Pregnancy after stillbirth

Samsy profile image

Hi everyone, I am new to this site. Last year in September I gave birth to a still born baby girl at 30 weeks pregnant. I have only just discovered I’m pregnant again I am so so frightened. I don’t think I could bear to live through another pregnancy loss again.

I’m looking for support out there is there is anyone else in similar circumstances.

Hi hun my heart goes out to you. My little girl was born asleep at 39 weeks. The darkest time of my life. When I found out I was pregnant again I was terrified. All through the pregnancy i was on pins. The midwives etc were brilliant, you will be closely checked because of what happened and I was classed as a high risk pregnancy. Am am sure all will be fine this time round. I didn't relax until I heard my little boy cry then I burst into tears, all the worry gone. I will never forget my gorgeous girl, but from tragedy can come joy hun. I hope this will be your happy ending x

I’m so sorry to hear about your little girl.

I’m absolutely terrified I do not think I could live through another pregnancy loss. It is just so on edge all the time. Maybe these are normal feeling after loss in a baby.

And thankyou so much for your kind reply it has helped so much.

I know you will never forget your beautiful little girl, But I’m so glad you had a happy ending.

Sending lots of love

Thank you hun. Your feelings are all normal, I too knew that if it had happened again it would have finished you. Your little angel will be by your side through it and all will be fine. You are in my heart. Take care of you and your bump 😀 x

Hi Samsy,

I’m so sorry for your loss.

I lost my daughter in March aged 26days and these past few months have been more painful than I could explain.

I have recently found out I am pregnant too and I am terrified.

I had a gene screening prior to falling pregnant but it was all clear. My daughter died in hospital from complications treating her undetected heart defect.

Last Thursday when I was at work I passed a huge gush of blood, I get scanned Thursday.

It’s inevitable that we will be nervous through our pregnancies but you’re not alone and I am sending you love, good luck and strength xxx

Hello, and thankyou so much for your reply. I’m so sorry for your loss I really hope and pray everything works out for you. It’s a very scary time.

If you don’t mind me asking how many weeks are you.

I’m 6 1/2 weeks so very early days.

Sending lots of love and hugs xx

I’m sorry for your loss, you never get over these things but we learn to live with them.

I lost a baby girl last year to Edwards Syndrome. So very sad. There aren’t enough words.

I’ve just given birth to a healthy baby girl. She’s 2 weeks old. The whole pregnancy, I was closely monitored but i didn’t relax until she was in my arms and then I wept. I wept for the loss of my baby and the birth of my baby.

You’ll be the same. Wishing you all the love & luck in the world xx
