I'm 9 weeks along with twins right now. How likely is a miscarriage after seeing both heartbeats at 8 weeks? My RE said less than 5 percnet, but my OB said less than 10 percent.... Do these percentages include miscarriages due to car accidents, falls, drug use? or do they include pregnancies where you are avoiding bad foods/drugs and nothing bad happens (eg no car accidents, etc)??
I haven't told very many people yet and was wondering if I should wait longer or not.
I am not a professional, but my doctor told me once you see the heartbeat, chances go down to something like 10% and once you get to the second trimester it's even less. I think these percentages may refer to all m/c since often it can not be determined what caused the miscarriage, but again, I'm not sure.
The most important thing is to not stress yourself out about it!! That's not good for the baby. I ruined my entire first trimester worrying about miscarrying, you should be enjoying this time! Good luck
unfortunatley there is always a risk and with twins there is a such thing as the vanishing twin syndrome that dr.s say can happen between 10-15. i was worried about this too.
just relax and enjoy it... because with majority of miscarriages there is nothing that you could have done to prevent it.
4 Kids in 2 1/2 years...
ready to put my body back together!
think of these statistics in a positive light 5-105 chance of m/c actually means a 90-95% chance all will be well i think thats good odds don't you? i read lots of m/c books after my m/c last year and yes after seeing the heartbeat the risk drops a lot, best of luck oh and after my m/c i had a healthy pg and now have a great little buy born in march. best of luck congrats on the twins you will be busy
I lost twins at 24 weeks, it came out of no where. Everything was going fine throughout the whole pregnancy. One night I was laying in bed and started to get cramps, I thought is was going to be diarrhea but it was contractions.
They both lived for 3 hours and died.
any questions, just ask.
(I am at work now, not too much time)
As with all statistics like this, the overall numbers are very low... not worth worrying about. The only time it REALLY matters what the statistics are is if you are the ONE in 200 that it happens to. Otherwise, your statistics were 100% negative. Does that make sense?
