I have to know what you all think. Not very many people actually use the support groups I belong to on CafeMom so I wanted to know from all of you mom's. 

History: This past January, my husband and I lost our son, Hudson, when I was 22 weeks pregnant. He had an umbilical cord accident. This has been the hardest thing we have ever gone through.

Now, I am 8 weeks and 4 days pregnant with our second child. We went to the OB this past Friday and got an u/s done. With my first pregnancy, we had our first u/s at 6 weeks. When you look at the two pictures, you can see our son is at the bottom of my uterus and with this pregnancy the baby is at the top. Could this have been why we lost our son or is it just because of the 2 week difference? But our son just couldn't have moved up to the top through out the pregnancy. I just don't understand how there is such a difference in where the new baby is and were our son was. Can anyone help or explain?

Top: our son Hudson at 6 weeks

Bottom: New baby at 8 weeks

did the techs tell you they were at the top or bottom?  because those pics aren't accurate in that, they just show whatever plane they're on.  It can be upside down sideways etc.  If that is the case though, the placement doesn't matter in terms of that.  with my son the placenta implanted on top of my cervix so obviously he was down low.  Eventually they fill the whole uterus up anyway, it's just a matter of where the egg implanted. 

I'm so sorry about your son, good luck with your pregnancy!

no hun where the baby implanted in your uterus has nothing to do with the umbilical cord messing up. My sister in law lost her babygirl when she was 8 and a half months pregnant. The cord got a kink in it, they had a ultrasound the week before and there was nothing wrong with the baby or the cord at that time. Things like this happen, I know it isn't easy and just remember that just because your pregnancy ended the way it did, its doesn't guarentee that this one will end like that too. My sil after her miscarrage she gave birth to another healthy baby girl. I know that with this pregnancy you are probably terrified, but please try to relax, and enjoy this pregnancy.

It doesn't matter where in the uterus the egg implants. Eventually the baby will move away from that spot as it gets bigger and fill up the uterus. The only danger is if the placenta is blocking the cervix, and then a C-section is required. Best wishes for a healthy baby!

 Thank you all for everything. I know I can stop stressing about where this baby is a where my son was. Well, I'm still going to be worried through out this pregnancy but not as much about where the baby is in my uterus.

Thanks again!

I miscarried at 10 weeks so I know how hard it is to be pregnant after a loss.  I just thought I would let you know what helped me through.  Anytime I started worrying I would thank God for another day with my son instead of worrying it would be his last.  It really helped me to focus on what was important (him being with me now) vs. all of the ¨what ifs.¨  I became determined to enjoy my time with him and it really helped me :)
