  • not mine but every pregnancy has a 1 in 5 chance of miscarrying so 20 percent....Just lay down and relax, put your feet up, start drinking water and take ur prenatals....relaxing and drinking water is probably the best thing u can do....If you have a hubby or SO around use them to ur advantage and dont even gedt out of bed if u may be miscarrying and theres any chancde of survival for the baby

  • Sorry hun. I know it is scary. Are they checking your hcg levels too? They should take 2 blood draws, 48 hours apart and see if the numbers are raising, or dropping. It is a much better indicator of how the pregnancy is going than ultrasound if you are doing it before the heart starts to beat.

  • I have not been in your situation, but I am sorry that you are going through it. The best thing you can do, is relax and stay calm, like Dom123123 said. Stress has actually been proven to increase risks of miscarriages so just try and relax as much as you can, eat healthy, drink plenty of fluids, take your vitamins, get good rest, and try not to over do it. It may help, and it may not. Miscarriages are actually very common and usually happen naturally, meaning most of them are not caused by something the mother did or didn't do, so if you do end up having a miscarriage, just know that it unfortunately is a natural thing and that it was not your fault, and keep on trying for that baby! Good luck to you. I hope everything goes well.

  • I started having heavy bleeding at 9 weeks of this pregnancy and it went on till 18 weeks but not always heavy mostley some here and there but the first time I bleed it was heavy and I went through like 3-4 pads in an hour, but my cervix was closed and baby had a heartbeat. I found out I had a hemmorhage. It lasted till 18weeks cause for a little bit my placenta was blocking the blood from getting out so the blood stayed where it was and didn't come out alot till the placenta moved. I'm almost 37weeks now and am great!! I had a few episodes during that time that the blood was alot and scared me and they told me I was having a threatened miscarrage.
