What is the chance for miscarrige after you have heard the babys heartbeat? The heartbeat was165

How far along are you? I've always heard that the risk for m/c decreases quite a bit after hearing the heartbeat. My baby's heartbeat was 153 at 7w (If I'm remembering correctly!) and 169 at 10w. The doc seemed to think that was a good, healthy rate!

Well, if mine were normal, then you should be right on track too... I know things can still easily go wrong, but I'm thinking positive.... I think this one will go to term!

From what I've heard, the risk of miscarriage goes down after the 12th week. I don't know if hearing the heartbeat can guarantee anything or not. I have a friend that couldn't hear the heartbeat until 16 weeks and she had a healthy baby. I also think it's a good idea to think positively, and I know it eased a lot of my worries the first time I heard the heartbeat too!

I have read that it decreases to about a 5% chance but I am not certain. My first u/s is today and my Doctor indicated earlier that the risk does go down once you see/hear the heartbeat. I will ask him.

I heard my babies heart beat today at 8 weeks, 3 days. My Doctor lowered my risk to about 5%.
