gah! I hate I am being so obsessive. I feel like I am so close to being in the clear. I had a really good u/s on Wednesday and baby was moving all around with a good heartbeat (they don't count the bpm at the RE office for some reason). I was 11 weeks 3 days. I still can't help being afraid of another miscarriage again though. I have never made it this far in development before and it is kind of uncharted ground for me. I lost my last baby around 8 weeks, but I didn't know until 12 weeks. Anyway, does anyone know what my chaces of m/c are now?? So sorry I am being obsessive. I really thought I would be able to relax by now

Well, we all know that it's possible to lose a baby at any stage, but I'm pretty sure your chances of miscarriage are pretty low at this stage. Try to let your really good ultrasound ease your mind a bit. You are almost out of the first trimester. Hang in there, girl.
I was actually told that once a good h/b is established (even like at 6 or 7 weeks) the chances of miscarriage are like 8%. Then I heard that the next milestone is 13 weeks when you get out of the first trimester and then the next is 16 weeks. The chances of losing a baby after 16 weeks is like only 1 or 2%.
So try to relax and take it one week at a time. We've all been there. But it really helps to take it one week at a time. It just seems much more managable then thinking of the whole pregnancy. At some point, you'll start to relax some and it becomes more fun rather than stressful. Hang in there!!!!
