when does the "safe zone" begin?


i've heard that at a certain point in your pregnancy you pass over into a safer time with less chance of miscarriage. when does this begin? is it after the first trimester ends?

They usually say its after 12 weeks drops to around 1-2%!
Although if you've had a scan and the sonographer found he babys heart beat they say the chances of miscarriage arealos very low.

I agree, most people say its either around 12 weeks when the placenta takes over or when you reach the 2nd trimester but I think everyone is different when it comes to feeling their pregancy is "safe".

I just felt all along that this baby would stick but I still had my moments of worrying up until about 15 weeks.

Most books I've read said around the 12 week mark.

Everyone I've spoken to says approx 12 weeks until the "safe" time, of course, having said that, I'm sure that the worry about it never truly goes away....
