worries about misscarries

Does anyone know up to how many weeks you are most likely to miscarry? I'm 7 weeks and I want to know when I'll be out of the woods.

Re: worries about misscarries

Congratulations on being pregnant! Your first trimester is the most crucial! Up throught week 12. and then i hear the 4th and 5th can be just as crucial but not as. I haven't quite made it past 12 wks. so be careful. Buy the book "what to know when your expecting" it answers lots of questions for mom's to be.
Good luck!

Re: worries about misscarries

Thanks for responding. Congrats on your pregnancy as well. I just worry about it so much because I don't feel like I'm the most healthy person on the face of the planet.
Another question for you: Did you experience any sort of heart pounding in your first trimester?

Re: worries about misscarries

Congrats!! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/dance.gif"> I just wanted to say something quick. Another good book..doesn't have as much medical advice..more a practicle look at preg. and other womens opinions and experiences(which I found most helpful)...The Girlfriends Guide To Pregnancy. I read the other book mentioned in the other post..it was great too but it never answered my real burning questions that you are too afraid to ask your doc!!

Re: worries about misscarries

The Girlfriends Guide To Pregnancy is an awesome book. I have never laughed so hard at times reading it. It is a definite must for a first time mom.

As for your question about M/C, supposedly once you see a heartbeat or hear it on the doppler, chances of miscarriage drop drastically. It goes down to something like 2-3 %. Unfortunately I miscarried after we heard the heartbeat, so I was in that small percentage. Try not to worry. If it happens usually it is because something was wrong with the fetus. I have been worrying this whole time with this pregnancy and I'm 13 weeks now. I am starting to show a little though, and have felt what feels like a little twitch inside from time to time, so I am praying everything is progressing as it should. I haven't been consumed by worry, just it's on my mind. Congratulations on your pregnancy, and I hope it works out.
