How many have seen the heartbeat and went on to miscarry?

Just wondering because I saw my babies heartbeat at 6 1/2 weeks and the Dr. told me that once you see the heartbeat the chances of miscarriage go down and there is a 95% chance you go on to have a healthy baby!

  • I really don't think that seeing the heartbeat has anything to do with the rate of miscarriage.

  • Seeing the heartbeat has nothing to do with health of the baby or inducing a miscarriage.

  • No, after the first twelve weeks the chance of miscarriage goes down. I saw my baby's heart beat and miscarried a week later.
