My dr got the complete autopsy from my son this morning. My placenta was healthy, and there were no clots or problems with his umbilical cord. All of his organs and blood vessels were formed correctly. His cause of death was caused by a Myocardial infarction, a heart attack. They said it happened 24 or so hours prior, which seems to coincide with the last time I felt movement. He also had his first bowel movement in response, so there was meconium found. I have never heard of a baby having a heart attack in utero, doe anyone have any experience or heard of this? My dr said this was the first time she has dealt with this in all of her years practicing, but says that it is very rare, and very unlikely to happen again.
