I lost my baby at 18 weeks due to premature rupture of membranes. I was just wondering if anyone else has gone through this ??? I dont see any PPROM boards here. My baby had a strong heartbeat until i delivered, which makes it worse for me knowing that she was fighting and i somehow gave up on her
Does anyone know the chances of it happening again or why it happens?? I had 3 normal healthy pregnancies and all were over due. So i dont know why or how this happened.
There are a few women that this has happened to, and I think one is currently pregnant and on the Pregnancy and Motherhood After Loss board. I am very sorry that this happened to you. I do know a woman in real life that this happened to and she just gave birth to a full term baby boy, so sometimes it's just one of those things. It is hard not to blame yourself, but there are only so many things in life that you can control, and situations like these, horrible and devastating as they are, are beyond our control.
I had a very normal pregnancy with my first child and carried to term.
I lost my second baby at 20 w, and 6 days. I started bleeding a little and was seen by a doctor that morning. By 11:30PM, I went to the bathroom and my water broke. I delivered in my home with very little contractions. I was diagnosed as having Incompetent Cervix.
With my next pregnancy, I had a cerclage placed in my cervix and carried to 36 weeks. I don't know if that's what happened to you, but it's a place to start some research.
I'm always here for some questions. Big hug! I'm sorry you lost your little one.
New Mom to a baby boy!
