Pins and needles on the abdomen and/or the knees is not a sign of an impending miscarriage however, it can be a sign of nerve compression in the lower thoracic to lumbar vertebral areas. I doubt that this will cause a miscarriage but at the same time I also encourage that you see your PCP for an evaluation. A physical examination and a possible referral to a Neurologist will be worthwhile here.

Hope this helps.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
