I was utterly terrified of having a miscarriage during my first pregnancy. I was also pretty uninformed. The only statistic I could focus on was that 10-20% of pregnancies end in a miscarriage. I cut out all caffeine, even abstaining from chocolate and green tea. I stopped exercising, except for a few short walks once in a while. I literally worried myself sick over it (although that could have been morning sickness, too).All’s well that ends well, though, and everything was fine. But it still seems like every other woman I meet has a story about how she miscarried or how someone she knows had a miscarriage. (By the way, if you’re talking to a pregnant woman, don’t bring up miscarriages unless she does. It really puts a damper on the conversation.)
This time around, I wanted to get my facts straight before I panicked for no reason. So, here are the answers to all your questions about miscarriages.
