#57773 - 09/11/05 09:54 AM baby that didn't make it:(

I went to check on my gliders this morning and my glider sugar was acting strange, so I watched her for a while and she was on a shelf that has a plastic house on it, she was going around in circles and licking her self. then after a while she went into her pouch and stayed there for a while.
When she came out she went on top of her house and while up there she left a new baby that had died <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" /> This is the first time that she is going tobe a mom, So I don't know what went wrong. She is back in her pouch still moving around so I am still hoping that there will be another baby, but at the same time I am very sad... Has this happened to others? I am going to post two pictures that I took of the baby, for learning and knowing. Streetmom1

So sorry this little one did not make it. This does happen on occassion and we are not sure why, but Nature does know best. It is very possible there is another one by the sounds of it.

Thanks for posting the pictures, as I know it had to be difficult to take them.

I am now going to move this post to Real Stories.

If you want to know what a person is like, watch how he treats others.

You'll never know what the outcome is if you don't step up and try.

I am sorry this wee one didnt make it. I am keeping my fingers crossed for you that you have another healthy baby on the way.

So sorry for your loss...I too just lost a baby...but my baby was aten after about 4 or 5 days out of pouch <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" /> I guess the parents know best. Posting the pics is a great learning experience, I never seen something that small <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" /> I didnt take photos of my baby...after the parents ate it there was only a skeleton remaining. From what I've read 1st time moms will often do that, but it dont make it any easier I know. Hopefully they will have another one. Take care.
