Nice chart, but the over 35 disclaimer makes me feel sick to my stomach!

Not trying to be a Debbie Downer, but things like this make me cringe. Maybe because my sister is in the “Four or more miscarriages with no live births” category, and her and her husband are both healthy as a horse, and had all the genetic testing done with no feasible explanation for her 4 miscarriages. She miscarried at 12, 8, 10, and 9 weeks. 0-5% chance. Wow.

Anything can happen. Just saying that a chart isn’t a guarantee… but I’m glad that you found some comfort in it!

@MrsMaine: Yep, perfectly healthy husband and myself and yet we lost Moose at 34 weeks and 2 days. One percent chance means nothing to me because I am that one percent. Now, I have like a three percent chance of losing Wombat and I’m almost 39 weeks pregnant. Statistics mean nothing because someone has to make up the bad numbers.

@TheFutureMcBride:  I can’t wait til Wombat is here!  (And did you know that was my nickname in med school?)

@TheFutureMcBride:

Absolutely agree with you…I was a 1 in 1,000 that has a baby with Anecephaly….testing came back that there were no chromosomaly problems with our daughter…it just “happens”. I do not like it when people quote % to me. The fact is bad things happen to people & you just have to pray that you aren’t one of them.

@smileyd: I think it’s always good to have as much knowledge as possible, and if it helps put your mind at ease a little bit, that is great! I, unfortunately, was part of the 5% and miscarried at 10 weeks. And it makes me a little sad to see that I now have an increased risk the next time around.

But the good news is that the numbers are on your side. Yes, someone has to be on the bad side of those numbers, and it is horrible if it does happen, but it’s good to have the knowledge!

GOOD LUCK TO YOU!

I agree w/ HopingToBeaMama.  Yes, someone needs to make up the bad numbers, but it can still be comforting to have the numbers “on your side.”  I would worry more if they weren’t on my side, so it makes sense that I would worry less if they were on my side.  There could be risk in almost anything- we live our lives based on chances.

ETA- and yes, then all you can do is hope.

I looked up statistics too when I was pregnant and found them comforting, especially after we heard a heartbeat.  It helped me decide when to tell people.  Glad you and your baby are doing well and best wishes for continued health.

I got pregnant on the mirenda (IUD) after having it in for 1 year. Doctor said it was in the right place. I’m that % Would not recommend the mirena to anyone!! I’m not the first person I know to get pregnant on it!

Very interesting, I hadn’t seen something like that before.

Kind of comforting, in a strange way. I had one a few years ago and had no idea I was even pregnant–I knew it was common, but not what percent.
