11. The nurse and my supervising physician were very helpful and understanding.
This was the doctor's seventh or eighth fetal demise. He says they always knock you over, but after the first one, you're a little better prepared. He did say that it was really awful that my first delivery was also my first fetal demise. Bad luck.

That was the worst physical and emotional reaction I've ever had over a medical situation. I've been present at trauma deaths, and assisted in some really gnarly surgical procedures. Never batted an eye, or turned my stomach.

This one was much different...
