  • i think you would have died of infection before then because the baby would have begun to rot and the infection would have entered your blood. it wouldn't take 8 months for that to happen....it would have been pretty soon after the baby died.

  • the body SHOULD expel it. mine wasnt so i was at risk of infection if it stayed so they scheduled the procedure. did you ever see anything about "stone babies?" a woman was pregnant and from another country. she was in her 70's or so when she came to america to have it removed. it was outside of her uterus and turned to "stone". she said she thought she was pregnant when she was younger. its rare. heres a case...

  • It has happened actually.

    I read an article of a woman that had her dead baby inside for 60 years and another for 46 years. Google it.
