Hello! We met with our Obstetrician today for the first time. I am 8 weeks along now. I had an ultrsound last week to date the pregnancy and at that time we saw a really strong heartbeat (161 I think). In any case, I wasn't aware of this and was still worrying about miscarriage...did you know that once a strong heartbeat is observed the risk of miscarriage goes down to 5%..even for a 40 year older like me (and then down to 1% at 12 weeks). I thought this news might be encouraging to those of you in the early weeks.
