Adalynn was conceived after my husband and I had a significant struggle with infertility which included 7 years of 4 failed fresh IVF cycles and 2 frozen cycles. After 6 transfers we finally got our first positive pregnancy test and we were so excited. After an uneventful pregnancy, Adalynn was breech and scheduled for a C-section on 09-28-15.
However, tragically just 3 days before her C-section, on 09-25-15, Adalynn was born sleeping after concerns of reduced fetal movement. Adalynn was born at 38+5 weeks with a head full of dark hair weighing in at 7lbs, 4oz. Adalynn died from a cord accident and was delivered with her cord around her neck.
Adalynn Peyton Bellard was not a pregnancy I lost, she is our baby we lost. She is the granddaughter, big sister, little sister, playmate, niece, and cousin that is missing from our daily lives. Every day we feel her absence and want the whole world to know who they are missing out on.
Adalynn was, and is, so loved and terribly missed. She will forever be a baby, and is forever my baby…and from this story of love, loss, and struggle Adalynn’s Attic was established. Adalynn’s Attic is a Rainbow Baby & Toddler Boutique established in memory of Adalynn Peyton Bellard. Adalynn’s story and her boutique promote awareness, break the silence surrounding stillbirth, educate expecting mothers on the importance of 3rd-trimester kick counts, and bring understanding to the love and loss that encompass Rainbow Babies. This is how Adalynn’s story is not over…”
