Hi Everyone, I'm new here. I found the board through a google search. I delivered my son last week at 17w5d. I had an ultrasound at 15w where we found out we were having a son. At that ultrasound the tech kept commenting on how "lazy" he was. He was moving, just not a lot. He was measuring right on track and they didn't see any issues. I hadn't felt any movement yet and I knew it was early but I was still concerned. I called my doctor to voice my concerns and they said to come in for a fetal heart check to ease my mind. I went in at 17w3d and they couldn't find a heartbeat for my little boy. I went in to be induced the next evening and delivered my son on June 24th. This is by far the hardest thing I have ever been through. I mainly joined this board for support from others who have experienced this horrible tragedy.
My doctors are doing some testing (my blood, the placenta, and my son) to see if they can find anything but they said to be prepared if the results are inconclusive. Today one of my doctors called and said that the placenta showed "signs of infection". I'm going to go in this week to get some testing done to see if I have any current infections. Has anyone experienced this? I feel so guilty that a possible infection could have caused my baby to lose his life.
