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.
