23yo female last pregnacy resulted in a stillbirth at 38weeks placenta stopped working. Preg again wagt are the chances of happening again?
Difficult to say: It would depend on why the "placenta stopped working". Was there any testing done? Any evidence of diabetes, uncontrolled blood pressure, pre-eclampsia, blood clotting disorder, etc? Having more information would be helpful in answering that question. None-the less extra vigilance during a subsequent pregnancy is required. Early testing, ultrasounds, etc. Good Luck! ...Read more

Miscarriage: In reality the majority of pregnancies end in miscarriage. This common phenomenon usually happens before the female realizes she is pregnant.

Are the chances high of a reoccurant placenta abruption after having one at 32 weeks which resulted in stillbirth?Dr's have said it looked like a fluk
Recurrence rate: The most recent literature is putting recurrence rate between 5-15%. The risk is even higher if the initial abruption was considered to be severe. When the abruption is severe enough to kill the fetus, as in your case, there is a 7% incidence of the same outcome in a future pregnancy, unfortunately. There aren't any studies that demonstrate interventions lower the risk. I wish you the best. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had a full term stillbirth apparently caused by a very small placental abruption. What may have caused this? What are the chances of reoccurrence?
Reocurrence: I am so sorry about the loss of your baby. Some studies have shown recurrence rates to be one in eight, while some have reported a ten fold increase in rate. Whether or not this recurs depends upon the causation and on the presence of the predisposing factors: pregnancy induced hypertension or chronic hypertension, external trauma, cigarette smoking and/or the use of Cocaine and alcohol. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
At 30 wks ultrasound there is a single loop of umbilical cord loosely entwining baby's neck..is there any risk?.what are the chances of stillbirth?
Chances low: It is not uncommon to have the cord around the neck before birth. It may become disentangled naturally. Sometimes during labor if the cord is around the neck the infant may have fetal distress that can be picked up by fetal monitoring during labor. I would not be too worried right now as long os the fetus shows signs of movement. Your OB doc can follow this during the pregnancy. ...Read more
