Re: Those of you that have had late losses (10+ weeks)...

What are you feeling is normal. After 3 miscarriages (4 babies: one set of twins), I never stop worrying. Sitting here almost 30 weeks and I am still freaking out if I don't feel her move much.

However losing a baby after hearing the HB is rare and you have to keep telling yourself that. However it doesn't stop us from constantly monitoring the baby. I bought a doppler with my last rainbow baby. I was able to hear her every other day until I felt her kicking. We thought we were out of the woods and thankfully I knew something was wrong at 37w when she was "slowing" down, checked and her HB was going to 90. When she came out, she had a double knot in her cord. I never regretted buying the doppler after that .

If you are stressing about it, call your OB. They usually allow extra doppler checks and even some can sneak in u/s. Extra stress isn't good either.. hugs
