For the sake of sanity we pretty much just agree on 13 weeks.

When you are 13 weeks 1 day (counting from your last period) you are considered to be 1 day into your 14th week. Have you had an ultrasound yet or heard the baby's heartbeat with a fetal doppler yet? The chances of miscarriage drop to about 5% after hearing/seeing a heartbeat between 7-9 weeks. After a hb is seen/heard after nine weeks the chance of miscarriage drops down to around 2%, so you've actually been 'out of the woods' so to speak for a few weeks now :)

yeah i have my own Fetal Doppler, its from bellybeats.com ones the doctors use, and i hear the heart beat all the time 170bpm , i am still scared because i have had a miscarriage before.
