the LOST ones


Brayden Lee Drayton Hunt. Born W/ His Wings On August 18, 2009. 30 Weeks Along.

Brayden was a BIG surprise. LOL. I and his daddy were 28. Our 2 girls, MyKenna, 10, and Leah, 6, were also very excited. LOL. I found out in March, 2009, we were pregnant. Now, I was due on October 26, 2009. I was 8 1/2 weeks when I found out. I wasn't sick or anything, just missed my period again, for the 2nd time. All my scans went well, nothing wrong. On June 4, 2009, I was about 19 1/2 weeks when I learned we were having a BOY!! Yay!! LOL. Anyways, my scan at 6 months along on July 23, 2009, showed our boy may have little fluid in my womb, but they said to relax about it, as it was nothing to worry about, becuase it was very slight. We went on home, relaxing. We watched a movie that night. My husband, daughters, and I talked about the baby things we were going to get the next day for baby shopping. We had a baby shower August 14th. I was a little over 6 1/2 months along. About 27-29 1/2 weeks or so. Anyways, I got a car seat, a stroller, and a swing, some clothes, lots of clothes I should say, LOL, and a pack 'n' play, a very fancy, nice, and expensive one. All the baby furniture, like the stroller/car seat combo, pack 'n' play, and the swing were all from GRACO. Very expensive, fancy brand. Our girls were spoiled too. On August 17th at 11 pm, I went into the shower, and 10 minutes into the shower, I felt like I peed myself, so looked down, and it was all BLOOD. I panicked, and YELLED for Jayden. He ran in, and helped me get cleaned up, get dressed, dried, etc, etc, and then we grabbed the phone and called my mom, told her everything, and asked if she could watch the girls. She goes over the phone: "Yes, I wil. Go! GO! I'll be there in 5 minutes!" Thank goodness she lived close, because I was bleeding yet, but not as much, but I had horrible cramping and pains. By 11:20, grammy arrived, and off we went. Grandma slept in our room. At 11:49 PM 8/17/09, we arrived at the hospital, got admitted, and waited for the ob/gyn to get in. At 12:06 AM on August 18, 2009, the ob/gyn got in. Finally. She apoligized for the wait, we said it was ok, and told her what was up. She got a scan machine, and did an ultrasound. We saw our little boy. She said he wasn't moving, and she could not locate a heartbeat. She called for Dr. Jones, and he tried, along with 3 other RN nurses. They all couldn't find it. They apoligized, and said: "We're so sorry, but your baby boy is not moving, and his little heart is not beating. We're so sorry, but he's gone. We're so sorry." They hugged us as we cried. They induced me at 12:20 AM 8-18-09. I waited and waited. Nothing. Finally at 1:36 AM my water finally broke. By 2:38, I was fully dialated. Finally, at 2:42 AM on August 18, 2009, our baby boy was born with his wings. He was still-born, born sleeping. We cried as they handed him to us. They said they were so sorry and hugged us. He weighed 3 lbs. 9 oz. 18 inches. He was so goregous. x0x0x0. At 8:20 AM, the girls came with grandma to meet Brayden. They loved him, hugged him, held him, kissed him, and cried. We cried too. We all held him and cried, kissed, hugged him too. And, at 8:30 AM, the nurse took him away from us. We all wished we could say: "Give us back our baby!" But, we couldn't. He was gone, and we love and miss him so much. On August 21, 2009, we had his service. It was heartbreaking. His burial was at 2:30 PM, after a 4 1/2 hour visitation. His burial was 12 minutes or so, and every second it got worse and worse, and still does. That pain just won't go away until we hold him again.
