What are my chances of having a healthy pregnancy and baby after having a stillbirth of unknown causes?

I had a stillborn son, two years ago. We don't know why it happened. I am trying to convince my husband to have another baby, but I also have my own fears. I mean, what if it happens again? Tell me what are my chances of having another stillbirth. What are my chances of having a healthy pregnancy and subsequent birth and baby? Any information, not opinions, are appreciated. Please and thank you in advance. Does anyone know if my next pregnancy will be categorized as high risk or anything, since my stillbirth?

I can't imagine what it must have been like to lose a child... One option that is available to you is preconception counseling. Ask your OB if they can do that or you. If not, find another! In preconception counseling, your OB will sit down with you, review your history, and perhaps even do some blood work. Because of your loss, any subsequent pregnancies will be categorized as high risk. That doesn't necessarily mean much more than a few extra visits and some extra ultrasounds, though. You also would not be able to deliver at an "all natural" birthing center. I hope this information helps you... Book an appointment! Maybe sitting down with a doctor will help to ease your husband's concerns, as well as your own.
