Answer

Signs of threatened miscarriage include the following:

  • Vital signs should be within reference ranges unless infection is present or hemorrhage has caused hypovolemia.

  • The abdomen usually is soft and nontender.

  • Pelvic examination reveals a closed internal cervical os. The bimanual examination is unremarkable.
