My Beautiful Baby 13 Weeks
- Isaiahs Mom: For those who are confused: This is a miscarriage that happened at 13 weeks of pregnancy (the last week of the first trimester).
Information, FAQ, and translations:
Meet my baby who died when I was 13 weeks pregnant. These are actual photos that were taken of him the day after he was delivered. This is also my story about how I and my community responded to miscarriage. For those who have a hard time believing that this is a real baby at 13 weeks, please look at medical documentation, medical drawings, and other photos on the Internet that women have shared of their miscarried babies. Perhaps you can learn more about the development of a baby in the womb.
"How did he die? Why is the baby so small?" This is a miscarriage that happened during the last week of the first trimester of pregnancy. He was a perfectly normal baby. There was another medical condition during the pregnancy that caused his death (unpreventable and untreatable).
"How did you know he was a boy?" All the parts were there. It was clear that he was a boy. Later on a medical test confirmed that he was a "normal baby boy." Ultrasound machines are unable to detect the gender until around 17-20 weeks, and that is why many parents do not know the gender until then.
"Why does he look shiny?" At this stage, the skin is a different texture from your skin or a newborn's skin. It is smooth and even sticky. Remember that babies are submerged in water for the entire 9 months of the pregnancy. I am no expert on fetal skin development, but it makes sense to me that the skin would be more compatible with being continuously underwater. Also, we kept Isaiah in a solution of saline (salt water) so that his body would stay well preserved until burial. The shininess comes from the fact that the skin was hydrated from being submerged in water, combined with the fact that it is a very smooth texture.
"Why does he have teeth?" He did not have teeth. The photo at 1:13 shows him underwater, and what you are seeing in his mouth is tissue. His skin in his mouth was a little loose, and the water made that apparent. We put him in a saline solution (salt water) in order to preserve his body until burial.
"How did the hospital allow you to hold the baby or take him home?" I delivered Isaiah at home with the assistance of a midwife. I was under the supervision of an obstetrician and nurse-midwife, and I did this with their knowledge and approval. Both my husband and I wanted to be respectful to Isaiah's body and give him a burial. We wanted to try to have him at home if possible because we did not want to take the risk of any hospital staff being disrespectful of our wishes. (Disclaimer: I am sharing this experience for educational purposes only. This is not medical advice. We also knew that there was a chance that I might need to deliver in the hospital or have a D&C rather than deliver more naturally, and we were accepting of that.) From hearing and reading other women's stories, it sounds like in some cases hospitals allow mothers to hold their miscarried baby and take their baby home, if they choose. I do not know how common that practice is, but I hope that it will eventually be mainstream to offer this option to women.
"Where is the umbilical cord?" The umbilical cord was cut by the midwife and discarded. When people ask this, they are probably wondering about the umbilical stump. At this stage, the umbilical stump is much lower on the belly than you would expect. You would need to look at photos of other miscarried babies at this stage to see this. When we took the photos of Isaiah, I purposely covered his genitals and umbilical stump with his legs and feet. I'd had a previous loss at 15 weeks in which the umbilical stump clearly showed in the photos. For Isaiah, I decided that I wanted it covered. I "clothed" him with his legs and feet. At the time, the photos were only for me– not for anyone else. I never thought I would later decide to share the photos with the world, and I never could have guessed that in the future someone would have wanted to see his umbilical stump.
