I am currently 6 weeks and 5 days. Last night I woke up and went to the bathroom. I passed a clot the size of half of my fist. I went to the ER and they did an ultrasound and found that the baby was still in there and there was a heartbeat. They are unsure of why I was bleeding, but my HCG level had went from 59000 to 98000 in two days. They said my cervix was still closed when they did the pelvic exam. I did not experience any bleeding after passing the large clot, however, when doing the pelvic exam, the doctor took out 7-8 large q-tips worth of blood. It is currently 14 hours after i passed the clot and I have not had anymore bleeding. Why would this have happened? Does this mean that I could miscarry slowly?
