hi, id like some impartial advice please. I had my first pregnancy and stillborn daughter born at 37weeks, her name is penny. I had a normal pregnancy, but in my 3rd trimester developed a PUPPS rash. I was given creams and piriton. then at my 36wk midwife apt my babys hb was 196 and I was measuring over the 'large' line on growth chart. went to antenatal day unit (ANDU) and was given ajug of water and her hb came down, sent home after 20mins. 2days later went back to ANDU as rash remedies nolonger working. given a obstetrician apt the next day and seen by junior dr who said she'd refer me to dermatology, she also noticed I was bigger again on growth chart, referred me for 'asap ultrasound as query polyhydramios/ gest diabetes- my apt came through for when id of been 39 +3 pregnant! went round for my diabetic check and was told I souldnt have been referred as I am over 34weeks so to monitor with finger prick tests, i remember crying down the phone the next day saying to a midwife they want to see if something is up through an ultrasound and if i wait til im 39 +3 itll be too late, i was just told there was nothing they could do about that. went in again at 37weeks with reduced movements and low and behold my baby had died. my question is i know this scan may have found nothing and it may have always been inevitable but shouldn't they have somehow managed to scan me more urgent than 3weeks later- they soon magicd up an ultrasound to detect no heartbeat please help someone im driving myself insane with it
