  • It used to be "after 12 weeks you risk went down by over 90%" but new studies show that once the heart is beating (18 days of life) the chances go down by like 30% and after 8 weeks the chances go down more than 60 percent.

  • Once you can see the heartbeat, the risk goes way down, and then again once you hit the 13 week mark.

  • I miscarried at what I thought was 12 weeks but the baby actually stopped growing at about 9 weeks...I found out at my 12 week check up there was no heartbeat. I am preggo now and was under close watch by my 12 weeks my doc told me that the chances for miscarry dropped to 20%. keep positive u will probably have false misscary symptoms always check with ur doc if something doesn't feel right
