I am 12 weeks 3 days pregnant today, I have some dull cramping now and then and am worried it has to do with a miscarriage. I had a missed miscarriage before at 7 weeks. We saw the baby at 11 weeks 5 days and baby was doing good. I have my next visit only at 16 weeks. What are the chances for missed miscarriage after 12 weeks? Please help.
Didn't want to read and run I'm sure that your baby is fine seeing your baby and heartbeat at that stage considerably reduces your chance of miscarriage! I have had 3 scans so far due to bleeding and when my next scan is due I get really acres and think it's not going to be there my next scan is Wednesday and I'm starting to get really nervous!
It's just like they say as soon as you get that positive test you are a mommy and the worry starts I font think it's will ever stop so I think we just need to get used to it. Good luck with your pregnancy xxxx
I am having the same dull cramping. Everyone said it is the round ligament pain because at 12 weeks your uterus starts to really expand.I went for my scan at 12 weeks and everything was fine. The doctor said the chances of miscarriage after a healthy scan at 12 weeks is less than 1%. I know its in our nature to worry but trust me, its better for the baby for your to relax.
Hey, didnt want to read and run, a mmc can occur at any time, it's the name tgey give to when the baby dies before you have any symptoms of a mc... I had a mmc at 14 weeks last Jan, but I wanted to tell you that it sounds like you have nothing to worry about! There are 2 big milestones that you already passed, the first is seeing the heart beat at 6 weeks, and the next is after 8 weeks, they say once you see your baby healthy after 8 weeks measuring the right dates and all, your chance of mc drops to about 4%! or less! So since you saw your baby at 11 weeks and all was good, I would say you are just having growing pains! but i would never doubt a mothers intuition, if you feel something is wrong, go talk to your doc! Nothing like professional reassurance! But I would say you have nothing to worry about!
I have similar concerns to you. I've had 2 mmcs before and am now waiting for my 16 week appointment which seems a lifetime away!
Most of my 1st tri symptoms have died off. I am now hanging onto the symptoms I have left/new ones that have arrived - namely heartburn!
After you have seen a baby at 11 weeks, measuring to dates will all things present & correct, the chances of it dying are very very low. Babies don't just die in there. Our mmcs happened for a reason, probably genetic. As you've see your baby quite late on in 1st tri and all was well, then I would say you are pretty much guaranteed to be fine from here on in. Any genetic problems would have reared their head by now.
Do you still have your 1st tri symptoms/any symptoms?
Thanks for all your responses. I called the doctors office and they did not seem too concerned about my dull aches. I have few symptoms but not as severe as before. I hope everything is good with baby. I do not have a doppler but is there any other way I can reassure the baby is doing good?
