Pregnant 13 weeks. When does the miscarriage risk drop?

According to the Mayo Clinic, "About 10 to 20 percent of known pregnancies end in miscarriage. But the actual number is probably much higher because many miscarriages occur so early in pregnancy that a woman doesn't even know she's pregnant." That's actually a pretty high number and makes miscarriage more common than we think it is. I was surprised when I learned this years ago because when I experienced my first loss it was almost taboo to even talk about your loss at least with people in general. So many women seemed to come out of the wood work to share they, too, had experienced a miscarriage.

Most feel getting through the first trimester makes the pregnancy more viable so to speak, though miscarriage can occur any time.

The Mayo Clinic also has a list of what increases the risk of miscarriage: http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/seo…
