Miscarriage at 28 weeks


Hi everyone,

My sister just had a miscarriage at 28 weeks, no body knows what the reason was, has anyone else had a m/c so late.

I am now 25 weeks pregnant and so upset for my sister and dont know how to support her because i know it will upset her seeing my belly.

She really wants an answer as to why this has happened to her and no one can give her one, I just wanted to see if anyone else has experience a m/c so late.

Thanks xx

Goodness, that is terrible. So very sorry to hear this.

Unfortunately, I dont have any experience of late miscarriages but wanted to say I am thinking of your sister.

So sorry hun

Its not classed as a miscarriage after 24wks, did her baby die before birth? cos this would be an IUD otherwise it is just classed as severe prematurity

I lost my baby girl due to premature rupture of membranes which was classed as a late miscarriage even though she survived for 10 mins after being born

Try not to worry hun as this is not very common xx

I'm so sorry to hear this. Cant imagine what shes going through. My friend just delievered her baby at 20wks and also lost him..sad

I'm just curious...why are they calling it a miscarriage? did the baby come out alive? B/c if he/she did and then didnt make it that would be a premature baby who didnt make it. or if the baby died in side and came out then that was a stillborn...? Youd dont have to answer sweetie i understand , i was just wondering . If you talk to her or have her talk to the doctor they may be able to do tests in her blood and the baby(if she wants to..alot of women dont want to go through that.) If you could get the details of what happened...like did she just go in for an ultrasound and baby wasnt alive..or did she have contractions , bleeding....all that is important to know to try and determine what happened. I may be of some help so feel free to pm if you want.

Take care and dont worry like others said that is very uncommon. Thoughts and prayers to your family.

This only just happened this morning, I am calling it a miscarriage sorry got the wrong term. Apparently from what I have heard so far the baby was not alive inside her so they gave her some kind of drugs to induce her and then she gave birth to the baby.

I could be wrong tho as her partner is telling me one thing and my mum is telling me another.

I just feel so helpless as I cant go see her and want to know what will happen next, what she has to go through and how to help her through this.


uvlollypop I am so sorry to hear about what you went through x

I'm so sorry I lost my baby at 28 weeks in October. I had a silent infection and by the time he was born he'd been sick for a while and he died a few hours after he was born. Speak to your sister and ask her if it will upset her to see you. My nephew was born 2 weeks before my son died, and my niece 2 weeks after. My 2 best friends are also pregnant. It's tough, but it was important to me that I saw them and dealt with it early. I'm thinking of your family
