Hi everyone,

I was just wondering if any of you knew the % of m/c by week. Like when does a m/c "typically" occur? For example:

There is a 78% chance to m/c anytime b/w 5-7 wks
65% chance b/w 8-10 wks
and so on...

I'm curious as to where I stand on my journey. Last pg, I m/c'd at 8 wks. So around this time last pg I was cramping, spotting, etc This time, nothing! Which is great of course, but I still worry. I realize that a m/c can still occur b/c I'm still so early, but I'm sooo wanting to pass that 8 wk mark, you know?

Anyone have anything to add/share?

I am not sure but I my dr told me that m/c is very common and that most women go through it at least once in there childbearing years. I had mine in the second trimester which is less common. I think that you have a good chance of being okay though. Good luck!

This is exactly what I was looking for when I originally posted this topic. Someone in the Dec DDC posted this link there.

Just thought I'd share.

I read the link but I thought I'd share what my doctor told me with you anyway. he said that 35% of all pregnancies end in miscarriage, most are very early, and about 70% of those are due to chromosonal abnormalities. Most women never knew they were ever pregnant. The 12 week mark though seems to be the magic number. That he would have clinics where the women would come in before the standard 12 week appointment and they would do early ultrasounds just to make sure hearts were beating and 1 in 10 would have a missed miscarriage. After 12 weeks the likelihood of miscarriage drops dramatically.
