I was 32 weeks pregnant and my baby weight was low. I was advised by my doctor to have a protein rich diet and complete bed rest. But on 14th December I couldn't feel baby movement. The doctor did an ultrasound and baby heart beat was absent. I had do be induced. I am in a state of depression and my doctor could not provide any reason for this. Can any expert help me on this Matter.

This is a very upsetting thing for any mom and any family. In most cases it is very difficult to predict the actual cause and I can understand that you need answers for closure. Tests must have been done on the fetus to see if a cause could be identified but since you haven't been told it means that the tests did not give any answers. In most cases the blood flow from the placenta to the baby is affected and this can also result in fetal demise. It is best to move on and involve yourself in other activities, heal and recover and work towards the next pregnancy after due guidance from your doctor. It can help to see a counselor to help you come to terms with all the emotions you and your partner are going thru.
