Hello,I was 36week pregnant with due on 25th May.On 11th may we went for routine check up baby was not responsing much , so dr suggested tripple doppler test. on 12th we again met dr with reports , In report "Polyhydramnios" mentioned dr. suggested instead of waiting for normal delivery will have c-section in 2-3 days. We decided to have c-section on 15th may morning & went home. But on 13th may baby's movement suddenly stopped ....we rush to the hospital and checked.. already baby's heartbeats were stopped & we lost baby. What can be the reason in this case , where in 7th month "Polyhydramnios" was analysed.I was on diet (without sugar) throughout pregnancy.Its just bcoz of the "Diabetics" or anything else can be the reason ? What are the precautions need to be take for future pregnancy ? Please Advice.

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out.

I am so sorry to hear about the loss. Most of the causes of still birth are linked to placental complications. However gestational diabetes is another important cause. It can be due to early placental separation and even infections or pre eclampsia in the mother.

Even polyhydroamnios has been attributing to stillbirth.

In future pregnancy, have close regular follow ups with your obstetrician and get your blood pressure and sugar levels monitored regularly.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
