The worst part of a fetal demise... not the moment when you have to tell the mom you can't find a heartbeat.

It's the moment right before delivery, where everyone in the room is holding their breath, in the hopes that the baby will take one of his own.

Where everyone thinks, just for a second, "Maybe we were wrong. Maybe he'll come out pink and screaming, and we'll all cry happy tears."

But we weren't wrong. And he doesn't. And the tears are never happy.
