  • Good question. I'm going to say there is probably not a connection of miscarriages and stillborns from your mother to you, but I can't say for certain. I do know that my grandma had 2 miscarriages and hemmoraged really bad after my mom, and my mom had 3 healthy pregnancies.

  • My pregnancies are nothing like my mothers. I've had 2 miscariages. With my daughter I had high blood pressure and morning sickness. With this pregnancy I've had morning sickness and the end of it is totally different from the one with my daughter. My mom never had any morning sickness with either of her pregnancies and she never had miscariages either. The only thing that was similar is that with me her water broke and with my daughter my water broke before labor even started. I dont think that it passes down from mother to daughter but still let your doctor know anyway just in case.
