Still born

I was wondering how likely it is to have a stillborn? Im 33w tomorrow and worried sick that ill have a stillbirth. I take my prenatal everyday and i will admit, i havent been eating the healthiest foods during my pregnancy. I know it can just happen but im so scared. What can i do to reassure myself my lo will be fine?

I am the same way! Ever since I was a little girl I always thought the worst possible things would happened to me, now that I'm pregnant I'm worried sick out the possibilities of bad things happening to her:( I'm due in 5 days.
The best you can do is just really try an think positive things.
The doctors will do everything in their power to make sure our little one's are okay.

The risk of stillborn is very low unless its a genetic or chromosome reason, i know this because my daughter was still born at 27 weeks due to rare chromosome disorder..the chances of it just happening is very low, stay calm & relax, i hope u have a safe delivery & healthy baby :)

Is your baby kicking around? If so that's a good sign.

She doesnt move around very much anymore. I went to the hospital yesterday cuz she didnt move for two days and they said she was fine. Do you think thry can detect chromosomal problens in an ultrasound? Im so sorry for your loss

They made me quickly drink two cups of ive water and had me monitored. They said she was moving the way shes supposed to but i just dont feel it when im sitting. Do i have to lay down when i want to feel her move?

Well you have to keep in mind the more she grows the less room she has to move. Stay positive!

They wud have detected sumthin already, keep calm & u & ur daughter will be fine :)

If the baby is moving at all she is alive. I say this as sensitively as possible, but your fear is probably irrational. It is most likely, if they did a recent ultrasound, they would have detected if there are any anomalies w the fetus. Please try to put these fears to rest and take care.

Ive had two misscarriages and a stillborn I was 27 weeks with my stillborn when she wasn't moving went to my as soon as I could bc it was christmas of last year and she was gone had to go in give birth to her and that was the hardest thing I've done...it can happen at anytime not to scare you just ddon't lift to much if you don't feel the baby move like normal amounts of times like your use to and doesn't move within like 8 hours go to er right away don't mess arpund and wait I did bc I figired she was just having a lazy day and layed on my left side drank some juice like drs say to get baby to move around and she was gone bc a very rare thing with her embilical cord and it being to thin ro where blood and stuff wasn't getting to her properly had I my drs I use to go to kept an eye on it I would still have my baby girl and she would be alive .. you can help yourself not have one if you make sure to pay attention like drs tell you and check for movement everyday couple times a day ...if it starts to slow down and be a lot less per day get it checked out asap to make sure its embilical cord isn't wrapped or something else went wrong ok...no lifting over your heart to help prevent embilical cord wrapping around something and auffocation ask for help don't chance it ....any worries call your drs and talk to a nurse they'll tell you whst to do from there or if you need to be seen right away most importantly just relax stay calm and try to enjoy your pregnancy ...I'm 16 weeks now and am scared to death of it happening again but I'm trying so hard to enjoy being pregnant and waiting to have my baby to love and hold ....good luck to all moms ik it can be scary but stillborn doesn't happen to often to be to worried specially if you've made it that far in your pregnancy ....mine was a very rare case which my body is known for rare things to happen so good luck and enjoy I'm sure you and your baby will be just fine :-)
