There are many causes of stillbirths. These include genetic abnormalities, diabetes, lack of oxygen in labour and many more. Unless there is something heriditary, you should not be at greater risk for stillbirths if everything has gone normally thus far.

I hope your doctor knows that it "runs" in the family so that your doctor take extra care of you.

I know that you should be very nervous at the moment and i would be too. If I am you, I would speak to my doctor and rather go for a c-section at 38 weeks to make sure that all is well. If you don't want a c-section and you have to wait for labour I think your nerves are going to "kill" you and I have heard more stilborn babies are with normal birth than with c-section.

Please speak to your doctor regarding your problem and maybe she can see you more often the last few weeks and also help
