If you are 12 weeks the risk of miscarriage goes way down. Also you would have cramping and bleeding. I think you are fine :)

I had a miscarriage in April and I had no bleeding or cramping I didn't find out until I walked into my 10 week appointment and I was still showing I was pregnant on pregnancy test up u til 2 months after my miscarriage but if you are 12 weeks you should be fine its the first 10 that are the hardest. Best of luck

What she is referring to is a missed miscarriage I had one last October but they only occur in 1% of pregnancies. No need to freak out. And yes you can still have pregnancy symptoms, show up on tests, and everything because the placenta hasn't been expelled is still releasing hormones even though the baby is no longer alive. It's very sad but does happen. I do not think you need to street or worry about this though like I said after 12 weeks risk of miscarriage of any type goes down less than a 1% chance.

Taking a pregnancy test will not help since your pregnancy hormones only decrease slowly after a miscarriage, not disappear.  Your gonna be fine.  I miscarried once and I was bleeding by 4 weeks and praying I would be the 50% who's baby makes it.  Don't stress about something that you don't know is true.  Your baby will be fine:-)
