The original תקנה of שובבים ת"ת,( fasting & Tikunim  the 8 weeks starting from Parshas שמות) was intended only for leap years.

The Levush O. Ch. 685 writes,

" one of the reasons we fast  on
שובבים ת" ת, so that pregnant women shouldn’t miscarry."

During leap years, it is more common for women to miscarry.

We fast 8 times for the last 8 months of pregnancy.
(first month [40 days] is not a miscarriage) . It is appropriate to

start on Parshas Shemos, where it says ובני ישראל פרו וישרצו
