies in my group was due to have her 2nd baby this month. I got this yesterday from her sister:

I'm M's sister. M asked me to email you and let you know what
happened. M lost Kennedy on Sunday. She was scheduled to be induced tomorrow. M felt her move on Saturday night, but on Sunday she did not feel her moving, so
she went to the hospital. They hooked her up to a monitor and there was no
heartbeat. She had a c-section. They are not sure what happened to her, the cord
was not wrapped around her neck, there were no knots in the cord, and the fluid
was clear. She had an autopsy and it will take about a week and a half before we
get the results. She weighed 7 lbs 9 oz and was about 19" long. She is beautiful
and looks just like her big brother. M is scheduled to get out of the
hospital tomorrow. Anyway, I wanted to let you know and if you could please let
the rest of your MOPS group know. If you or anyone wants me to give M any
messages, please email me at adkf;aldjf;ajdflkj@al;

    Oh, Christie, that's just HORRIBLE. I can only imagine what emotions this causes for you, too. She must be devestated - what a sad, terrible tragedy.

    My heart goes out to that family.

  2. Horrible. Prayers for that poor family :( And an extra prayer for you too.
