  • ya know i made the mistake of giving a close friend false hope a few months back. all i can say is every day it gets better and better... your odds of carrying successfully this time improve with each day! :) congrats and i hope all goes well for you

  • That heart rate sounds really good to me! I think at 12 weeks the miscarriage risk drops dramatically! I would go ahead and let myself get happy about it. You made it this much further than the last pregnancies so it's a milestone. Try not to stress and worry too much about it. I know the feeling of worrying after miscarriage! Good Luck!

  • I lost my baby at 29 weeks and I'm 16 weeks pregnant now. It's a really scary feeling but we're being positive about it. that's really all you can do, worrying won't help the situation. If your christian then talk to God about it... I know some people may think that is stupid but I don't. It really has made peace in my heart and I believe this my baby will be healthy and not be stillborn. You really just need to find peace in your heart..... Just thank God for every week that goes by. :)

  • After twelve weeks the risk goes down significantly. 171 is a good strong heartbeat. Of course you can feel happy.
