Frequency and Causes of Miscarriage

Studies indicate that 15 to 20 percent of all diagnosed pregnancies end miscarriage, says the world book encyclopedia. But the risk of miscarriage is highest during the first two weeks following conception (fertilization), a time at which most women do not even know they are pregnant. That's sound familiar, because we knew I was pregnant at 9weeks already and before that.. I played volleyball in one occasion lol, then I used to help hubby mowed the grass and using the push mower which i loved thing to do yikes! he doesn't want me to use the driving mower although i know how to drive it. I'm just glad bebe really hold strong and have good development inside! his ever since a persistence boy!
Anyway, resume... Another reference states that over 80 percent of miscarriages occur in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, of which at latest half are thought to be caused by defects in the chromosomes of the fetus. These defects are not the result of similar defects in the chromosomes of the mother and the father.

Other causes of miscarriage may stem from the mother's health. Medical authorities point to hormonal and immune system disorders, infections and abnormalities in the cervix or the uterus of the mother. Chronic diseases such as diabetes (if poorly controlled) and high blood pressure may also be factors.

According to experts, miscarriage is not necessarily caused by exercising, lifting heavy objects, or having sexual relations. So its understandable that simple hard work doesn't mean you will hurt baby in a womb then. It is unlikely that a fall, a minor blow, or a sudden fright will cause miscarriage. One reference says... The fetus is unlikely to be harmed by an injury unless the injury is serious enough to threaten your own life. How well the design of the womb testifies to a wise and loving creator!

The very best thing to do when you are pregnant is just take it easy in anyway in order to prevent any injurious thing and don't smoke or avoid drinking alcoholic beverages and with caffeine on it! if you want your baby healthy inside the womb then eat nutritious food like vegetables and fruits plus food that contains lots of proteins and fiber. Most important of all be happy!
