I was wondering if anyone ( I know there are cases, just wondering how common) has had a miscarriage after seeing their baby's healthy heartbeat? I had a miscarriage in October, and they never found a heartbeat. I am now eleven weeks along, and have seen my baby's heartbeat twice now (and what a beautiful sight). My husband thinks we are pretty much out of the woods now, and I am just still so worried that something may go wrong, which I am sure is a normal emotion.
I myself have never been in that situation, but I know of cases where it's happened. Normally after a heartbeat is seen the chance of miscarriage drops drastically. (I think it's like 5% or something. Can't remember) Keep hope that all will go well. You're close to going into the second trimester and at that point chances of miscarriage drop even more.
I had a miscarriage 5 years ago that was my 3rd miscarriage and I saw my baby and heard the heartbeat in week 13 and found out at my next appt. (4 wks later) that my baby had died. The worst miscarriage I had faced thus far. We had one healthy child between miscarriages, and decided not to press our luck again. We biologically can't have anymore, because that last miscarriage felt a little "below the belt". We are very happy with our only child (7 yr. old) now and don't feel the need to replace the ones we lost. Took me a long time to accept that, but it's all okay now. Don't fret... take some deep breaths. Some people are an exception to the percentages and some are a part of them. Keep yourself healthy and do all you can for your growing baby.
Thanks to all for your advice. I have been fortunate with two healthy pregnancies, and then lost my last one, so now, I am really nervous. I have been experiencing mild cramping for the past three days too, so even more cause for concern since I don't recall experiencing this with my first two. I will try to relax and let nature take its course though. Thanks again.
