No Miscarriage

This is my first time pregnant. I read everywhere about women ttc and how hard it is for some. Im scared because it seems like I always read about miscarriage. Is there women out there that had healthy pregnancies that never miscarried before? Please let me know so I can have hope.

What can I do next?

I was 36 when I got pregnant. I have never had a miscarriage. I was also very lucky to have an uneventful pregnancy. No morning sickness, no scares of any kind. I now have a very healthy 16 month old little man who runs like crazy!!

Relax and enjoy being pregnant.

Yes! I have 2 beautiful children--3 and 6 years old. I got pregnant with both on the first try, and I had perfect pregnancies with only mild nausea for a few months. Try not to worry and just be so thankful you get to avoid all the sadness that comes with miscarriage and not conceiving.

My first pregancy resulted in the birth of a beautiful baby girl, now 4 years old. I've never had a miscarriage. Try to concentrate on the beauty of the miracle happening inside you and not on the possibility of something you can't control. We all know pregnancy comes with plenty of things to worry about already. Why add more?
Best Wishes!

I know lots of people who never had miscarriages and had healthy pregnancies. I think only about 1/4 of pregnancies end in miscarriages, and a lot of those, the women never even knew they were pregnant, it happened before they knew, so that means probably only about 1/8 of people who knew they were pregnant have miscarriages! Don't worry, be happy about it, and congrats!

I've had 2 healthy pregnancies and never had a miscarriage. My mom had 5 without a miscarriage and none of my close friends have had miscarriages. It doesn't happen to everyone.

Congratulations. I totally know where you're coming from, there are a lot of scary stories out there and I remember reading them as well and had to stop because I just wanted to keep positive thoughts in my head. Remember, people don't usually post a story about how everything went just fine and normal, they post when they need help coping or understanding, so it's normal that there are more of those types of posts out there. And, they're good for others going through the same issues.

Because you asked for people to answer about no miscarriages, I can tell you that even at the 'ripe old age of 38' I was able to get pregnant and carry our son without a miscarriage and it was my first time getting pregnant. I had serious heart/blood pressure issues due to a tumor that wasn't discovered until I was very far along, had to go off my heart meds, etc. and still had a very healthy and good pregnancy. The only issue was at the end when the doctors decided it would be best for me to have a c-section 3 weeks before my due date.

So, that should help you relax and know that there are people out there who have had a baby on their first pregnancy without a miscarriage and even those who are considered high risk.

Congratulations and try to savor each moment.

p.s.-it's normal to worry about your child, and the worry doesn't end once he/she is born just so you know. I feel like a crazy person sometimes imagining the all the bad stuff I feel I have to protect him from, but it's normal and so long as you don't go overboard, know that this kind of protective love is your normal mothering instincts kicking in.

It is scary what you read about miscarriages. I have one child, no miscarriages (I was always worried about it, pretty much the whole pregnancy, that something would happen to him). I have many friends who have 1 or 2 children, and none of them have had miscarriages either.

Congrats & good luck on your pregnancy. I had one pregnancy & one healthy baby. I believe my obstetrician told me that around 20% of pregnancies miscarry. So it's good to be cautious, but also not impossible to have a healthy pregnancy. I was also VERY worried early during my pregnancy about miscarriage. I think it's normal.

Good luck!

Most pregnancies do not end in miscarriage. And once you have heard a heartrate the likelihood of miscarriage goes down even more. You just see a lot of questions about it because there is not a whole lot of reason to write in and ask questions about the very uneventful first couple of months of a healthy pregnancy. I'd bet there are about as many morning sickness questions on here as there are miscarriage questions, and that is really the only thing to ask about at that point. Don't stress out too much, and congratulations on your pregnancy!

it sounds like you are getting the impression that most women have a miscarriage before delivering a healthy baby? NOT SO! i only know a handful of people who have had miscarriages, and i know TONS of happy first time moms. someone has definitely been giving you completely wrong information. unless you have medical issues there is no reason to assume you will miscarry? maybe i am reading this wrong.....

Congrats and try to relax. Worrying is perfectly normal, but won't help you. Just enjoy being pregnant and take care of yourself and that little baby you are growing! Best wishes to you mommie!

I did not have a miscarriage. I am 16 and have a 10 month old son.... As long as you do what your suppose to do during your pregnancy than you should be okay....
I didn't find out that i was pregnant til i was 6.5 almost 7 months along and when i found out i had the biggest worries because i had several tests done while being pregnant and i thought that it would of affected my son but it didn't he is a happy, healthy little one.... I had several xrays done while being pregnant several mri's and die injected mri's and several blood work testings done and nothing threw a red flag up...
don't worry do what your told by your ob dr and you should have a healthy happy normal little boy or girl

Hi T.,
Congratulations. ! Enjoy the miracle of pregnancy and specially the 1 st one. It is amazing to see how your body will change during those 9 months. My advice to you is read to be informed, but not overread, because that will make you only worried. I had a wonderful and healthy pregnancy, without even being scared of miscarriage.If you eat healthy, walk and exercise lightly i don't think there will be any problem.Enjoy that time to the fullest.

3x pregnant for me with no miscarriages

My wife and I had 8 kids and no miscarriages. My mother never had a miscarriage. I have 8 daughters or daughters-in-law and only two of them have had miscarriages. One daughter-in-law's miscarriage was because of her unhealthy lifestyle (my opinion).

If your mother and grand mothers haven't had any miscarriages, you have a good chance of not having a miscarriage (my non-medically based opinion). From what I've read over the years, the healthier you live, the less likely you are to have a miscarriage. ((All of the above statements are based on my life experiences and reading. I have only had first aid training, am not a doctor or nurse.))

Good luck to you and yours.

3 pregnancies. 3 babies. I take really good care of myself. I eat well, don't take the synthetic vitamins that the OBs give, drink lots of water, get 80 grams of protein in each day while pregnant and have glorious unassisted births with the largest being over 10 pounds and not even a tear.

My mom had 8 miscarriages. I was her 9th pregnancy and my brother was her 10th. She started getting adjusted regularly by a chiropractor about a year before she got pregnant with me, as well as became a vegetarain for financial reasons. She never took Clomid or any of the other drugs.

Breathe. It will be fabulous.

I am pregnant (4 days over due) with my 4th child... Never had a miscarriage... My mom had 5 kids... No miscarriages... My older sister... 4 kids, no miscarriages... I am not sure about an actual statistical percentage... But I would have to say that the rate of healthy pregnancy is much higher than those that do have miscarriages...

Having a miscarriage is a fear that ALL women who are ttc or pregnant have. You hear alot about them because it is a fear thing... Just like you hear more about the person bit by a shark than the THOUSANDS a day who wern't...
Every story you hear about a mom loosing a baby thru miscarriage breaks your heart a bit even if you did not know the person.

My grandmothers, All of my Aunts, My mother, My mother in law, my sister, my sister inl aw, and all of my neighbor moms, none of us had ever had a miscarriage. We spoke about how fortunate we all were..

Rest your mind. Miscarriages do happen, but you need to keep positive thoughts.

Many, MANY women, including myself, have healthy pregnancies and have no history of miscarriage. You are simply freaking yourself out for nothing. Miscarriages are not the norm.

It's normal when you're pregnant to worry about something going wrong, but do yourself a favor and don't expect it.
Worrying too much is not good for you or for your baby.
Quit reading about miscarriages and read about baby names, what to expect in the first, second and third trimester. Take care of yourself, eat a healthy diet, get plenty of rest.
Look forward to your happy and healthy baby!

Best wishes.

Hey T.,

I have three kids and am 13 weeks pregnant with number four. I've never had a miscarriage *knock on wood*

They are common, my doctor said that while 60% of fertilized eggs don't end up being pregnancies only about 25% of those are known pregnancies lost. So, it can happen - and women that it happens to should know its normal.. but its not so common that you shouldn't feel hopeful and enjoy being pregnant.

Also keep in mind once out of your first trimester the chance for miscarriage decreases drastically. That's always been when I breath easier.

Good luck and congrats!

Sure all the time, my niece had a baby in November 1st child never had a miscarriage. Fine healthy pregnancies happen all the time promise. Congratulations by the way and enjoy ever moment you can during this time and when the baby gets here.

Terry, you are not doing yourself any favors waisting this wonderful time in your life worrying about things you cannot control. With my first pregnancy all was well. Then two miscarriage, then another healthy pregnancy. Yes its common, but you move on. Worry about things you can control. With two miscarriage its true, I didn't let myself enjoy the excitement of the 4th pregnancy until I cleared the first trimester. It was awesome just being able to get caught up in the wonder and amazement of knowing a child was on its way the first time though. You obviously don't deal well with disappointment so you are are preparing for the worst. Do what you have to do, but I suggest you just enjoy this and don't play the what if game.

First of all congratulations! I felt the same way you did when I got pregnant last year. I had been on birth control for 2 years. 6 months after being off of birth control I was not pregnant and my cycle was all over the place. My Ob referred me to the infertility department. She told me I probably would need drugs to get pregnant. I was so sad. About a month later I found out I was pregnant! No drugs, all natural. I remember reading about miscarriages and I really scared myself during that first trimester. But I'm happy to say, I have a beautiful 6 month old baby girl. All natural, no miscarriage, and my first pregnancy. If I could go back to my pregnancy, I would have relaxed more, instead of worrying. It's better for you and the baby. So, think beautiful thoughts, relax, and enjoy the next 9 months. Pregnancy with all its ups and downs is an amazing experience. =)

I have had 2 pregnancies, no miscarriages, but I just wanted to also tell you that you should NOT worry about having a miscarriage. Granted, they're not uncommon, but they happen for a reason. They happen because something out of the many many things that have to take place in order to develop a baby didn't work right. It's nature's way of taking care of things. I knew when I was pregnant that my mom had 2 miscarriages, but honestly, I didn't worry about it because I had enough people in my life that had miscarriages that I knew it was just all part of nature, and if I had one, who's to say I couldn't try again? I trusted my body and knew that what was best for me and the baby was what would happen. So, don't let your mind go there, and just enjoy the different stages of pregnancy
