Tomorrow I'm meeting with my doctor...He's quitting, so I'm not sure if I'm going to see him, or if I have to see another doctor...I really hope that I can see him at least threw most of my pregnancy...I have a hard time trusting people, and it takes me a long time to feel comfortable with new doctors...So we are going to talk about what's going to happen this pregnancy....I also hopefully will find out what the autopsy report showed...I'm anxious, but at the same time I'm worried that it's going to be something bad, something that can repeat this time, and I'm worried that they won't have any answers even though I'd rather know, than not know (if that makes sense)...I just have such mixed emotions right now over it all...I've already had a couple break downs today, and tonight I'm not sure I'll get any sleep...One thing I was wondering about...I think she died from cord torsion, but when they did her autopsy all that part of her cord was cut away, how will they be able to tell that's what it was from? So anyway, I hope to come home with some answers tomorrow.

I'm pretty sure that they check the placenta and cord separately. We didn't have an autopsy done and the doc still was able to tell me all about my placenta etc at my last visit.. that there was an infarct on the placenta, a dead area. So I think the placenta study is done regardless...even in healthy births they check the placenta etc.

Yes I know my placenta was checked, and he told me at my appointment that it came back fine...I'm so worried that they will say that her cord had nothing to do with her death...Her cord was all twisted and thin (no jelly)...It did not look like a normal cord...I've had 4 baby's before that and I had never seen anything like that...It wasn't twisted like it had happend after she died, it was twisted like it grew that way...From what I read they don't always say that's a cause of death...I also read a story of a woman who had that happen 3 times!...I just think i'm grasping at anything...I just need to know...I don't want them to say they couldn't find a cause, but at the same time i'd rather know that than wonder all the time what it was....I had a hard time not crying at my first appointment on tuesday, but i know that I won't be able to hold back tomorrow...I've been an emotional mess today.

Good luck! I hope you will find the answers. It's definately hard for those of us who don't know the reason.
