Well I have worried myself sick about miscarriage. I have never had any past problems but it scares the crap out of me. After reading some of these posts I feel a little better. I heard my baby's heart at 8 weeks and it was 180 beats. I've had no spotting at all. So I hope what I read in the lower post about 7 weeks and 120 beats is true!! Because if thats the case I'm in the clear!

Here is an excerpt from the below link:
"About 15% of fertilized eggs are lost before the egg even has a chance to implant (embed itself) in the wall of the uterus. A woman would not generally identify this type of miscarriage. Another 15% of conceptions are lost before 8 weeks gestation. Once fetal heart function is detected in a given pregnancy, the chance of miscarriage is less than 5%."

Well I miscarried in my 11th week last year. I hit the 11 week mark today. However last year I had bleeding and spotting for a whole month prior to actually passing the baby. We never saw a heartbeat. This time around we did (at 9 weeks) and it was 181bpm. I haven't had any spotting and only mild cramping the doctor says is my uterus growing. And given the circumstances surrounding us finding out I was pregnant this year (the day after discovering my husbands near fatal aneurysm) I know this one is going to stick because we really do need something to look forward to.

Well like you have already read they happen before the 12th week I had mine at 6 1/2 and at 7 so mine were early on. However you can have one up til the 12th week and after that you can also but that means other things were wrong and your doctor should had already identified those types of problems with the usual test and also an ultrasound.

I just read in my pregnancy book that the majority of them happen before 8 weeks and at that time the chances decrease each week.

I had mine about 6 1/2-7wks. I didn't know I was pregnant. I just finished my 3rd month of Clomid & starting spotting at a weird time of the month which has never happened. Decided to do a hpt & it was really positive. Went to the Dr. & they said I was m/c. I only lightly spotted after that, no cramping, did not pass anything. I also had a period with that pregnancy. Nothing out of the ordinary.

Apparently many women have miscarriages without realizing it.
I had mine at 10 1/2 weeks and it hurt like hell. the contractions were so strong I was just about threw up. Baby was only 8 1/2 weeks in size tho.
so sad.
It sounds like a lot of m/c happen between 10-11 weeks. No particular week for sure tho. things get so much better after week 12. HOw I long for week 12!!!

I'm no dr. but I've heard when women have them very early in the pregnancy like that, they often don't even realize its a miscarrage. I dunno.

I don't know what particular week that miscarriages occur. I do know that most miscarriages have occured by the 12th week, which is why we are all so excited to get there. I have had 2 miscarriages in the past year. I had one in Nov. 2004 at 10 weeks. I then had another one in April of 2005 at 11 weeks. The bleeding and cramping that went with my miscarriages deffinately couldn't have been mistaken for a heavy period, I thought I was dying at times. Why would your doctor say it sounded like a miscarriage occured without sending you for an ultrasound. I hope everything is alright, but I would definately be getting some answers.

I know we are all nervous and can't wait until the end of our first trimester when we are safer, but what week do most miscarriages occur? A lot of people on this message board talk of past miscarriages, but they do not say what week they happened in. Anyone confortable sharing their story? For the record, I believe I miscarried a month before I concieved, in my 6th week of pregnancy. I didn't think much of the late, heavy period, but when I went for my first pre-natal, I mentioned this to the doctor, he said that it sounds like a miscarriage occured.
