It took us about 2 weeks to get our complete results of autopsy back. They did not really shed any light on reasons for Lewis to just have his heart stop beating. He was well grown, my placenta was normal size and he was normally developed. My FS said unfortunately it just happened. He also stated that not enough is known still regarding miscarriages and loss of babies in utero. He said it is well known that babies can have irregular heartbeats that eventually settle down but just as can happen once you are born, why can't they also have an irregular heartbeat that causes a loss of rhythm? He said so much more needs to be learnt because despite advances in fertility medicine there is not much difference between now and 20 years ago when it comes to pregnancy loss.
Just like us you may never have your answer. Sometimes it is clear but other times no one has any idea. As our FS said to us this might (and highly likely won't) affect future pregnancies. But it doesn't stop you from feeling frightened all the same!
