  • Yaaayyy some replies....pleased to 'meet' u all *waves* lol :lol:

  • Just realising here that they say that the highest chance of miscarriage is in your 30's but most of us here are in our twenties. Statistics are full off shizer.
  • I dont really believe the statistics! Its the fact that MMC is only meant to affect 1% of pregnancies apparantly that really gets me...given how many of us have gone through it so clearly it must be more than that and i also think the 1 in 4 for MC may be a slight underestmation 2 else we all wouldnt be here would be....



    [Modified by: Lauz41 on April 01, 2009 06:18 PM]

  • The Drs always say that the statistics aren't very accurate because a lot of the time people have very early mc's and didn't even know they were pregnant - they just think it's a late, heavy period! Also, some people don't go to their doctor or EPU.

    At the Recurrent MC Clinic on Friday the Consultant said that the official statistics say that 1% of couples have recurrent mc's but that the % of people they see there for this problem is a lot higher.

    Love NN xxx
  • You know it has amazed me how many people go through this. The hospital I was in said they have about 3 a day in there of people having eptopic, MMC etc. Also I found out that a girl at work had a MC the week before me and we were going to be a due date apart, how freaky is that, what are the chances? Then my other friend found out she was pg the week before my scan and she was 6 weeks had a MC last weekend, I feel like I'm surrounded by it which is just unbelieveable, I mean whats in the water at the moment??? It makes me sad that so many of us have to suffer through this. Boo hoo.

    Anyway just thought I'd add. xxx
  • Just thought i would bump this up...dont have to add if you dont want to...
