DH and I are planning on TTC again we have a 5 year old and 2.5 year old both girls. I heard that almost every girl has a misscarriage at sometimein their life. Is that true? I been pregnant 2 times wqith 2 live births.My grandma had 6 kids. Her first was handycapped he just passed away at 30 something a few years ago (she gave him up for adotion so never met him) she has 5 other kids her 3rd baby she had a miscarriage. With my mom she had me, my sister a miscarriage and then my brother. So my mom and grandma both had a miscarriage with baby #3 so what are my chances? Also DH's mom had a still born with her first will that affect me in anyway? Not sure why she had a stillborn. I am just afraid something is going to happen because mom and grandmas 3rd was a miscarriage.

It depends on why your mom and grandmother had miscarriages. Women today know earlier and for sure they are pregnant with home pregnancy tests. Cheap, easy pregnancy tests have only been around for 35 years.
My family has a genetic disease and there has been lot of miscarriages. I had 3. I have no aunts, uncles or obviously cousins. My grandmothers had multiple miscarriages.
In a family without a history of genetic disease it doesn't matter if your relatives had miscarriages. Just because other women in your family had a miscarriage with baby #3 that doesn't mean you are at risk for a miscarriage with baby #3.
