I just joined this group because I lost my son and had to deliver him on June 23rd. I have been posting on the miscarriage group but my son was not really a miscarriage--he died in utero. I found out that he died due to a twisted cord (torsion). This is my first loss. I was 19 weeks when he was delivered but he had passed over a week before. I always thought the first trimester was the key time to get past--boy was I wrong!!! I was just wondering if most of the time it is a cord accident or if it can be other reasons for a loss in the second and third trimester? I cannot believe how common it is to lose a baby after the first trimester. It is unbelievable. For me I had let my guard down after the first trimester so I was completely shocked that my baby had passed. Thanks for any information. I am still trying to make sense of my loss.
