Talk with your OB: The risk for trisomy increases for women over age 35. A number of different chromosomal abnormalities - including different trisomies - can happen at any age.

Is there a way to hide the pregnancy for the first 5 months? 2 miscarriages before last one at 21 weeks so we'd like to keep it to ourselves.

Depends: Whether you can keep your wonderful news secret will depend on how you carry the baby.

I've just found out I'm pregnant and I'm scared as my last pregnancy ended in miscarriage at 8 weeks. Will this happen again? I'm so scared it will.
