Welcome to ehealthforum.
If the miscarriages were early miscarriages and spontaneous miscarriages, then you need to be careful with this pregnancy. Consider discussing with your gynecologist/obstetrician to check for serial HCG levels (pregnancy hormone), to look for low levels or diminishing levels. If the levels are low, miscarriage could result again. External supplementation of HCG in form of injection or oral progesterone supplements should be considered to prevent miscarriage. Also a karyotyping study of you and your partner would tell if any chromosomal anomalies are responsible for your repeated miscarriages.
Take care.
