Many times the cause of an intrauterine fetal death is never discovered.
I am glad to hear that you have two children as this tells me that it is, indeed, possible for you to go full term.
So. What should you do?
First of all, try not to worry. I know, easier said than done...
Second, follow all the advice your OB/GYN doc tells you concerning what you should do and not do during this pregnancy. Also, if you are worried at any time over the next 9 months, do not hesitate to pick up the phone and talk to your OB doc. I'm sure she won't mind.
Third, do not believe or -- Gasp! -- follow any of the "advice" that the Evil Dr. Google has to offer. Your trusted and well-educated OB/GYN doctor is your best source of what to do in order to have the best outcome for this pregnancy.
Does this make sense to you?
Don't forget to mash the positive feedback button for me...the one labeled "excellent" is the most fun to push by far ;)
It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I don't go up in a puff of smoke -- I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.
