Prenatal Care is very accurate and doctors and various tests as well as fetal heart pulse are consistently is very unlikely that if indeed there was a miscarriage at twelve weeks that it would not be dectected on visits. Dr.'s are pretty accurate,but the first time I was pg,the dr. could not get a heartbeat. They told me you usually can not hear the heartbeat till twelve weeks. So they told me I may have miscalculated how far along I was. I knew I was right and started spotting and decided to see another dr. . Finally after seeing this dr., I found out that the baby's heart had stopped beeting at 11wks.and I was almost 17wks along. The dr. did a d&c. My case may have been very rare, not to say that it happens to everyone, but there is a small chance that it could happen. Best of luck to you!!!

Most statistics say that up to 12 weeks, the chance of having a miscarriage is up to 20%, or higher in people who have had miscarriages in the past or are at a high risk of having a miscarriage. Lifestyle factors such as smoking, drinking, or using recreational drugs can also increase the chance of having a miscarriage. However, after 12 weeks, the chances drop to less than 5%, if your doctor has found a healthy heartbeat.

What are the chances of miscarriage after a radiation miscarriage?

That"s a new one on me- Atoms can split- with usuallly humungous destructive effect- but I have never heard of a radiation miscarriage, though I am sure it can happen. It has been found crewmen who serve too long in the reactor compartments on Atomic subs- and these operate ( buttoned-up) for 90 day patrols) have shown symptoms of sterility. Naturally there are limits on how much sub duty the crewman can serve- and to some extent the problem can be ameliorated by remote controls- generally placing the reactor room (Off limits) in normal duty hours. This is another argument against Waves on submarines!
