Threatened, yes: Depends on what they are doing--if close to 2x/2d, or if doubling every 3 days, probably ok. If slow upward climb, or plateau, or drifting down, then unfortunately, yes, miscarriage likely. Try not to be too disappointed if happens--when early, usually indicator of misaligned chromosomes / nonviable pregnancy so body stops process early so can try again--no maternal action/inaction to blame.
