Why babys heartbeat stopped. what may be the potential cause of it ?

I lost my baby at 29 weeks of pregnancy. I went for my check up on Tuesday, everything is fine with my baby. There was heartbeat and the fluid was normal. On Friday night, I found that my baby was not kicking as he used to kick. When i went for ultrasound , my doctor said that my baby didn t have heartbeat anymore. Can you advise what may be the potential cause my baby heartbeat weak and stop ?

Dear pgjude
welcome to healthcaremagic
If this happens during the 1st trimester, there is usually no known reason why this occurs and this unfortunately happens to a significant number of women. It is NOT the mother fault - that is very important to note.

If babys heart beat stops in the 2nd or 3rd trimester then that might be caused by a cord accident, problem with placenta etc. This is something that would normally be investigated by the doctor.
