I am new to this forum, so I apologize if this topic has already been addressed.
I lost my precious son to SIDS in April 2012. He was a desperately wanted and very loved and treasured baby. (conceived through IVF) He died very unexpectedly. He suddenly stopped breathing while in my arms, for no apparent reason. We were at the pediatrician's office a few hours earlier, where the doctor said that he was healthy, and she had no concerns. I still struggle to understand what happened. No family history of sudden death on either side, we don't smoke, I breast fed exclusively.
I am now pregnant again. (naturally this time, go figure) I am very excited, but also very nervous. I worry about every little thing that could go wrong.
Has anyone experienced anything like this, or have any advice on managing the anxiety?
I am so sorry you had to go through this. I have no advice but hopefully bumping this up will get you some advice and answers from people who have had similar unfortunate experiences. All I can say is to try not worry, I know its hard, but the added stress, worry, and anxiety isn't good for your baby, you, or your family.

If you feel you need answers to get a closure, I would seriously look into vaccines. I don't know if your son received any vaccines that day or a week or two before, but there is enough evidence to show a very possible correlation between vaccines and SIDS. Mothering.com forum has a wonderful Vaccination sub-forum. Some of the moms on that forum had their kids injured or killed by vaccines. Also check out this link, it is linked to many studies from around the glob showing a potential danger of vaccines http://www.healthfromscratch.com/vaccines-safety-info.html
