Still Birth- why does heart beat stop of a healthy feotus
I was 39 weeks and due on 22 jun 2012. right from the beigning of pregnancy i was all normal with all my baby reports +ve. i had my last visit to the gynac on 19 jun 2012, there was no sonography, but my bp, and heart beat of the baby was normal. Sonography was done on 22-may 2012. suddenly on 20jun2012 night i felt there was no movement but was too tired that day and thought probably the baby is as well tired and shall move if i rest. the next day i was anxiously waiting for it to move but by evening my worry started building, couldnt gauge how important it was too know if ur baby is moving or not and really dont know if my baby was with me or not when i first felt its not moving. the next day 22jun2012 in my doctors visit i found out my baby doesnt have heart beat.they had nor reasons to give. why does it happen that a healthy baby right from begining, why does it loose heart  beat suddenly. mind keeps on looking out for answer, if it was my mistake somewhere, did i make it too late, could i had saved my child if i would have realised the situation early. I lost my baby on the day she was suppose to be with me.Please help me know a reason why this happen.

there really isn't a reason why things like this happen, it wasn't your fault though I can say that 100%.  Sadly you may never have an answer but you are not alone

My condolences on your heart breaking loss I can't imagine how tough that must be ..I had a miscarriage at almost 16 weeks an was told it was most likely a placenta defect or something along those lines anytime there is a second or third trimester loss they usually chalk it up to defects of the nutrient an oxygen suppliers to the baby ..have u had a successful delivery prior or was this your first pregnancy??also when you are ready ask them for the results of the tests they ran on the baby and placenta ..because it was such a late loss they legally had to study it an try to find the problem ..It's not going to bring back your child but it might give u some answers to your questions later ..I felt a little peace in knowing details about my sons death but it took me a little while to be strong enough to ask ..I hope u find a little peace in this in time .if u need someone to talk to or vent to u can also inbox me ...

I was very saddened to read your post. It brought back some of the feelings i had when I found out that my baby had past away. I had a still birth also. I was 27 weeks with a little girl. I too was having a perfect pregnancy.  She was strong and healthy, after I gave birth to her we realized that she had twisted her cord. It was a little easier knowing what happened but not really. There still wasn't a reason why. Why me, why her. Did i want her too much? Was i to cocky about how great my pregnancy was going? Whatever the reason I'll never know and nor will you.  My body screamed to be pregnant.  I couldn't stand it. I looked down and still saw a pregnant belly but i knew there wasn't a baby in there. After 6 weeks of recovery my doctor told me I could begin try again when ever i wanted. So i did and 5 months later i was pregnant with twins! I'm due any day, i have some stress, some fear. I just want them here. If i don't go into labor soon they will induce me around the 15th so i have a week left. Can't wait intill its all over and then I'll be able to relax a little.

Trust me i feel you pain and reading your post cause a tear for my son. I too was pregnant and had no problems at all i got to 19.5 weeks all was good went to my ultrasound appointment to find out gender of baby which we were stressing about as we wanted a boy so bad.  In the end they spent more time digging my stomach which i later found out was because there was no heartbeat on the little one.
I had to deliver my baby still born at 20 weeks and it broke my heart to find out that i finally would have a had a son but now he isnt coming home with me. i still after a few mths fell empty and without purpose i am redirecting my thoughts to try to have another child before my age makes it more difficult.
i will tell you this site helped me a lot as there are many woman on here that have gone through this and go on to have healthy babies so it gives me hope.  
i too wanted to know the reason behind my son chances death so i let them test him and i just found out a week ago that they found nothing he was completely developing normal.  they informed me that it was more then likely a cord accident where he moved and wrapped the cord and pinch off his life support.  
Truely sorry if you ever want to chat with someone please feel free to add me.

So sorry about your loss. Two months ago I lost my baby boy at 38weeks. I went to hospital at 37weeks after experiencing mild labour pains and they said I was not due yet. I went back home and 4 days later I went back after my water broke. When I arrived they did all the tests then told me that my baby's heart had stopped. It felt like a dream. 2 days later we buried my little angel. I still haven't accepted my loss. The pain in my heart is soo deep. I cry myself to sleep almost every night.  He was a healthy baby and I had a healthy pregnancy. I pray to God to give me strength to carry on.
