    1 Miscarriage
    2 Birth defects
    3 Traumatic delivery
    4 emergency caesarian
    5 very premature birth

    It's weird trying to put them in order...I don't think the order is right but I don't want to spend too much time deciding!

    I think mine are along the same lines
    1. Miscarriage
    2. still birth of one or both babies
    3. major birth defects
    4. very early birth
    5. an episiotomy ( I saw a terrible video clip once)

    I'm carrying two and either the fears are bigger or I'm anxious anyway I know the risks are higher so maybe that accounts for it.
