Interesting…I’d never noticed the calculator. I’m 30 weeks now, so it’s pretty reassuring 🙂

My reproductive endocrinologist told me that after you see a heartbeat, your risk of miscarriage goes down to around 5% or less.  Not sure how helpful that is, but it is a stat from a doctor 🙂

@Candy_Nee:  My doctors have told me the same thing! Once you hear a strong heartbeat, the risk of miscarriage falls dramatically.

That’s not to say that there isn’t still a risk. I worked with a girl who was 22 weeks, went into labor and lost the baby. At that point, it’s not considered a miscarriage anymore though.

My dr said 3% after hearing the heartbeat and even lower as you approach 12 weeks. At 12 weeks it’s about 0.5% she said. Definitely GREATLY reduced my anxiety!!

@oxygen20:  

Little LOL on the side:  My husband was reading about pregnancy on Wikipedia the other day and was shocked to read that at 20 weeks your baby still only has a ~50% chance of survival. 

Um — No, honey, that’s if it’s BORN at 20 weeks…   phew!

Not to be a downer but there is actually 0% chance of your baby surviving if born at 20 weeks gestation. 24 weekers are  considered viable and I have seen as low as 23 weekers rescusitated in the delivery room only if they are making a real efford to live because dates can be off a little as well but nothing younger than thatwould be able to survive. I wouldn’t trust wiki on that one!
