Hi everyone. I have a few questions and concerns that I was hoping I could get some advice with. My husband and I lost our baby girl a little over 3 months ago. I was 39 weeks and had a completely problem free pregnancy. When Abby was born the cord was wrapped around her neck 3 times so the doctors assume that is what caused it since there was nothing else found. I have since had tons of blood work and basically everything came back negative. The only thing that came back positive was one of the tests for MTHFR. Basically they say I will just have to take extra folic acid, vitamin B12 and a baby aspirin daily. They told me if both came back positive, I could be prone to a clotting disorder but luckily that was not the case. I've met with the high risk doctor because of my history, I will always be considered a high risk pregnancy. They told me that I will get sonos every four weeks in the first 2 trimesters and weekly in the third trimester. They will also measure the heartrate and the blood flow through the cord. Although I am very happy that I will get lots of extra attention, I am a little nervous about the amount of sonograms. Has anyone ever heard anything bad about the radiation? I know many of you have had another baby after losing a child to stillbirth and others of you are pregnant currently. How have your doctors treated you differently? Any comments or bits of knowledge regarding too many sonograms would be really helpful or anything you suggest I follow through with during my next pregnancy. We are going to start trying this month. Thanks for listening, I thought you all would be the best people to turn to for advice.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
