Signs of Pregnancy, misscarriage
hi there

My wife and i have been trying to have a baby for 2 years now. We are both still in our 20's, hve been married for 3 years.
She has mis-carried 3 times during this period.
We just found out 1 week ago (via a home test) that she is pregant again. But she's nt feeling anything only sore breasts and tiredness.
She had had a few drops of blood early this morning - DOES THIS MEAN ANOTHER MISSCARRIAGE? What can we do?
And what are the signs of prgnancy that we shoudl look out for bec we are not sure how accurate the home test is.

I would really appreciate any advise...

Under the cicumstances I would suggest that she sees her doctor immediately. Any bleeding in pregnancy could indicate a miscarriage. Home tests are pretty accurate, particularly if she has missed a period.
