Good morning. I have 2 healthy kids with a miscarriage in between. It was a missed miscarriage with no indication that anything had gone wrong.
I am pregnant again -- 5 weeks -- and am worried about miscarriage again. I'm wondering if anyone can tell me the liklihood of another miscarriage -- specifically a missed miscarriage that I wouldn't know (no bleeding, loss of symptoms, etc.) if i already one.
Your likely hood is still pretty low. You have had one, however you had a healthy baby before and after, so chances are slim. I have a healthy baby boy, then had a missed miscarriage as well, and I'm now about 7-8 weeks pregnant, I'm scared to death about it happening again, but because I've had a healthy baby chances are still slim.
The more kids you have, the more chance of having them, but from what I've heard women who have 4 healthy kids, usually only have one miscarriage, unless they have multiple in a row.
If your worried about it make sure you talk to your dr and see what they can do to help put your mind at ease. For example, my midwife who know's I had a missed miscarriage said if I ever just start to worry like crazy that I can call her and she can do an ultrasound if she has time to help put my mind at ease. Many dr's won't do that from what I heard, but sometimes just talking to them about your concern can help make you feel better.
My midwife told me at my last apt that I've already got my miscarriage out of the way, so I shouldn't worry, lol.
Also, if you didn't have any healthy/live children and had a miscarriage, then your chances would increase, however with having two healthy children, your chances are the same as if you never had one.
