Hi! I am 10 weeks pg., & I've had 2 u/s. One was at 6w 1d, heartbeat was 117. Next u/s was 2 weeks later at 8w 2d, heartbeat was 172. I have another u/s next Friday, but I'm beginning to get quite anxious! Anyone have any idea as far as miscarrying after seeing the hb 2 times? Thanks!

Your chances are pretty low... but I know that once you hear the heartbeat, your chances drop to 1%. I hope this helps! You seem to be coming along very well though! I had a threatened abortion at 5 weeks and I've had a couple ultrasounds as well...one at 5 weeks with only the gestational sac, and one at 6 weeks and 5 days...baby with a hb of 140. I'm 9 weeks and 4 days, and this Friday I get to hear the heartbeat, so I can't wait to pa__s that milestone. I'm sure you're just as nervous as I am....but you're probably jsut fine, hun!

There is a miscarriage statistic site but I'm sure that will just freak you out more. The risk now that you've seen a heartbeat is down to like 10%-15% chance I think. I looked it up like a week or two ago. Heartbeat or not the first 12 weeks are still critical and scary! I can't wait for this pregnancy to be over! I will be terrified the ENTIRE time!

Oh, maybe I am wrong sorry! This is what I just found on the miscarriage a__sociation website. "If the scan picks up a heartbeat and the baby appears to be the right size according to your dates, this can be very rea__suring. Research has shown that if you see a heartbeat at 6 weeks of pregnancy, the chances of the pregnancy continuing are 78%. A heartbeat at 8 weeks increases the chance of a continuing pregnancy to 98% and at 10 weeks to 99.4%. So things could still go wrong, but as long as there is a heartbeat, the risk of miscarriage decreases as the weeks go by."

Here is something else I found. "The statistics regarding miscarriage vary widely depending on the source. Here are some of the basic numbers. Almost 20% of pregnancies end in miscarriage, with the majority occurring during the first 12 weeks. There is a 75% chance of miscarriage in weeks 1-2 of pregnancy, when you do not know you are pregnant. There is a 10% chance of miscarriage in weeks 3-6 and this number drops to 5% during weeks 6-12. During the second trimester the chance of miscarriage drops again to 3%. After you’ve reached 20 weeks gestation, it is no longer considered a miscarriage. For repeat miscarriage the statistic are as follows: If you have had a miscarriage during your first pregnancy, your chances of another miscarriage are 10-13%. If you have had one or more live births and one miscarriage your chance of another miscarriage is around 10%. There is a 40% chance of a repeat miscarriage if you have had two pregnancies and two miscarriages. The chance of multiple miscarriages is lower, at around 13%, if you have had one or more live births. If you have had three pregnancies and three miscarriages there is a 60% chance you will miscarry again. If you have had four miscarriages with no live births your chances of a healthy pregnancy drop to 0-5%."
