I believe most doctors do not refer to a loss as a miscarriage once you are in the 3rd trimester. It is then either referred to as pre-term labor or as a stillbirth. The chances of either of these are pretty low, but can happen especially if you have other risk factors.


Third trimester miscarriages are usually called stillbirths or preterm births. The risk of having a stillborn is less than 1%. The risk of having a preterm birth is greater and there are many factors involved. Talk with your doctor and learn what signs and symptoms that you should be concerned about and when to seek medical attention.
