Miscarriage rate after 7 weeks

I have heard that once you see the heartbeat your risks of miscarriage are decreaed dramatically but I am pretty sure 12 weeks is when the risks are decreased even further.

I don't know the rates, but my doctor told me that the vast majority of miscarriages occur before seeing a heartbeat. He said if you see a strong heartbeat, then miscarriage risk is very low....and by 12 weeks (when all the major systems have formed) it's highly unlikely.

At my first heartbeats (6w3d) I was told 90% chance of everything being OK through to term. I tried to talk my FS up to saying 95% chance, but he held firm.

I don't know the exact figures, but I know seeing the heartbeat at 6 weeks reduces the risk somewhat, but seeing a heartbeat at 8 weeks reduces it alot more, and again at 12. HTH

I've read somewhere that miscarriage rates drop to 10% after seeing a heartbeat.

Not sure at 7 weeks (I've had two miscarriage after 7 weeks but never saw a heartbeat anyway) but I was just told that at 12 weeks miscarriage drops to 2%. It's very rare apparently.

I read somewhere that:
Weeks 3 - 6, the miscarriage rate is 10%
Weeks 6 - 12, the miscarriage rate is 5% or less if you hear a heart beat
After 12 weeks it drops to 3%

I have heard it drops to 10-5% risk after seeing a heartbeat.
Then again I had a scan and saw heartbeat at 6w4d, and had a miscarriage about 4 days later. So who knows?
