Miscarriage & Still Birth Message Board

Miscarriage & Still Birth Board Index

I am so sorry to hear your story. I also had a missed miscarriage, but I found out at 10 weeks, and took misoprostol to induce the miscarriage. They said according to the size it had died at about 7 weeks. I also had a normal u/s just days before they think the baby died. I didn't have any symptoms at the time other than a lower back ache, and some spotting at six weeks, and then at 10 weeks. I was feeling pregnant with morning sickness, breast tenderness and all that whole time my baby had died. I realized when I was looking for information, that it is all very general with a lot of "we can't determine why" answers. I wish there was more information out there about women's symptoms, because a lot of times they aren't classic. Thatís why I've found this board to be so valuable, because you hear stories from women that have a lot more information, and then you realize that your story and questions are the same as others. I wish I could give you some answers. I'm sure youíre having to deal with a lot right now psychologically as you must have though you were in the clear in your 2nd trimester, and shared the news with others. My heart really goes out to you! Please take care!
first let me say how sorry I am to hear of your loss, I have had similar experiences and even know (almost 2 years on) I have so many unanswered questions which is probably one of the hardest things. I dont know where to start but like wizard,yourself and others I was told my baby had died weeks before than what it had. I know this is not the case because I felt my baby kicking 2 days before I found out he had died. I had a missed miscarriage at 19 wks and they said he was measuring 16 wks, I think the baby can sometimes shrink after it has died as I know for a fact when I felt the kicking the whole reason I went into hospital was coz I hadnt felt kicking for 2 days and like yourself had no pain no cramping not even a bleed took me totally by surprise this is why they are called missed miscarriages coz you miss the symptoms, I also lost another one at 15 wks, in the exact same way although I found out as I brought a doppler due to losing the other one. I checked with the doppler every day just so I knew for sure exactly when he died.
words cannot express what has happened to you but I hope by sharing my experiences it may help a little
take care of yourself wishing you all the best and I hope you can get the support you need from these boards like I have.
Like you my baby died at 13wks 6days gestation, but I was supposed to be farther along 16+ wks. And like you I had no signs of an impending m/c. I was also showing and growing. I even had morning sickess up until the day after my D&C.I never found out the sex via ultrasound but after the baby was born I found she was a girl. I had a feelig she would be.

I never had any bleeding or spotting my entire pregancy. I had two other m/c before this one and they were so differ. I had terrible cramps, lower back pain and bleeding. No D&C with those. So with this last baby I thought I was in the safe for sure. It wasn't until I went in for a routine check for HB listening that none was found .....when we had just heard it a few wks earlier. I new then what the outcome would be. And sure enough baby showed no HB and unmoving on the monitor. I was so numb and in shock as well. I didn't even cry for a while. I couldn't. I bascially just sat and stared. I had a weekend to prepare for surgery with baby to say goodbye to it in me. It felt so surreal. I didn't really show emotion till I came too after surgery and asked if my baby came out okay. Then reality set in.

Its been two months and I am still having a hard time dealing with this. I have good days and bad ones. You will as well.

I too wonder why with this one my body didn't know that the baby had died. Its called a missed misscarriage. Only in retropect do I wonder about something that happened around the time the baby had died. I delt with constipation for a long time all through the entire preg. But two differ days I all of a sudden had the worst gastric cramps like I needed to go diarrhea but I was pretty clogged up so it was just a lot of painful cramps. Im sorry to be gross and graphic. Its interesting but when that happened I had a nagging feeling that wasnt normal I even did some google searches to ease my mind, but no blood and still preg symptoms.. so I thought I was fine. I truly believe that was when my baby was dieing.

Feel free to chat on here with us and to vent if need be. I tend to write reallly long blogs as well. Take care and hope you find some answers.--Jess
