I am 9 weeks and 5 days pregnant. I had a light bleed at 6 weeks and 4 days - I had a scan and all was fine. I had another scan at 8 weeks and 6 days and all was looking "perfect" I do not have another scan until 12 weeks and 6 days and I am just very nervous about it. What are my chances of miscarriage between now and then?

Brief Answer: not to worry Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Chances of miscarriage is more than less in the first trimester. As the pregnancy advances, chances of loss of pregnancy decrease. If your scan at 8 weeks was good, and everything was fine, then there is a good chance that your pregnancy is advancing well. Dont be nervous because it have a negative effect on your body. There is nothing to suggest that your pregnancy is unstable.
