Friend recently had MC at 8 weeks. I know from the reading I did 3 years ago how very common MC is, but was just wondering, did I read that it's LESS common if you have already had a baby, cos your body has already been through a pregancy once before and is therefore more used to dealing with it?????
Wouldn't it be nice to be able to enjoy the first 12 weeks without this worry
I think the stat you are thinking of is the one that first pregnancies often miscarry and more often than not it's before the mum to be realises she's pregnant. I can't remember where I read that though.
The fact that you've successfully produced before is on your side, secondary infertility and secondary miscarriage can happen but the first doesn't seem to apply to you and the latter one can do nothing about anyway, so BE HAPPY you are going to have a baby!
I always thought the same as you GCG - I had 2 mc before my kids after TTC for almost 2 years and then went on to have 3 successful pregnancies, albeit with bleeding for the first 3 months. Congratulations and enjoy!
GCG - I was told by the hospital that MMC was almost always detectable by a rapid plummet in HCG level within the first eight weeks of pregnancy - so I did regular tests when I got nervous and as long as I could see that dark blue line, I started to breathe again.
Well my temperature was a steady 37 throughout except for when I had a cold so I don't think so no. TBH though I could always tell I was still pregnant because of the amount of globby CM hitting my gussets (sorry TMI but true ).
