:confused: Hallo,
Hope you can help. Last year I had a still born 35 week old baby – unexplained???
My sister has Anti phosphor lipid syndrome and lost her baby on 6 months, but he was born and lived a day. My baby hart suddenly stopped beating. I am a nurse I know I did nothing wrong to have caused any of this, they tested me but it was negative for this syndrome.
Anyone similar experience??

  • Yes I lost my son on Sept. 23 2007 I was 35 weeks pregnant they found nothing wrong w/ me or the baby. He just passed away i don't know why or what happened i just woke up one morning and didn't feel him moving like he usually did, so i went into the the hospital and they confirmed his heart had stopped.

My condolences for your loss. In my experience, most autopsies that I have done in the last trimester had causes of death related to the placenta or cord. Occasionally we find heart defects or abnormalities related to hypercoagulability syndromes. I've seen a few that were Turner's syndrome.

  • My condolences for your loss. In my experience, most autopsies that I have done in the last trimester had causes of death related to the placenta or cord. Occasionally we find heart defects or abnormalities related to hypercoagulability syndromes. I've seen a few that were Turner's syndrome.I was tested for the syndrome and came up negative also, I was wondering if a cord wrapped around my baby's leg could have been enough restriction to make him die. I lost him in Sept. at 35 weeks, and in the pictures that they took of him there is a place on his leg that looks as though he had something there constricting it for a long time. That is the only thing i can think of because when the autopsy was done the doctor said he couldn't find anything at all wrong w/ the cord, the placenta or the baby. When i asked my ob, and showed him the pictures he said he hadn't seen anything like it and has been in obstetrics for 15 years. I just really wish i had an answer or something for future pregnancy's. He was my first and i am terrified of something going wrong in a future pregnancy.

  • My heart goes out to you. As an OB nurse, I would guess either a cord accident (most likely), or underlying cardiac condition, although cardiac conditions usually came back on autopsies. I once saw a similar scenario at 39 weeks, but it was the cord wrapped around the arm. Pressure applied to the cord is similar to pressing on a major artery. If its flow is impinged, then oxygen cannot get through.

Even though I will never know the cause for sure, it helps to know that something like that can't just be completely ruled out. My husband and I want to start a family and have children so badly, but are so terrified when then say "Unknown", there could be something else wrong that hasn't been discovered yet, and the same thing could happen again in a future pregnancy. It may sound silly, but for my own sanity I can just let that be the "cause" in my own mind. I know when we try to have another baby I will be very nervous, and completely terrified, but its easier for me to be scared of something I know can happen, and is real, other than something that "hasn't been discovered yet" or "Unknown". Life really is a miracle and so very special, its insane how much it is taken for granted.

It's hard to accept, but sometimes things like this happen. My neighbour was two weeks overdue for her first baby, and went to hospital in labour. She had had an ultrasound the day before, and everything was fine, but the next day, the baby had died. There was nothing medically wrong, it was just one of those things.:( I am terribly sorry for your loss. Stay strong. *hugs*:)

  • Hi! Last Nov 2008 I also lost my first baby boy at 35 weeks. Found out that he has no heartbeat inside during my scheduled check-up. But before that, a week later I had my sugar checked 2nd time around. Sugar level was okay. So the next day after check-up, I gave birth thru ceasarian section bec my baby is in breech position. I am wondering if the sugar testing I had caused my baby a very hard time inside.But according to my doctor, high sugar is not the main cause, he said that he wants to check if I have Antiphospholipid Syndrome. I want to know what kind of test I have to undergone and how much is the cost.After my operation, they found out that my baby's cord is too long and twisted, I am not sure if this is due to the syndrome or whatosever...Right now, I have recovered from the operation as well as the lost of our 1st baby. My hubby and I is looking forward to have a child again after full recovery and hopefully negative test results.Thanks!
