My pregnancy was going great..No problems at all..At my 18 weeks ultrasound ( 3 weeks ago) They told me it was a girl and she looked good. They wanted me to come back in 3 weeks just to get a better look at her profile and heart chambers since she was breech and couldn't get the best look. 2 weeks later I had an OB appt. and they found her heart beat..I still had a feeling something was wrong, but kept having fine doctor's appt. Well, Monday 1/18 I went to my repeat ultrasound and the tech said she didn't see a heartbeat...I was in shock and felt ill....I went right to the hospital and at 6:42 am on 1/20 I delivered my sleeping baby girl. The doctor came in right away and said the cord was wrapped tightly around her neck...She said looked perfect otherwise and was growing, she probably had died a few days before...Has this happened to anyone else? I thankfully have a healthy 3 year old son at home and he is keeping me going. I really want another baby, but need time to recover physically and emotionally...This is just a freak thing that can happen. I am hoping my baby girl watches over me in my next pregnancy...This just sucks!

Hi, I am relly sorry for what has happened to you. My story is different to you but I thought it might help to know that there is other people out there going thru the same pain of losing a baby. On the 27 dec, at 22 weeks I went into labour and my beautiful twin boys did not make it. I had a healthy pregnancy and right up till I gave birth my twins were ok. They were to small to survive. The pain is with me every day. They were my first babies and I still find it hard to believe it happened to me. All my results are fine and I too want another baby. I am really scared.

I also lost my baby girl. I was 23 weeks. On January 1st I was told that there was no heartbeat! I delivered her on the 2nd! It is heart wrenching!My daughter appeared to be okay at every appointment also! I have 3 other children, but find it very difficult to get past this! My oldest daughter is also having a tough time. I think wanting another baby must be normal, because I hear it when I talk to anyone who has been through what we have. My Hannah was a surprise, but I want another baby now, more than ever. It is just such an incomplete feeling! Nothing will replace her, I know that, but I yearn for a baby to hold in my arms! I know I will be scared, but when I am physically and emotionally healthy enough I know I have to try again! I am so sorry for your loss!

Thank you so much for both your stories...sandflorida: Do you know she died?
It kinda helps to know others who have gone thru this, does that make sense?

My husband and I lost our son on the 16th of January. I also had a labor and a good delivery. He had died sometime in the afternoon on the 15th. We do not know what occured as he looked normal and didn't seem to have any cord issues. the hospital is doing some testing but I agree this is horrible and noone should ever have to do this. I hope Chance will look oer my family as well.

I like the others had a normal pregnancy. At 20 weeks everything looked good. At my 24 week appointment there was no heart beat. My soul was crushed. We have two beautiful girls. The hardest was to find out the we lost our son. He had his cord wrapped around his neck and an abnormal section in his cord. He went to heaven on Jan 27.

If it was the doctor's fault can you prove it? I would want to do something about it if it was!

I had ultra sound at 20 weeks to find out the sex they said I was haveing a boy. He was fine everything looked ok he was moveing had heart bet. 6 days later my water broke whent to hosp. and they said babys heart bet was good and they didnt think my water broke they thought i was just haveing alot of bleeding but i knew what happend I hadnt felt him move all that day and I knew my water broke. Early the next morning they did a ultra sound his heart bet had droped by half then they told me my water did brake and I was dilated. I had him at 8:00pm that day and by the time he came out my poor little Ryan had passed they said there was no chance a 21 week baby could live so the dr. let me be in labor a day n a half and in that time my baby died inside me. This is the hardest thing i have ever been threw I dont know how i feel Just empty.
