Miscarriage

If you've had one, was it after you heard your baby's heart beat. I'm currently 6w4d, and I had a loss in October. I'm spotting just like before. I heard the HB then the next week, baby was gone. Someone tried to tell me that if I hear the HB, there is only a 5-10% chance of miscarrying. So now I'm afraid I'm never going to have any sort of relief.

I have never heard of the 5-10% chance of miscarrying after you heard the heartbeat....I've heard my baby's heart beat a few times before I miscarried. Sorry you're going through this.

  I started my miscarriage the day of my first OB appointment so I never heard the heartbeat.

Thank you. Sorry for your loss as well. I don't even know that I am miscarrying, just reaching for hope that I'm not since it was the same as before, but that heartbeat statistic really has me panicky!

Mine was after I heard his heartbeat. I was 16 weeks and 4 days.

Eta: Nothing was wrong with him I just had an incompetent cervix. My next pregnancy resulted in an early but healthy child. Good luck to you!

When I lost my DD I was out of the "danger zone" when she passed. We'd heard the heartbeat, seen a thriving baby, and still lost her.

Sometimes it just happens.

It's okay.  I was sad and I still think about the what ifs, but I already had 3 healthy kids at that point so I focused more on that fact.  I'm sorry for your loss.

That's how we were, too. I was 14 weeks. I'm just a nervous wreck and don't want to be.
