Blood tests to show your risk of miscarriage have become more common. The tests show if you have thrombophilia, which may increase the risk of a miscarriage or other problems during pregnancy. Doctors often order the tests for pregnant women who have had problems—such as miscarriage, pre-eclampsia, or a baby that did not develop normally. But often, tests are not needed, even if you have had a pregnancy problem.
