Thanks for your query. Intrauterine deaths are nightmares, I can understand your situation. There are many causes for IUD(intrauterine death), but there are few situations where cause cannot be found out.. Because of blisters I feel the baby would have died of INFECTION like Toxoplasma, Rubella ...etc.....

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow ups.
Wish you good health.
