I wonder about many things...just today....This serendipitous and simple thought pattern.
I am a housewife, no one, not a threat...I just think too much
Low estrogen levels lead to 25-40% miscarriage in the first trimester (second only to chromosomal abnormalities) according to the march of dimes. Maybe something saves the fetus from miscarry in the womb, but still doesn't find a way to allay harm.(http://www.marchofdimes.com/loss/miscarriage.aspx Hormonal causes, near bottom.)
Thalidomide studies have done some good...the days of neural tube malformations and the dates of mothers ingestion are around the 23 or 24 day, I'd have to look it up. Neurocutaneous disorders have been pegged in that time also, as the skin shows anomolies in formation at about the same time, and they are somehow related, or so I was told.
I don't know that I know what I am talking about. I'm just trying to remember. Chromosomal/hormonal account for 75-90% of miscarriages. Something is going on. Something is going on...it's a miracle any of us turn out viable.
