we lost the baby.

August 31, 2011

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.

  16. I am so very sorry for your loss. I hate that you are experiencing something no parent should ever have to.

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

  29. 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.

  30. My heart hearts for you Casey. I don't even have words to say that would comfort you. You and your family have all my thoughts right now. You are so strong for letting all of us into your lives like you do. You will get through this, I have faith and I know you do too.

  35. 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 :( 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.

  36. Oh Casey, I am so sorry :( I can only imagine what you are going through. But I DO know that you will see your sweet angel baby again someday soon. Then that baby will be yours to hold forever :)

  42. 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.

  44. 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.

  48. Oh Casey I am sitting here with a lump in my throat and tears rolling down my check. I can't imagine what you are going through.

    I pray you find peace and although it may be difficult to imagine or understand God has a plan and there is a reason this happened, a reason far beyond what we can understand here on earth.

    Sending love and prays to the Wiegand family!

  51. "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows." - 2 Corinthians 1:3-5

  59. Sweet girl, I'm so sad to hear the loss of your precious little one. Praying for you.
    I went through the same thing at 11 weeks a few years ago, sweet angels. My heart aches for you. I hope you can release your feelings through your beautiful artwork & a momentum to this sweet angel.

    ReplyDelete
  60. 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...

  68. Oh Casey I'm so sorry to hear about baby!!! I know the devastation of a missed miscarriage. I had one at 11-1/2 weeks 7 years ago. 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.

    {{{ Hugs }}} to you Casey and prayers for your family.

  78. 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.

  84. 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.
    Love,
    Kristen

  106. 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 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.

  116. 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.

  121. 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.

  122. 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,
    Lillian

  130. 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.

And He also knows the reasons, and the answers, and the outcome. Praying for you friend <3

  147. Casey and Chris,
    We, here in Cali, are praying for you too...knowing tomorrow holds a difficult farewell. May the Father bless you with His supernatural arms around you with gentle comfort. Be assured that He is a Daddy who knows what it is like to lose a Son. And He is the One who conquered death and gives new life...the grave could not hold His Son!! He will walk this valley with you...Psalm 23, Isaiah 40:11. Looking forward to meeting you in a few weeks.

  152. I'm so sorry for your loss. I remember how hard it was for all of our family when my brother & my sister-in-law-to-be lost their baby.

    Envelope yourself in the love and strength of your family & friends and know that others are keeping you in their thoughts. You are only given what you can bear-even when you wish it wouldn't be so much.

    So many positive & loving thoughts to you and your family.

  156. Dear Casey,
    I am so sorry to hear that you lost your little angel. I believe that we all come here for a purpose; to prove ourselves worthy to return back to God. Your little baby was so perfect that he or she was already ready to return back to God, he or she had already proved itself worthy in heaven. Just remember that you will be able to see that darling perfect child of yours again one day :). I will be praying for you and your family.

We will meet our babies one day. stay strong. many prayers headed your way. Anna

  182. 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

  185. oh casey, i am so heartbroken for you and your sweet little family. a close friend of mine recently went through a similar situation, and i know how hard it is. i will be praying for you often, especially tomorrow.

    ReplyDelete
  186. 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.

  187. 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

  188. 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..."
