Hi Chris -

Thanks for your reply and the information. I'm so sorry to hear about your first baby - my sister also lost her first child at 41 weeks - a stillbirth with no apparent cause so, although I don't fully understand what it's like because I haven't gone through it myself, I know from watching her cope with it how hard it is to get over something like that.

I plan on printing out the emedicine article and taking it in to my ob-gyn at my next visit!

Thanks for the encouragement - this board is so great and I'm so glad I found it.
