Welcome ladies!!

I am so glad we got this forum now - we need it. Stillbirth is so difficult to deal with espically for those of us that will/do have subsequent children or had children before the loss.

I felt stupid when I lost her -- I had no idea that I could lose her that way. Didn't even know what stillbirth was - how stupid did I feel when they told me that I had lost her. I figured (as much women do) get through the first trimister and your safe but guess again -- you are never safe.

I hope we are all able to help each other -

You sound a lot like me! I don't know if you happened to read my journal on Tucker's site, but I had gone through most of my pregnancy with Tucker wirthout even knowing I was pregnant. Once I found out I was pregnant, I didn't know how far along I was, though I suspicioned it was 4-5 months, not just beginning. Anyway, than I began to actually feel like the baby had died (I don't know why I felt this way), but all I could think was "surely my body would reject the baby if it was dead." I didn't know about stillbirth, never knew anyone who had had a stillbirth, I never said anyone to anyone because I felt so dumb not knowing...for heaven's sake, I'm a nurse, I should know these things. But, I didn't know, and my "feelings" were right, my baby was dead.

It is great we have this forum now, I am so happy I found it. I've never really had anyone to talk about my daughter with and its been mostly bottled up for years. I blamed myself for mine for years. I was caught out, got heatstroke and the babies oxygen supply was cut off. I shouldn't have been out in that heat but it wasn't my fault that there was no shelter. It was just one of those things that happens. It all happened so fast, I passed out was rushed to hospital and when I woke up I was in labour.
