I have done all the possible test such as ANA, cardiolipin, TORCH, 2 months after stillbirth. just 4 days before stillbirth doctor had suggested complete bed rest to me and said that liquor is up to 6cm approximately.

Hi Tanu,
Having a stillbirth once does not predispose you to have a still birth again. But given this fact, I would suggest that you start taking folic acid supplements and get ultrasound done every 4 weeks starting from the 6th week.
Also, maintain a daily fetal movement count. You should be counting atleast 4-6 kicks per hour although it varies with each mother and baby. Make a note of your normal fetal kick count and if you notice a decrease or change in pattern of this, report it to your physician immediately.
Also, keep a tab on your blood pressure and blood sugar levels.
You may consider speaking to another gynaecologist at a tertiary level centre.
