  • A miscarriage is common until week 12. not sure if "common" is the right word. But most women have a miscarriage in the first 12 weeks. After those, the risk is lower, yes.

    you shouldnt worry at all though. Because that would drive you nuts. I had a miscarriage a few years ago, when i was already 15weeks along. I went to the OB for a reg. check up 3 weeks after the last check-up. The last check-up everything was perfect and 3 weeks later my OB told me that she cant find a heartbeat of the baby anymore. The pregnancy with my daughter was terrible because i was always worried that something would happen again. I was always afraid ect. But i was worried for nothing. Everything went well and now my little girl is 17 months old.

    So, when you say everything is alright, then dont worry about anything. Dont drive yourself nuts over something that maybe/probably wont happen anyway. Take good care of yourself.

  • both of my m/c were around 9 weeks. Lots of people in my support groups had then even at 19-22 weeks. It does no good to worry though. You can't stop it if it starts. But pay attention to what you eat and drink and dont do anything that is known to cause a m/c. Chances are you'll be fine. But it can't be for sure til baby is in your arms.
