chances of 2nd trimester miscarriage


Posted by Lotty on May 04, 1999 at 13:15:46
I am at the end of week 20 of a healthy pregnancy.  I have not health conditions at all and ultrasound at 17 weeks showed everything looked great.  Amnio came back normal.  I can feel some very subtle movement of the fetus but not much.  I know many women worry about the fetus and I worry alot at times.  My question is, how common is it for the fetus to die at this point in a pregnancy that has seemed normal?  Thanks.

Congratulations on doing well so far! The chances of miscarriage are extremely low (certainly much less thn 5%) for a women who is at your point in pregnancy.
I wish you continued good luck with your pregnancy.
