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.
