Kinley Lundquist

We were introduced to Alexandra's House when we lost our daughter, Kinley, unexpectedly in March 2010. My pregnancy was going well and I had reached 27 weeks. I woke up on a Monday morning and realized she had not woke me in the night by kicking me. She was very active, especially at night. I went to work and noticed little to no movement, so I called my doctor and they asked me to go to the hospital for monitoring. They monitored her heartbeat for an hour, it was good and strong, but I still wasn't feeling her move. They sent me home and agreed to do a follow-up ultrasound the next day. When we went in for the ultrasound, there was no heartbeat. I felt as if my whole world crashed down around me. I went in to be induced that evening and we had Kinley at 9:58am on March 24th. She was beautiful, looking just like her big brother. I attend the monthly unexpected loss group at Alexandra's House and find it so helpful. It's so encouraging to be surrounded by other parents that know how I'm feeling.
