Ditto to what Brittanie said. We have women posting here sometimes who had losses as early as 16 weeks. Where I live it's not "medically" considered a stillbirth until you reach 20 weeks, however I don't think that 1 more week of pregnancy would have made any difference in amount of grief you feel or the support you need at this time. The fact that you gave birth and met your baby face to face really gives you something in common with those of us who made it to/past 20 weeks...Something about holding your dead baby makes the loss so concrete.
