Miscarriage, unfortunately, is VERY common. Especially in women over 25. Chat Icon

Even my sister, who's "super fertile" miscarried her 3rd pregnancy...she was 31. And when discussing it with my family, it seems that most of my aunts/cousins had also lost babies when preggo after 25. Chat Icon

M/c's are very common, i was told 1 in 4-5 pregnancy's in m/c and AGE does not matter. Anyone can have a m/c whether you are 21 years old or 40, our bodies just "know" when something isn't right.

Having had a m/c myself, it's hard, i cannot even fathom going through one at 4 months. My heart breaks, and goes to your friend and their family for their devasting loss.

This is so sad. I'm so sorry for them. I just wanted to add that, while first-trimester miscarriage is fairly common, second-trimester miscarriage is much more rare.

Yes, I have heard that once you get past your first trimester, the risk of miscarriage decreases significantly

One more week of my first trimester

Wow, I was told that the chance increases after 25, I guess that's wrong.

Maybe the chance of a later term mc increases since you can have a chemical PG and not know it.

Anyway, it's sucks either way.

So sorry for your friend and for those that suffer through a MC! Chat Icon

Unfortunately miscarriage is very common. It is heartbreaking to watch someone go through it (thank God I never had one).

My mom miscarried when she was almost 6 months preggo. She went to the bathroom and the baby was there. My dad had to take it from her and wrap it up and they went to the hospital. I remember that day and it was so sad to see my mom and dad crying like they were.

I think that is the scariest part of a pregnancy...a part of me that is nervous about it already.

Re: A friend of ours just lost their baby...

Unfortunately miscarriage is more common than any of us realize. Even at a later stage (past the 'safe' 12 week point) it does happen -- though more uncommon -- and that makes it all the more scary to think about when you do become pregnant. I think sometimes we don't think about this topic until we also are TTC, or it hits home when you hear a personal story about someone's loss. I know I was never aware of how many ladies go through it until I started TTC -- and then when I also lost a pregnancy at 13 weeks, I realized how much I had in 'common' with so many other ladies.. something I wish I never had to share with ANYONE else Chat Icon

I am very sorry for your friends' loss Chat Icon It's so so hard to deal with Chat Icon

sorry to hear about your friends mc. Chat Icon

i had a mc at 7 weeks. it felt like a bad period with VERY painful cramps...the days leading to it i had some lower back pain so i knew something was wrong, but nothing too extreme. i passed it naturally so i didnt require a d&c - i heard that is very painful and uncomfortable!

in the first trimester its called a mc...after that i think its called a stillbirth - im sure that must be so much more tramatic and i would assume more painful (physically)...


regarding the age thing - i was only 25 at the time so i dont know how much of a difference that really makes. once you go through it, you realize how common it is...at any age!!
