    Ruptured Uterus
    Althea071 posted:
    I to had a ruptures uterus my son would have been 3years 1month old now he lived for one day. He died from lack of oxygen. I would love to have another baby but my husband is really scared for me. The doctors were able to save my uterus, but he's not willing to take that chance. I had my baby cremated and still have him boxed and on the shelf. he wants me to set him free over the sea but i just cant let him go. I am sort of over him, but i just cant let my baby boy go. I say ladies let keep the faith lots of luck to us all.

    I experienced a uterine rupture during labor with my son this past October. The rupture almost cost me my life though the doctor did save my uterus. My son survived for only 18 days and passed away in my arms. I heard a saying the other day that I felt applied, "we never get over the loss, we just get through it". My son died from profound brain damage due to lack of oxygen during birth. My husband and I had been hoping for, dreaming of & praying about having him for six long years of battling infertility. Just like you, I'm wanting to have another child. My husband, like yours, is extremely afraid of going through such a traumatic event again. I'm seeking help from a high risk specialist that is two hours away. I see this physician next week and I'm praying that I will be able to have another child though he/she will never fill the void I feel for the son that I lost. As for your situation, hopefully your husband respects that you can't let go yet. Don't let go until you are ready or you will regret that and possibly resent your husband for urging you to do so. Whatever you do, plan for and do it together as a couple. On a side note, men just handle things so differently that women. I pray that you find what you are desiring whether it be a safe pregnancy or just coming to terms and peace with the death of yours son. I understand your pain and anguish as our situations are on a parallel. May God bless you with peace & comfort.
