Same pattern but different answers?

1

How can I thank you all enough, and here are some strange sentences to me. Could you take a look at them?

 

1) If I don't sleep now, I could miscarry.

 

2) If you don't love me, I could kill myself.

 

Most native English speakers say #1 is grammartically correct and it sounds okay but #2 is wrong, But to me, the pattern of the both are the same and they sound okay. Is there a reason you feel some wrongness in grammar in #2?

 

Thank you so much as always in advance.
