Miscarriage & Still Birth Message Board


Miscarriage & Still Birth Board Index


I think I didn't make my story very clear :) . My brother and I are twins and we are only a couple of minutes apart in age. So we shared our b-day but I was told growing up that my brother was the oldest (the doctor recommended this) so that I would have a "big" brother to look out for me. At 25 I found out that I was actually born first.

I'm confused as to why you feel your mom may have miscarried you at 34 weeks. A miscarriage *always* results in a nonviable baby (a baby that did not or cannot survive outside the womb). A baby [B]cannot[/B] survive a miscarriage...[B]ever[/B]. If they survive then it is *not* a miscarriage.

I have personally had a late miscarriage at 17 weeks. The labor was much like regular labor except shorter and not as painful (didn't have to dilate to 10 and no pushing stage). A "late" miscarriage is a miscarriage between 12 and 20 weeks of pregnancy. After 20 weeks it's considered a stillbirth. So even delivering a dead baby at 34 weeks would not be considered a miscarriage but a stillbirth.

If you could explain in more detail why you feel it was a miscarriage your mom had maybe I would be able to understand better. I'm very unclear about it. I know very well what is considered a miscarriage and what is not (I've had 5 and have read on the subject extensively) maybe I'm missing some pieces to this puzzle?

Love and Prayers, Kelly
