In brief: Somewhat common

Unfortunately abnormal pregnancies that do not spontaneously miscarry before being recognized and diagnosed are fairly common.
The actual reported incidence varies from study to study being reported at as lo as 2-3% and as high as 10-14%. The literature suggests that about 75% of all conceptions do not result in a viable/normal pregnancy. Most of them do miscarry, usually before being diagnosed.
