Period Early and Heavy

I am 24 years old.

My period came a week early this month - it is usually to the day every 29 days. It was very heavy the first 2 days - like a pad every hour or so. I lost so much blood that I felt faint. I had a lot of cramping (more than usual) and a severe migraine. Now after 4 days it has taperd off to almost nothing.

Could this just be a "normal" period or was it maybe a miscariage? Can you miscarry that early? I am not under any stress and I cannot think of anything in my life that has changed.

The same thing happened me to last month. I spoke with a nurse and she said it is possible to have a miscarriage before the time you should start your cycle. Mine was spotting one day light blood the next day, and clots the third day then it was gone.
