I am 18+4 and have a doppler & have been finding the heartbeat within seconds since i was about 12 weeks. I have been having problems & so i always doppler twice a day (I have a huge clot in my womb which has caused 2 massive bleeds- last one at 16 weeks). The heart was fine this morning- now this even- despite me trying for over 1 hour- NOTHING- i am very skilled at using a doppler as was shown by a previous midwife. Could my baby have died- i cant sleep now- i dont know what to do :-(

my midwife came this morning and couldnt find heartbeat either. She sent me into hospital for a scan & the worst has happened. My baby has died. Seems it was perfect size & everything- but died sometime yesterday. I am totally devestated & so very scared as have to go in Thirsday to be induced & give birth. I feel like I am losing my mind & cant quite get my head around this.

OP I am so very sorry for your loss. There are (too) many ladies here who have been through similar things and who will be able to support you.

Be kind to yourself and your partner.

So so, sorry for this terrible loss sad sad sad

Right now you dont have to do anything, just survive and breathe and cry and do whatever you need to to make it through the next minutes and hours.

Hope your partner is with you, holding you tight.

I will be thinking of you x
