How many have miscarried after seeing the baby's heartbeat?

I have heard from alot of people and read that the rate of miscarriage decreases dramatically after you see the baby's heartbeat. Just wondering how many have went through this.

  • I can't answer personally, but last year I watched one of my very close friends suffer through not one, but two miscarriages. One was at 9 weeks, the other at 11 weeks. Both times she heard the heart beat and assumed everything was fine. So sad.

  • SIL did. Hearing the heartbeat doesn't mean squat, you can hear it as early as 6 weeks and the risk of m/c doesn't go lower til 12+ weeks. SIL m/c at 17 weeks, after already seeing the gender on the u/s.
