Can doctors predict if you will miscarry ?

Visiting a doctor with bleeding or pain in early pregnancy is a highly anxious time. Whilst most of us know there is little that can be done to treat the situation, what most women hope is to be reassured that there pregnancy is still healthy and perhaps have some idea of what will happen next. In this study by Cecilia Bottomley and colleagues it seems there are important indicators that can inform women of the likely outcome. Whilst this information cannot change the outcome of the pregnancy it can least give couples an indication of the prognosis so they know how to approach the next scan and prepare themselves for what might happen next.
