miscarriage risks drop when? Momlette of 3 Due December 25 (girl); 3 kids; Ohio 25505 posts

When does the risk of miscarriage drop? I had two very healthy pregnancies with no complications but this surrogate pregnancy is worrying me. I've had bleeding and brownish discharge for about a week and it worries me even though docs don't seem worried. Does it take longer with twin pregnancy for miscarriage risks to drop?

Not sure about twins but the miscarriage risk usually drops after 13 weeks when the placenta kicks in and the body has time to recognize if there is something wrong with baby.



Did they check that your progesterone levels are rising properly? There are so many reasons why you could be spotting but progesterone is one of the easiest to diagnose.

Not sure about the risk of twin miscarriage. But when i miscarried my doctor told me that the risk dramatically decreases after 12 weeks. Have you ben cramping or losing pregnancy symptoms? *sticky dust*

I've had some random cramping here or there, I thought it was because of being constipated. I told the docs this as well and they just don't seem concerned. My morning sickness has lessened but I was happy about that. It's still there just not as bad. I had a ultrasound recently and the babies were doing well. Heartbeats in the 170's

It all depends where the cramping is. Your uterus is trying to expand and make room for the babies so there is a little cramping but nothing major. You should feel it around the pelvic area. If its higher than that and its strong cramps, I would be concerned and call the OB.



Good luck and lots of sticky dust!

Then I wouldnt worry. I'm sure you know, the less stress the better, just keep loving those babies for their mommy and daddy!

I'm pretty sure it's the same for twins as it is for one baby. The only thing is that even out of that period and into the other trimesters, there are other complications that can happen with twins that you don't normally deal with with a singleton. I think if you were still bleeding bright red, I'd be much more concerned but I think you're okay. Don't stress and try and keep your feet up! Stay hydrated too!

Aren't you taking injections daily? My sister did a surrogacy and she had to take estrogen weekly and progesterone twice daily. The hormones that are being injected can cause cervical irritation and she bled a lot and made it to 36 weeks with twin boys, both were born healthy at a little over 5lbs.

Well I though that I was having a miscarriage because I was bleeding nothing bad. I know that I didn't pass no clots or have any cramps at all so I know that I didn't lose my baby @ 8 weeks n 6 days. So I have an appointment to see the doctor to make sure that everything is fine with me and my unborn baby. Have any one have a tubal pregnancy? If so what happen with that pregnancy?

Yes I take injections once a day and a few pills every day....I'll be done with them by the end of this month. They never told me the injections could cause cervical irritation...thanks!

the cramping could be from your uterus expanding twice its usual size since your past 2 pregnancies was only one baby. and the discharge is normal, my doc told me it was the left over period blood i had in me. but best of luck to you
