How likely am I to miscarry a second time? Due July 13; 1 child; 2 angel babies; Illinois 753 posts
status 10th May '13

I am terrified, scared shitless if you will, of every little thing.
I miscarried Feb of 2012 at 6-7 weeks.
I keep researching, constantly checking websites, looking at those little week by week growth charts and "how's mom doing?" posts.. anything to help me get my mind off of miscarrying. But, I still catch myself tearing up at night at the thought that I may lose this one, too.
I just want to know, I know the percent for miscarrying before 8 weeks is somewhere 25-30%.. What is the percentage for after 9 weeks?
13 weeks? So on? Anything to get my mind away from these awful thoughts..

I'm not sure after 9 weeks, I'm sure it is lower. But I know after 13 it's like almost nothing.



Just found this site and it may help you.

Have you seen the heartbeat yet? After you see it, the chances go way down.



I miscarried 2 times and then went on to have 2 children.

Buy yourself a fetal Doppler. Get it used so its less money. We found the HB for my sister in law at 9 wks. It took a little while but shed use it when her mind would get the best of her. She miscarried in sept, she is 30wks now with her second pregnancy.

These websites are wonderful.



I've had two overall ultrasounds and the last one was at 7.9 weeks..
the heartbeat was 140 and the yolk sac was easily seen...
Thank you for this ladies..
I've just got to stop worrying myself silly

You need to try to relax. I had two miscarriages 3 months apart and 3 months after that got pregnant again. With my 3rd pregnancy I just said to myself whatever will happen will happen regardless of how much I stress... That pregnancy resulted in my daughter. I'm now 9 weeks and trying very hard to not feel the way you're feeling. Everything happens for a reason and positive thinking can do wonders!

Chances are a lot lower once a heart best has been seen. I'm sure everything will be fine momma :)
