Can anyone give me any info on stillbirth? Is this a common occurance? Are there any signs, causes, etc? I am the kind of person that tends to worry a bit- I try not to but I just can't help myself sometimes. While I was relieved to be in my second trimester because the risk of miscarriage dramatically decreases, then I just started worrying about that instead. I think that I worry too much sometimes, even though I only get these worries every so often but it seems like other people I know that are pregnant or have recently been pregnant never have any of these concerns. Am I just odd? Anyone else have these thoughts ever?
I felt the same way, relieved to be through the most common time for miscarriage but still worrying. My grandmother had two stillbirths that were never explained (of course they didn't have the technology then that we do now) and worries all the time that she passed along some genetic problem or something that will make the same thing happen to me. Her worrying makes me worry but I don't know much about it. I guess I've been afraid to even ask, but I would like to know. I can't imagine going through the whole pregnancy and birth only to loose my little guy. Any info would be appreciated but we all just need to think positive, say a prayer and have faith everything will be ok.
