Risk is decreased: The fact the fetal pole has a heartbeat is very good and encouraging. However, the risk of miscarriage is still present until 12-13 weeks. That is why most celebrities do not release statements about pregnancy, due to the fact that miscarriage can happen. After this time, with a normal fetal heartbeat and placenta, the risk of miscarriage drastically decreases.
