we lost the baby.

Photobucket
We lost our sweet angel baby at 12 weeks. 

Looking at the little muffin in the sonogram with no heartbeat today was heart.wrenching…
it actually hurt even worse than I could have imagined. 

I am having surgery tomorrow to “deliver” our sweet little one. 

And our roadtrip to California is postponed a few weeks now. 
I may not be good at responding to emails for a bit. Just apologizing ahead of time :). 


You know I have cried many tears today for this loss. Just knowing that a little angel is gone…a little person that no matter how small or young..it’s still our baby


I told Chris today that I can’t wait to hug him or her in heaven someday. 

I wrote this this morning before i left for the doctor:
I was just sitting here reading through comments and emails from all of you and wanted to say, with tears in my eyes…thank you. Thank you for making me smile and for making me cry thankful, joyful tears.

Thank you for loving me and for wanting to read my story.

Thank you for wanting to share with me the joys and the hardships. Thank you for being my outlet, my special place. What a place of blessings. And peace.

I love each of you. Thank you.

    You are absolutely right no matter how small that child is still your baby. Don't ever let anyone tell you different.

    I am new to your blog and love your sweet family. I am so sorry about the baby. My daughter lost a baby at 12 weeks as well. She tried the pills to make her naturally deliver. That was terrible and didn't work and she had to have the surgery as an emergency SO I am glad that you are having the surgery right away. It is so sad…..and again so sorry.

    I am so so sorry for your loss. I know what you are going through. My second miscarriage was discovered at 12 weeks. I naturally miscarried at 13 weeks. Just remember God has a plan. Every time I look at my beautiful daughter I remember that. I have three angel babies πŸ™ Everything happens for a reason and always works out for the best. Grieve for your loss. Get mad, because it isn't fair. When the time is right though, you will hold another baby in your arms. Your faith will get you through.

    Oh Casey! My heart is aching and breaking for you.
    My very first pregnancy ended in a missed miscarriage at 12.5 weeks.
    That was almost 9 years ago and it still affects me today.
    I think it always will.
    But I can tell you that the Lord has woven a beautiful tapestry from that pain and heartache.
    Something so precious that I would never take it back.
    Many hugs and prayers to you.

    Casey—I do not even have any kind of right words right now because I do not have babies and therefore could never fully comprehend your loss.

    But I just want you to know that I have SO MUCH love for you and I am here if ever you need it. You have been SO THERE for me through my hard times and I want to be able to be that for you also!

    You should also connect with Jessi from NaptimeDiaries {let me know if you need her info} as she experienced the same loss not long ago. I think you two could really comfort each other.

    Love you.

    I am SO sorry. I have tears in my eyes because I can't imagine the hurt you must feel… I'm nearing the tail end of my pregnancy, but my baby is just as important & precious to me now as she was at 3 months and even as soon as I found out I was pregnant… so, the fact that yours was just 12 weeks means absolutely nothing when it comes to a mother's deep love for an unborn child…I hope time softens the blow & that your future will include another opportunity at bearing a precious little baby. Much love & hugs…

I just wrote about in on my blog recently, called "Remembering Our Precious Baby". The flood of all the thoughts about the hopes and dreams about baby were the hardest when we first found out. Driving home was hard. I can't wait to see my baby in heaven.

    It is hard when you lose your little one, but he is not lost. You will see him or her again. You will get to see him and hug him when your journey is over here. I know this because I too have had losses. But they are never really lost. God knows exactly where they are.

    Casey & Chris, Tears immediately came to my eyes when I read your tweet. I know you don't know me but you have still opened your hearts to me and given me so much inspiration and hope. Your sweet baby may not have been able to make an appearance here on earth but they definitely made one on your hearts (and most of your followers' hearts too). Your baby lived in a family that has love pouring out of it in abundance and will be taking that love to heaven and watching over you as your sweet angel.
    My heart and prayers go out to you.

    Sweet mama-what a hard thing to experience. It's not just the loss of a baby, but of a future you had hope to have and see grow in front of you. I'm sorry and wish you some moments of peace amidst the pain. I will say baby wiegand's name to our Kansas wind, taking it through all of God's creation in remembrance.

    i am so sorry to hear this. i also lost a baby in may of this year. i was 16 weeks, and also had a d&c, which was very emotional for me. i've blogged a bit about my journey/healing at http://www.registeredmomma.com i would also like to recommend the song Glory Baby by Watermark. it brought so much healing to me. we played it at our baby's memorial service. (we were able to get our little one from the hospital after the d&c and bury it. this was also very healing… being able to see it and bury it where we wanted. helped to bring closure.) you're in my prayers. it's such a hard thing to go through. hugs to you.

    I'm very sorry for your loss. No words can really comfort right now, but our sweet Father can. I experienced the loss of our 2nd baby in Jan, but I was much earlier than you. I never thought I'd cry so much for someone I'd never met! These words really helped me through…

    5Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; 6 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:5-7

    My favorite part is "the Lord is at hand." He's always at work and in control. My prayers are with you.

    I've only been reading your blog for a week now, but I wanted to leave a comment that I'm sorry for the pain and loss that you're going through. As a mom. As a woman. As a friend to others who've lost their babies. A life is a precious thing to be celebrated and a precious thing to be mourned over after loss. At not easy. I'm glad that you know the redeeming power of Jesus love and comfort, may it show up for you and your family big time right now.

    I know your the heartache of a miscarriage. I too lost my little one at 12 weeks. Although time will heal, know that your body did all that it could and you should mourn your family's loss. I miscarried on my pregnancy so it was extremely heartbreaking for our families. Find strength within yourself, your family and your supporters of your amazing blog. A beautiful life is one that is shared and loved. Share in the memory of your lost little one.

    Much love to you and your family,

    I lost a little one 23 months ago. It hurt so much and I cried for days. Everyone said, "everything happens for a reason," and "God always has a plan." I hated those words. I didn't want to think about there being a plan that would cause me pain. A month after we lost our first baby, I found out I was pregnant again. Eight weeks into the second pregnancy, I found out I was carrying twins. When I look at my little daughters now, I have no doubt that God had a plan. He needed that first little baby in heaven. And he needed my little girls to be here on earth with me.

    Trust in God. He always has a plan. There is a reason for everything. I hope that you heal quickly and that you're able to find peace in this hard time.

    Casey, I am sorry that for your loss…I know your pain all to well. I believe that God is good and he will get you and your family through this difficult time. I lost sweet babies too, but I truly believe that everything happens for a reason, I would never have met my darling baby boy Landon. So where there is pain, the Lord will deliver new blessings. We will meet our babies one day. stay strong. many prayers headed your way. Anna

    Casey (and Chris), I am a new follower to your blog and have intended to email you multiple times throughout the past couple of weeks to let you know how touched I have been by the story God has given you to share. With that now said, I trust that this is a vital moment in that story! where God is doing something in and though your family to glorify Himself. I am deeply sorry for your loss and tonight will be sure to petition our Father for grace and peace to fall on your home. Thank you for allowing so many women to see your heart (even when its broken), believe me when I say it is beautiful. Love, Kristen

    I have never commented on your blog before and I am a somewhat recent follower. I personally hate it when people tell say they are sorry for your loss, because in my mind I can't possibly tell them it's okay because it isn't okay. But I will say that this has happened for a reason and even though the little one was only here for 12 weeks, they will be with you forever. My heart aches when I see people grieve because I know it is a tough and grueling process, but one day things will start to feel "normal" again and it will not be so hard. I hope that the pain eases soon and that you can find peace with this. You have a beautiful family and I pray that you all will gain strength from this.

    Casey,

    Your message came across my phone, and my stomach sank. I immediately got on my laptop, hoping some of the message was wrong, or cut off. I am typing this with tears in my eyes, I am so sorry. I feel sick. I lost an angel baby too..and I hate knowing someone that I care about (you) has endured that loss too. I have come to think of your blog, your daily entries of your life & family as my friend. Just know that I am thinking of you and your family, and I wish I could give you a hug. You are in my prayers. Courtney

    I know there is nothing that any of us can say right now to make the pain go away or to make the situation any better. Just know that there are many of us praying for you and there are many of us who have experienced similar losses.

    I do want to give this to you. Someone wrote it to me after I lost our first baby girl: "Your baby has known only the most wonderful comfort of this world. The only world she knew here on earth was the warm, protective place from within you. She heard your voice, and was rocked to sleep by your movement. She was kept warm by your body, and was sheltered from all harm. When it was time for her to leave you, she knew no pain, no fear, no sadness. She went straight into her Savior's arms where she is warm and protected. She hears His voice, and is rocked to sleep by His movement. He keeps her warm, and shelter's her from all harm. She will never know pain, or fear, or sadness. She has only known the two most wonderful places, yours and His…"

    1 Peter 5:7
    Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.

    Psalm 46:1-2
    God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea.

    Psalm 55:22
    Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall.

    Psalm 71:20-21
    Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth you will again bring me up. You will increase my honor and comfort me once again.

    Nothing is more comforting than God's Word at a time like this. I wish I knew what to say, but I'm sure you've heard all the cliches already. Just know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. And that precious little baby is looking down on you from Heaven smiling. He or she is so proud that you are his/her mommy. That baby is so lucky to call you all his/her family. And as sad as it is that you will never know your baby on this earth, he or she will never have to know that pain in this world that comes along with sin. He or she will live forever in the glory of God, waiting to be with you once again. :]

    Again, my thoughts, prayers, and love are with you and your family during this time of loss.

    I am so very sorry. It is such a hard, totally sucky thing to lose your baby. My heart and my tears are with you. I suffered through two miscarriages between my first and second babies, and it was a hard road. My bloggie friend Jessi recently shared a post on her own loss, and in that post she shared a letter from a friend of hers which really comforted me, even years after my own miscarriages.

    Casey, I'm so sorry, which I know doesn't help dull the pain. Take comfort that you will get to hold your little one at some point. The Lord is merciful and sometimes has a greater work on the other side for these sweet little spirits. I am truley sorry though, I went through this myself for 2 1/2 years losing 7 pregnancies, all had little heart beats and where little people we were excited to have in our family, but the Lord had a greater plan for them. I promise it will stop hurting at some point, but don't be afraid to mourn there is healing in that and peace. Turn to the Savior and He will heal and love you. I came to know Him, truely KNOW HIM through that experience. It was hard but such a blessing, and I know i'll be with my little kiddo's again. Your in my prayers:)

    oooh Casey… My heart breaks for you. No one should have to feel the pain of the loss of a child. Thank goodness for the grace of our heavenly Father. Your sweet angel baby is in heaven rejoicing with Him. I know that doesn't make it any easier.

    I have never lost a child so I can't relate to the pain. But I can let you know that I'm praying for you and that you aren't alone. One of my sweet friends has been through this pain twice. She is such an inspiration to me. I thought you might find her blog helpful to you in this time of heartbreak.

    Casey, I cannot imagine your feelings of loss & sadness right now.
    The only reassuring words I can offer is just knowing that your little baby is safe with Jesus now, and you will meet him or her one day.
    Not sure if you have read the book Heaven is for real- but I encourage you to pick it up. It is an incredible story and it may comfort you in this time.

    Oh Case.. I am so so sorry to hear about your loss.
    I know the pain and how bad it hurts when you look at that screen and see a little babe with no heartbeat. We went through that exact experience October of 08 with our first baby.
    I had to have that surgery the following day as well.
    PLEASE contact me if you just want to talk and have your feelings validated. Some things you will feel in the days to come will not make sense to anyone unless they have gone through it.
    Love you girl and I am praying extra extra grace for you. I am weeping with you today.

    So sorry for your loss. I am not a momma but I have walked with a dear friend through this loss. There are no words other than to say "I'm sorry"…praying for you and your family as you grieve this sweet angel baby. May you find comfort and peace in the arms of those who love you deeply.

    Casey,

    I'm so heartbroken and devastated for you and your family's loss. Having said goodbye to three babies of my own, I know the pain and numbness that comes with such a great loss. I believe without a doubt that one day, your family with be reunited in the presence of God and you and Chris will be able to meet and love on this precious little one. My prayer is, that in the coming days and weeks, you might find peace in knowing that your baby is in the care of the almighty.

    Though I am positive you will hear tons of advice and opinions, one thing that really helped my husband and I as we dealt with losing our babies, was giving them a name. I don't know what is so powerful and healing about that, but it was for us.

    Praying that God's nearness will surround you.

    Grace and Peace,

    Sarah Miller

    I know I already left you a comment… I just wanted to say something more… As I was driving to today, I prayed for you! Then I just had this overwhelming feeling to tell you this…. God never designed it to be this way, to have loss, pain,suffering and sadness and death. That wasn't his orignal plan. His orignal plan was perfection, happiness, joy and…life. So many people wonder why God allows bad things to happen. All I know is the world the way it is, wasn't his plan, wasn't his intention. So know that the loss of your baby wasn't his plan, wasn't his intention. However, he can and will make something beautiful out of your loss. I am praying for you still as your going through this! May God Give you peace that passes ALL UNDERSTANDING!

    Casey,

    I am so sorry for you and Chris and the loss of your precious baby. No words can explain the somewhat unseen magnitude of the grief of miscarriage. I want you to know that we are praying for you down here in San Antonio – that grief is grief, that it is real, that not only did you lose your baby but all of the dreams you had (consciously or subconsciously) for this little one's life.

    My heart hurts so much for you.

    We will continue praying for your health and for the healing of you and your family's hearts.

    -Amy

    Casey – another thought:

    (and this is a bit private, so I was going to e-mail you, but I cannot figure out how to do that, being rather technologically behind…)

    Something that can help, though I hesitate to use the word "help", but can aid families experiencing this kind of loss, is to embrace some sort of ritual or ceremony that gives tangible expression to your feelings, to your grief.

    Perhaps you guys have already thought of some of those things.

    Anyhow. My husband and I experienced this many years ago when our oldest had just turned one and I remember that being able to acknowledge our sadness through our own homemade ceremony was integral to our ability to process the tragedy.

    You are in our thoughts.

I wish I had some comforting words for you … but I don't … there just are not any for a time like this. I send hugs and prayers. We created a video recently for the baby we lost at 12 weeks in May … you can see it here:

I can promise that you will get through it. God will carry you through. Just lean of him. It's ok not to be strong and it's ok to feel whatever you need to feel. God loves you and he has a plan. Hang in there, you will get through.

    With over 300 comments on this one post, I hesitate to even add mine to the list. I came to visit after seeing you on LMM's facebook page. The tab entitled "Loss and heartache" caught my eye. I have walked in your shoes. My husband and I lost two sweet babies after giving birth to our daughter. People so often don't understand unless they have been there. I got a lot of "Well, you still have Lydia" and "You'll be fine" and "Just be happy that you have a daughter already. So many people don't ever have any children". People have good intentions, but they can often be very insensitive to the pain. Cry, scream, hug your babies, hug your hubby, cry together, pray, do whatever you need to do for you. God was the only thing that got me through. There is a peace that passes all understanding in God. I will keep you in my prayers. Take care.

And my heart still hurts for my babies, when I think about them, I miss them, and I wonder about who they would be today. I know they are happy and safe in Heaven, and I have come to accept that. But every once in a while I still shed some tears for them. I wish I could give you big hugs! You and your precious family will be in my prayers.

    Dear Casey,

    I found out about your loss from your post on Shine. Please let me say I am so sorry and I absolutely know your pain. My husband and I lost our first baby at 13 weeks…and it was the most painful of experiences. God has blessed us with two beautiful children (a girl and a boy) but I still think of my angel that I never got the baby I still dream of and can't wait to meet in the presence of my Heavenly Father. Praying for your healing and comfort in the coming weeks and months. That you are surrounded by love and grace. Blessings sweet girl.

    I do, however, wish I could jump in the car this very moment and drive to Texas to give you a huge hug. Mama heart to mama heart, friend to friend, sister to sister.
    But for now, I send you love and prayers from way up north, hoping that they be a small seed of joy.
    All my love to you, your hubs and your 3 sweet babies.

    Casey, my heart breaks for you and your family. I lost our baby at 11 wks, just over a month ago. Reading your post brought me to tears once again, reliving the pain we went through. As you little one was, our baby was so precious to us. We are sad we couldn't meet them in this lifetime. My hearts aches for another baby and I hope you too will be able to have another also! Our God is a good God!

    HUGS!

    I stumbled on this post looking for a post on some birthday party ideas I saw a while ago. I am a brand new follower of this blog.
    I am crying for you right now. I have gone through this pain and would not wish this on anybody. I will be praying for you and your family that God puts his arms around you and that you feel Him there.

    Thanks for writing about this. I couldn't when it happened to me until several months later. But I wrote about it here. http://amandaconley.blogspot.com/2010/07/what-its-like-to-be-thrown-for-loop.html
    Don't read it if it's too soon. I still find myself feeling really vulnerable about writing stuff online… and I don't want to make you sad or anything. But I just want you to know that I completely relate.
