My son was born when i was 38 weeks and 6 days pregnant with him. I gave birth to him on february 8th but went to the hospital on february 7th and found he had no heart beat last i felt him kick had been the evening of february 6th. They told us they were sorry and not sure what had caused him to pass away we decided not to have an autopsy because we couldnt stand the though of him being cut open. now i kind of regret not getting one because not knowing what caused his death bothers me. He had low amnitoic fluid and was growth restricted his arms and legs were measuring at 22 weeks and his head and chest were measuring at 33 weeks, even though he was almost 39 weeks. his head was only 28 cm. he had six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot and his toes were webbed, his dads toes are webbed also though. parts of his skin were starting to come off and a big piece of skin on his little nose, he came out looking like his entire face was bruised but the rest of his body was relatively normal colored. Has anyone had experience with this or know any kind of genetic or chromosome disorders that would have caused this.

Losing a child for any reason is heartbreaking. I hope you heal in time.
