A week ago tomorrow, I delivered our angel. I would have been 25 weeks exactly. We estimate that her heart stopped beating Sunday or Monday. At my appointment Tuesday, we got the awful news. I had just had an appointment the previous Thursday with my high risk team. I was only deemed high risk due to my low platelet count. Everything was fine. A previous issue with her heart (slight reflux) had corrected itself and the doctor told me she was perfect. Less than a week later, she was still perfect. Just still. So far, we have no answers. The doctor has taken a biopsy and we should have results this month. She thinks it may have been HELPP syndrome, leading to vascular problems. Has anyone had any experience with this? It seems to be rare and usually misdiagnosed. I know it has only been a week, but I'd like to try again as soon as possible. I miss her so much I can barely breathe at times. I know at that point in my pregnancy, I should expect to have milk come in. One final heartbreak to withstand. Does anyone have tips to stop this from happening or to make it stop quickly? Also, I have my follow up visit scheduled for Monday. What should I expect from this? And how long should I expect to bleed? I seem to be barely bleeding as it is. All of this just seems so unfair and unnatural. I'm just looking for whatever answers or insight someone that has been through this may have. Thank you in advance for whatever help or advice you can give me.

I don't understand why no one can seem to comment. It's very disheartening.

My daughter is 21 weeks and was just told today that
the baby no longer has a heartbeat....I'm so
sorry this has happened to you! My prayers are with
you at this time.
It seems like life is so unfair right now but a very
smart doctor told me a long time ago that "Even God and
20 horses could not have stopped what happened".
My heart breaks for you and your pain but it does get
easier.
