In brief: 1st trimester
Although an unfortunate but real part of pregnancy, miscarriage most likely occurs in the first trimester. Many pregnancy losses occur in the immediate 2 to 4 weeks after the first positive pregnancy test.
Some studies suggest that the miscarriage occurs due to genetic abnormalities in the developing pregnancy that would never result in a healthy baby.
