  • I had 2 perfect preg...then 2 mc (one at 7 wks, one at 13 wks)...then a healthy baby. I am now preg again and STILL worried. Not telling anyone till after 13 wks!

  • I don't think there's a cut and dry answer to this. I had 4 healthy pregnancies. Then a miscarriage (at 6 wks) and turned right around and got pregnant again...I'm 14 far so good.

  • I would wait until 12 weeks before you tell anyone, I had an ectopic pregnancy, then 2 miscarriages and am carrying this one to term (31 weeks two days ago). Try not to stress about it and just relax, I KNOW easier said than done.

  • Don't stress yourself out. It's easier said than done. Just focus on being healthy for the sake of your unborn baby. You'll be just fine. Miscarriage rates are only about 25%. Go buy some good pregnancy books to keep your mind occupied.
