A 27-year-old female asked:

I saw my babies heartbeat on a ultrasound at 7weeks, does that mean my chances of miscarriage are really low now?

Good sign: Seeing a heartbeat on ultrasound is certainly encouraging. Miscarriage rates are thought to be in the 5% range once a heartbeat is detected.
Dr. Devin Namaky

Yes: It is unlikely that you will miscarry. Nothing is for sure however.
