Hi-I'm currently 8 1/2 weeks pregnant after only one other pregnancy which was a successful live birth 3 years ago. I have PCOS so am currently taking Glucophage to sustain pregnancy. I had an ultrasound at 6 1/2 weeks and the heartrate was already there (129). Unlike my first, I am so worried about the chance of miscarriage with this pregnancy. Does anyone know the statistics for my situation?

Hello Sth1716 and welcome!

You're asking a good question, but the person you need to ask is your doctor. He or she is familiar with your health history, and is the expert in obstetrics.

Hope all goes smoothly,
