I'm so sorry for your loss. Being followed by a high risk OB is a good thing. While it wasn't cord, we lost our first at 24 weeks and lost one twin from a delivery at 28 weeks. I am so blessed to have the two wonderful kids that I have and wish you that same joy soon in your future!

I lost my baby boy almost a week ago on July 20th at 17 weeks. I started leaking amniotic fluid at 12 weeks and my doctor wasn't very optimistic about the outcome. We had a great heartbeat at every checkup as well as at home on the fetal monitor. I went to the hospital Monday July 18 with bleeding but heartbeat was good and cervix closed. The next day at my check up heartbeat was still good and bleeding had mostly stopped. Wednesday morning I woke up to his cord descending out of me. When we got to the hospital there was no heart beat and I delivered him after being induced. I feel empty and today we picked his ashes up from the funeral home. I want to try again soon but I am also afraid that something will happen again. I'm terrified. I have a healthy 13 yr old who I never had any complications with. I want to believe he is in good hands and we will have a healthy pregnancy when we conceive but it's hard to not worry after going through this.

I'm so sorry for the loss of your baby boy, it is a horrendous thing to go through and something that definitely changes you as a person. I have a son now who is a little over five weeks and during his pregnancy I was plagued by anxiety and concern that something would happen, to be honest I think that is standard after a loss and I don't think there is one person who has lost a child and then enjoyed a rainbow pregnancy. Please be assured that because tragedy has struck once that it will happen again; this is something that I didn't believe myself until my son was here and safe. You may feel the same, but just know that rainbow babies are born every day. Get support if you need it and stay positive. I had to tell myself every day "at this moment in time, there is nothing to say that anything is wrong" and although the nine months felt like a lifetime, towards the end of the pregnancy I started to believe and relax a little (like the smallest amount!). Try when you're ready and focus on the positives xxx
