Miscarrige Risk Dropped?

Sep 29th, 2010, 18:15 PM   #1
 
I just wanted to know if any one is clued up on miscarriges and whether or not my risk has dropped yet?

Im 10 weeks and 5 Days and had no bleeding and about 1 weeks worth of cramping throughout the whole pregnancy and thats it?

Could I still miscarry?

I am no expert, but I do know once a heartbeat is detected the chances reduce by ?% and when you get past 13weeks the chances reduces by quite a big %
I know I wont relax completely till the 14 week mark as you do still hear of miscarriages as late as 12+6
I hope I havent said anything you didnt wanna hear and as I said I am NO expert, its just from things I have read here and then because of my fear of mc xxxx

I read up quite abit on this during tri 1 as I have had a previous mc. Once you get to 12 weeks it's something like a 5% chance then when you've heart the hb it's 1%. But then when I got to 24 weeks I kept reading the statistics on if a baby was born at that week!! Your always be worried throughout the whole pregnancy but everything seems fine with you so try to relax! I know easier said than done!! x x

I constantly worry about mc and I am very early on so have a long way to go. I get anxious very easy and actually feel like the worry of miscarrying is taking over the excitement of being pregnant. I know its only normal to worry of mc but I think I am obssessing over it. Im thinking I might get a private scan at around 9 weeks to keep my mind at ease. Does anyone else worry this much?? xx

Dont worry, I think we all worry ourselves silly. I had a private scan at 8 weeks, and everything was fine, but now, im just as worried as I was to begin with - grr, cant win!

Im hoping that with each week I get through, the risk of mc drops each week - its so hard just taking it bit by bit, and I know a person who has just been to the 12 wk scan, and baby had no heartbeat - plus, you obviously read all the awful stories on here, which make me so sad when i see them.....

Just gotta keep plodding along everyone! x

Thats why ive decided not have a private scan too early because if I had it too early I would just start worrying again. You just assume when you become pregnant that it will be amazing and exciting, I wasnt quite prepared for the huge worry of mc. Im just going to try take it week by week and stop stressing. xx

I did worry alot after I had spotting for the first to the point that I was getting miserable. It's normal to worry but I've really had to relax more because it wasn't doing me any good. It's a horrible thought but if something is going to happen there isn't much I can do about it. So I'm just trying to enjoy being pregnant and not wish the days away lol. It's not easy and I think it's totally normal to worry. Just try not to let that worry take over. As Lacey's mum said - easier said than done but lots of people have said to me to try and enjoy my pregnancy

I've always heard 12 weeks is where the chance is significantly lower, I think that's why that's when people often choose to tell their friends and family

Girls, Im in the same boat, Although I had a scan on Monday at 9 weeks 2 days and everything was fine, Im still worried about the coming weeks! I have my 12 week scan on 15th which Im looking forward to but also petrified incase I mc before or have mmc and they no longer fine a heartbeat. I thought trying to get pregnant not knowing if I could was hard but this is something else!

Im going to try and stop reading so many stories and try and relax a bit more now, I do have a 2 day meeting in York Fri/Sat so hopefully that will keep my mind off things!

Lets keep our chins up girls! (the worrier says!) xx

I'm exactly the same, the thought of MC enters my head everyday and I must say it makes it difficult to get too excited. Mother-in-law said yesterday that she'd already picked up a few bits for the baby which she saw on sale but I feel it's like tempting fate almost. Have another 6 weeks to go before my scan which seems like a lifetime....

We really are all in the same boat. I am obsessing over it too. I am constantly agonizing over whether I still have significant symptoms or not, or whether I am just bloated from just eating too much lol! We're not telling people until we are sure as we can be that everythings ok, I'm thinking about 6months

Hello ladies - I think throughout your pregnancy every woman finds something to worry about... I certainly did first time round. I am hoping that this pregnancy will be a bit more relaxing for me, but I doubt it.

In my first pregnancy with Isabella I worried constantly from the moment I found out I was pregnant 3+4!!! onwards about a MC. Then at 9 weeks I had a private scan, saw the lovely little heartbeat and relaxed a bit.

I think once you see a heartbeat the risk of MC drops by a huge percentage, as high as 95% or something like that.

You worry in pregnancy, and then you worry even more when they are born!!! The life of a parent.
