Miscarriage in the 3rd trimester is actually a still birth

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but 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. All pregnancies should be monitored by qualified professionals to reduce risks as much as possible
