SCARED

Of delivering a still born I am terrified I was reading and I stumbled across some articles where women delivered still borns now I can't help but think that is what's gonna happen to me especially cause I smoke one to maybe three cigarettes a day or every other day. I hope this doesn't freak any of you ladies just wanted to get this out my mind if you ladies can send some postive thoughts my way I would really appreciate it I only have 12 days to go thank youl

Hi all I can say is try not to worry about it. It is very unlikely that this would happen. They monitor your baby whilst you are in labour and will know if something is wrong. The more you think about it the more you will stress yourself out and that isn't good for anyone! All will be fine. Good luck x

Nancy,  this is highly unlikely with the monitoring they do during delivery.  You will have a fetal heart monitor on the whole time you're in labor and pushing,  and you will know for sure that your baby's heart is still beating.  If a problem develops and the cord gets pinched,  and the heartrate slows dramatically they can have the baby out amazingly fast.

I wouldn't even think about that...12 days to go ur baby is cooked and waiting to bust out of u (literally) and as long as he or she is bouncing around I think u will be find....just think about how its going to feel to finally hold ur baby for the first time...

Omg me to nancy. I only have 1 week left and so scared of something happening in labour. We gotta stop thinking like this cause its just stressing us out and we don't need that right now. Stay positive our time is almost up. But good luck with everything :) x

I only know one person that delivered a still born, but she had gotten into an accident and wasn't paying attention to whether baby was moving like normal, when she finally went to the doc to get checked they found the cord wrapped around baby's neck and had to induce her. So unusual circumstances is the only thing that caused it. If you are aware of your body and baby then everything will be fine.
