My name is Sevyn.
I’m 24 and married to my high school sweetheart; we have been married for a year and a half, and together for almost 10. In February of 2014, I discovered I was pregnant with our first child, who we later discovered was a perfectly healthy (and very active) little boy.
I had a completely normal, routine pregnancy until the very end. Our baby, who we decided to name Brock, passed away in utero as a result of a cord accident. He was five days overdue when we discovered he had passed, and was born at 41 weeks’ gestation on Thursday, October 23rd after a terrible 45-hour induction. We love him dearly and miss him every day.
This blog is primarily here for my own personal benefit; it’s a way for me to express the (sometimes bizarre) thoughts and feelings I have on my road to recovery. From time to time, I may also post videos, poems, or links to other blogs that speak to me in some facet or another.
If you have suffered a similar loss, my heart goes out to you – nobody should have to go through what we do, and I can only imagine your pain. However, I hope you can find some level of solace in knowing that other people know how you feel, and none of the things you are feeling in this difficult time are unusual or inappropriate. Maybe, by seeing just how scatterbrained and illogical I am, you will feel a little better about some of the ‘unseemly’ emotions you are experiencing.
Please, enjoy your stay, as much as is possible.
