Question: How do you know if a pregnancy is viable?

Your pregnancy is viable if the baby is alive, developing properly, and the pregnancy is able to continue all the way until your baby is ready to be born. A miscarriage is any unintentional loss of your child before he or she is able to survive outside of the womb.

What determines if a pregnancy is viable?

From a clinical perspective, a viable pregnancy is one in which the baby can be born and have a reasonable chance of survival. By contrast, a nonviable pregnancy is one in which the fetus or baby has no chance of being born alive.

How do you know if you have a silent miscarriage?

A missed miscarriage is most often diagnosed by ultrasound before 20 weeks gestation. Usually, the doctor diagnoses it when they cannot detect a heartbeat at a prenatal checkup. Sometimes, its simply too early in the pregnancy to see a heartbeat.
