Percentage Likelihood of Miscarriage

So I am a little paranoid about miscarriage so I am always checking to see if there is blood when I use the restroom.  I know there is nothing I or anyone can do to prevent a miscarriage but here are some stats:

Week of Gestation

Percentage Likelihood of Miscarriage

1-2 (Before your period is due) 75% (this includes eggs that never grow past fertilization, and it would have been impossible to know you were pregnant; after implantation, which occurs 7-10 days after ovulation, the odds go down to 31%)2Before taking an early detection home pregnancy test that gives results before you expect your period
3-6 10% (at 14 days post ovulation when hCG levels reach 50-80)2
6-12 5% (or less if heartbeat heard)
2nd trimester 3% (considered stillbirth after 20 weeks)
3rd trimester No longer considered miscarriage once fetus is beyond one pound (500 grams) around 24 weeks gestation. Stillbirth rate is 1%.

    Wow, those are really good stats! I had heard that first trimester is like 30% risk, but these are so much better. And you’re in the 95% or higher success category now, right?
