2nd trimester miscarriage


I recently suffered a second trimester miscarriage. It was shocking and strange. It felt like walking on a moving Tilt-a-Whirl. The doctors told me it was uncommon. I delivered the baby but the placenta was retained. Again, they doctors told me it was uncommon. The reason our baby died was obvious: his umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck 3 complete times. Uncommon. So here's where I am: Please somebody tell me that I didn't win the completely uncommon and nobody else has ever had this happen to them jackpot.

I'm so sorry for your loss. My parents lost a full-term baby before they had me. He also had the cord wrapped around his neck and died a day after he was born. It is uncommon but it does happen unfortunately.

Hi, I also had a second trimester loss (at 15 weeks). There was no visible reason why she passed, she just did. I also had retained placenta but luckily it passed and I was ok.

I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. NOT that any one loss is worse than another, but when you pass that *scary* part of the first trimester and still have a loss, it just seems so much harder and so unfair.

Please know you are in my thoughts and my prayers :bigarmhug:

I am so sorry for your loss. There is no anwser and that is the hardest thing to understand. Do you have support groups in your area?

I suffered a 2nd trimester loss too. I was pregnant with identical twin boys. I was told my type of twin pregnancy isn't common at all, but when it does happen loss usually occurs. I am so sorry for your loss, no other words to say then it sucks:(. Just know that you did NOTHING to cause it. Keeping you in my prayers
