I had a really touch and go pregnancy with my middle child... starting with heavy bleeding in the first tri, and then more heavy bleeding in the second tri because my placenta was low and a portion abrupted from the uterine wall. Because of all the issues and the fact that I had a previous m/c with my first pregnancy, I did not have a lot of hope for that pregnancy for the first four months or so... I was told it could go either way. However, dd hung in there and was fine- she's now a healthy six year old who has no idea how many times mom landed in the ER when she was pregnant with her! Sometimes fears are just fears. HTH a bit.
