Signs and what to look for if having a miscarriage

Hi, i just want to know what I would be looking for if I have has a miscarriage. I am supposed to be 12 weeks pregnant on today.  I say suppose to b/c i'm not sure if i have had a miscarriage.  I have had some bleeding, but no pain or cramping.  At first the bleeding was light then kind of dark then back light.  I had some clots but i don't know what to look for as a sign of a micarriage.  I've heard that they are mostly painful and there is one big clot/block of blood, but I just don't know. This is my first pregnancy and i am just worrying b/c I want erverything to be alright.  Please, Please help me!

I had some bleeding and cramping when I was pregnant.  I too was in a panic that I was having a miscarriage.  The doctor reassured me that sometimes this happens.  He said the baby was "nesting"...whatever that is supposed to mean.  So, I would think that sometimes bleeding can be normal...however...I would contact your doctor ASAP and tell him/her whats going on, or if you feel more comfortable doing something now, make that trip to the ER and have them check you out.

The only thing is i haven't had any cramping with the bleeding.  
I only cramped at the beginning when i found out i was pregnant. I just know most people say that when they had a miscarriage there was a block of blood.  i haven't had that but I've had some painless clotting. When I go to the bathroom i don't know what to look for as signs of miscarriage.  it;s just so confusing.  Did u carry ur baby full term?  I'm trying to hold out until my next scheduled appt. with my doctor.  Thanks for responding.

i dont think any clotting is good during pregnancy you should go to your doctor asap for a check up.generally the bleeding comes befor the cramping in a mc as yours has been going for a while  the baby maybe totally fine some women bled through there pregnancys and they are very successful i think its around 50% success although i dont no about the clotting im no professional just get you and your baby checked out for peice of mind even.sometimes its best not to ask look and read comments in these types of websites because you end up talking yourself into thinking negative things because of other peoples symptoms you no want i mean best of luck with your baby keep us posted.

I'm not really sure what you're holding out for and why you don't go to the doctor. Spotting and bleeding can be normal but I don't think that clotting is not normal. I think you need to go to a doctor asap. There's usually not much they can do if you've already begun to m/c but hopefully you haven't and they can provide you with all the info you need. There's nothing more important than the precious angel growing inside you and this shouldn't be taken lightly.

Yes, I did carry my baby full-term...he's 9 now.  Don't hold out until your next appointment.  Have it checked out NOW!

Yes any type of bleeding while pregnant should be checked!
With my m/c I had severe lower back ache to start then bleeding started followed by cramping and passing of clots
but not all are the same.
Sometimes bed rest for women is required. Bleeding doesnt always warrant a miscarriage but should be looked into!!
best wishes!

If you are clotting, you need to call your doctor right away...Ive never had a miscarriage, but from what Ive heard, it feels like labor, and believe me, ive done that twice, its horrible...I hope your babys ok, but you really need to go into the doctor, some bleeding is normal, but clots are not. And I was told when I was pregnant that if I clotted I was supposed to put them in a bag, and take them with me to the doctor, I know really gross, but that is so they can examine them and know exactly what they are.

But dont go taking your clots in to the doctor on my advice, call your doctor and ask...that might just be my doctors prefrence....and you should really go into the doctor or er now, your baby depends on you, and if something is wrong, im sorry but its not very responsible to "hold out" until your next doctors appt...it may be to harsh, but if you were dying, would you want someone to say, oh we are gonna hold out to take you to the ER for a few more weeks...lets hope you make it that long...for the rest of your childs life, you are responsible for getting the things that it needs done.

Well it had already been confirmed that i was pregnant, but i just hadn't had my ultrasound yet.  I thank all of u for the comments and i will just go to the doctor to confirm if I have had a miscarriage or if everything is ok.  I will definitely keep yall posted and just wish me luck.  it was just so awkward because i didn't have any cramping whatsoever.  Just reading everything I thought that it would atleast hurt a little.  But i don't know.  Thanks for everything.

Hi everyone i am 6 weeks pregnant and i have experienced bleeding on and off for the past two weeks. it started off as a brown/pinkish discharge, stopped for 3 days. 5 days ago it stated again however much heavier in fact much like a period i have also been experiencing mild cramping. i had a scan on the same day this bleeding started and was told that the baby is still there and the cervix was closed. I am due to go for another scan this week. just like to know if anyone has experienced a similar symptoms and any comments on the duration of miscarriages, i read that it can go on for weeks.

Hi I was reading some of the signs of miscarriage, and im not to sure if I am in the early stages of one. I found out I am pregnant the first of this month and ever since their has been some bleeding off and on. At first pink and most of the time brownish. Sometimes red. Its always on the tissue. But there has been some clots at the bottom of the toilet little tiny ones. I just dont know if Im in the process of having one or not. I have had some cramping but nothing painful. I just dont know that to think.

Pink and brown blood is generally considered okay so long as you are only spotting.  However, you said you have had red blood as well as some clots along with some cramping.  This warrants a call and trip to the doctor.  They need to check you out to make sure everything is okay.  Please call first thing in the morning and get in right away.  

Best wishes,

Amanda

I'm having a miscarriage as we speak so I will tell you my whole story.  It's long.  I started bleeding last Monday and it was like I was having my period.  I had no bachache or abdominal pain. I went to the doctor on Tuesday and she checked me out.  My cervix was closed but she said my uterus was smaller than what it should have been.  She booked me for an ultrasound for the following Tuesday.  I bled everyday leading up to the ultrasound. The Tuesday morning of the ultrasound I passed three clots that looked like liver.  That was the first time that happened.  When I went for the ultrasound later that day, I was expecting the worst so I wasn't surprised when they told us the bad news.  The embryo hadn't developed properly. My doctor wanted my body to deal with the miscarriage on its own since there wasn't much left in there. On Wednesday night, I went to bed at 10pm and woke up at 12am with excrutiating pain in my lower abdomin (abdomen) and lower back.  I felt like I was in labour!  I sat on the toilet for a really long time and finally, four hours later, the pain subsided.  During that time, I passed alot of clots and blood.  The same thing happened last night but it was worse and I passed a really big clot the size of a loonie (I'm Canadian). That was last night.  I really hope it doesn't happen again tonight.  Anyways, when I started bleeding, I knew deep in my heart that I wasn't pregnant anymore.  I'm very in tune to my body and I just didn't feel pregnant anymore.  My breasts weren't swollen and tender anymore and all of my sickness went away.  I just knew.  If you have any kind of bleeding, especially if it's more than just spotting, go to your doctor for peice of mind.  Just remember, everything happens for a reason. I know it's hard to stay positive but just think of this, you got pregnant this time, it WILL happen again.  Just stay positive and look forward to the future because it WILL be bright.   Good luck!!!!!

I found out I was pregnant on Wednesday - Home Preg Test - and worked out to be 5 weeks. That night I started getting very bad stomach pains and cramping in lower abdoman. My partner took me to the ER on Thursday morning....was checked out by doc. At this stage, still only bad cramping...no bleeding at all. After an internal the doc confirmed that I was probably miscarrying. The cramps have subsided, and aside from a tiny bit of blood on my toilet paper last night, I have not started bleeding yet. I have been told to expect a very heavy period. It is now Saturday afternoon. How long does a miscarriage normally take? When should I expect to start feeling better? Should I be going back to a doctor for a check up?

i know it sais that you must be over 18, but i need help. I'm 15 and i wasn't sure if i was pregnant, i was just going to wait it out y'know. Well i am on birth control so i kept taking it, I didn't know that it could kill it.My stomach was so sore and i didn't know why, my breasts were so tender, but it had only been almost 3 weeks. Yesterday morning I went to the bathroom and there was brown blood, a little later on in the day i went to the bathroom and all there was was blood, no clots though, but i thought that i was having my period before and it was on of the most painful ones i've had. I don't know, i'm going to go get tested on monday. i'm pretty sure that i'm not pregnant anymore, but i wish that i was,the would be dad wants to try again, i told him that he should wait for me if he wants a baby by me, i'm graduating.

My advice to you since you're only 15 is to not get
pregnant.  You're way too young.  Any guy that pressures you
to have a baby at 15 doesn't love you.  Do you know that
you are endangering yourself as well as the baby?  Please let
your mother know what is going on.  You should be having a care-
free teenage life not worrying about diapers.  You have plenty
time to think about babies after you're married.

I think I'm having a miscarriage I just want to see what anyone who has went through it thinks.  At first I thought I had an ectopic preg because I spotted  for like 5 days and the hpt was faint and I had a previous ectopic.  Then 2 days ago I started bleeding (I'm 5 1/2 weeks) I've passed small clots.  I dont have health insurance so I couldnt go to the emergency room, I went to the free clinic today and they said they didnt see anything in the tubes but did see a sac in the womb.  They didnt do blood tests there so I have to go somewhere else.  My question is "Is This An Early Miscarriage?"  The bleeding has been going on for 3 days, Its heavy enough to wear a pad but not enough to change it often, I've seen very small clots, the blood is bright red.  I dont understand this I do also have 3 children.

It sounds like the beginning of a miscarriage, any clot is a bad clot.
I miscarried during my first pregnancy. In sept, and still trying for another...
You will probably have some bad cramps!! If that starts, I would go the the ER.
Please let me know how things come out, I pray to god that I'm wrong... take care of yourself:)

A pap smear can not tell you that you will not have a M/C.  Only time can tell you that.  Or possibly an abnormal U/S.  The cramps could be from growing.  Watch for any bleeding and call to let your doctor know you are having the cramps.  Some doctors will want to examine a patient if they are having a lot of cramping and some won't if there's not any bleeding.  But a pap smear can't guarantee a healthy pregnancy.

I know that you are worried about seeing a doctor, but it really sounds like you need to.  I am more worried about your health than your fear, right now.  Another concern for me is the fact that you are having sex and have not been to a gyn.  That is scary, you need to have yourself checked at least every six months once you become sexually active.  Your mom is probably not concerned because she probably assumes that you are not having sex.  You have to see a doctor and soon.  Please see a doctor soon.

I started spotting on Monday & had an ultrasound that showed that the pregnancy wasn't viable. I was supposed to be about 8 weeks, but the scan showed 6 weeks 1 day, no fetal pole or heartbeat. Anyway, all I've had so far is continued spotting, although on Wednesday something came out which I was wondering if it was the pregnancy sac. It was kind of smooth oval time shape, about 5cm long and 2cm wide. It just wasn't like a normal clot. Does anyone else think that this was the pregnancy sac and am I going to have some proper bleeding? I thought that when people miscarry it's supposed to be like a normal period with cramping? I haven't had any cramping at all. Also I'm wondering if I should just start TTC straight away or if I should wait. I'm 28 but my hubby's 44. We already have a little girl who's about 22 months.

So as I said in my previous post, does anyone think that was the pregnancy sac that I passed? And should I be getting more bleeding? Not just spotting? And cramps?? I haven't had any cramps. Please reply someone....

I was supposed to start my period on July 24th 2007 and I thougt I started on July 28th. I bled lightly for about one day then pretty much stopped for about two days. I know that abnormal and light periods can be a sign of pregnancy. It is now August 21st and if pregnant I would be 8 weeks. Ever since I was supposed to start my period I have been bleeding/spotting. Not really to heavy. For the past week however I have started to have to wear a pad. The blood varies from pink and brown to red with some dark purplish thick spots. Even some stringy redish purple spots on the toilet paper. I was having some pregnancy symptoms like nausea, and bloating, frequent urination. Although when I have the frequent urination it's more like a UTI. When I go to pee hardly anything comes out. But those are my only symptoms. No weight gain either. I also thought the nausea could have been due to nerves. I haven't had any appetite changes, sore and bigger breasts, darkening of the nipples or any of those usual symptoms.  So I really don't know if I am pregnant at all. We used a condom and it was the first time I'd had sex in months. I have had very irregular periods for the past 3 years. Sometimes missing them all together for two months in a row. In the past week my bleeding has become worse and the other night my cramps were so bad that I had to use a heating pad which I never have to do. They were in my lower back and lower abdomen. I never noticed several clots but I did notice one small clot during that time and several little tiny pieces of clots. After that my cramping and bleeding is much less. I haven't even had to wear a pad today. I've pretty much been bleeding for a month, is that normal during pregnancy? Also, I notice I haven't been nauseated today and less bloated. I just don't feel the way I did before the few days of bad pain and bleeding. I'm going to take a PGtest and then go to the Dr. regardless if it's positive or not but I just wanted to know if in your opinion this sounds like a miscarriage. Thanks a lot.

I have a question. I had a IUD removed on 1/11. After I got it in my period was all crazy. Seemed like I always had it. Then when I had it removed it stopped . I had sex 1/11, 1/13, 1/14, 1/16, 1/18, 1/19, 1/23 and 1/24. I started bleeding light on 1/21, and it has been getting heavy but its not like I have to change it every 3-4 hours like normally. I took a test on 1/23 and it was negative. I wanted to know if this bleeding is normal. I was plannin on testing again on 1/28 or 2/1. We are ttc, but it seems like something is wrong. I have been craving food, tired, and peeing way tooo much. My boobs were sore in the beginning, but nothing since then. I don't know. any help please.

I've found out i'm 4 1/2 weeks pregnant. Three days ago i was getting cramp like pains in my lower abdomen and and some really light pinkish bleeding. The following day i noticed a small amount of brownish blood as well as cramping.I was admitted to hospital for observation, ended up in there for a day and a half. They did blood tests and my hCG have been increasing and i had ultrasounds but they came back inconclusive. They think it could be a miscarriage, Ectopic pregnancy or Implantation Bleeding, but it's too early to tell. Then this morning i noticed a thick white discharge. Is this normal? Has anyone had similar problems to this and what did it turn out to be? How long does a miscarriage go for in duration? Has anyone had an ectopic pregnancy? I'm really worried!!

When I miscarried, I went to the ER not knowing I was pregnant (but suspecting I was even though tests were negative) but concerned because I had severe cramping and heavy bleeding.  They did a pelvic and vaginal u/s and saw nothing.  They did a blood test and it was positive with HcG of 364.  They weren't sure if this was the beginning or end of a pregnancy, since my levels were so low.  So I got another blood test done 2 days later and it had dropped down to 150, plus the night before I passed the fetal tissue.  Before I left the hospital, they said it didn't look eptopic because they didn't see anything in the tubes, but they didn't want to rule it out and I had to follow up with my gyno for everything else.  As far as duration, my bleeding began December 25 and ended January 1 (nice holiday huh!).  My next period took 8 weeks to come.  Hope this helps.

I need help. I am in my late teens and have been on the pill since April. My boyfriend and I have been having sex since February, but we did it once (with a condom) mid-april before I started taking it. Ever since then I had felt pregnant. The pill I'm taking, seasonique, is supposedly more likely to have spotting. Well, I didn't spot AT ALL in May, on the first month of the pill. This terrified me, but I convinced myself that I was not, in fact, pregnant. However about 1.5 weeks ago, I began to feel a little nauseous, and I had about 1 week of brown blood. Then it got extremely heavy and red, and I had never felt so sick for so long in my life. I eventually passed a greyish-pinkish piece of tissue covered in blood. Since then I have bled less and the pain has subsided considerably although every little while I will cramp so badly I have to stop whatever I am doing for a minute or two. Have I miscarried? I didn't even know I was pregnant. Please help explain this to me.

I just made it to my 9th week. Everythings been fine, not too nausiated. Sore and tired like usual. Yesterday I went to the restroom and it sounded like something hit the water but I didnt see anything and the water was reddish, brown. When I wiped it was a little brown but not red at all. And since, no blood or anything just a little brown when I wipe. My back hurts a little but Im not cramping at all just a little sore in my abdomen. So I dont know if I'm having a miscarriage because its only brown. Ive been really stressed and upset lately so I don't know if that could be a cause but I'm really nervous now.

I am five and a half weeks pregnant and yesterday when I went to the bathroom I noticed blood on the tissue but I had no abdominal pain at all  so I went to the hospital right away and the doctor took some blood and did a physical exam and also did an ultrasound.  In my blood test it showed that I still had a lot of the pregnancy hormone, and when he did the physical exam my cervix was still closed.  And today I still have a little bit of blood just a few drops every time I use the bathroom.  And I don't know if that is normal I still have to go back to the doctors tomorrow and they will test my blood to see if the pregnancy hormone has gone up or down.  He said it could be implantation bleeding or it could be my uterus just growing a little too fast, but I don't have any breast tenderness and I am not hungry all the time anymore.  So I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions or if anyone has been through something similar?

Hi,just wanted to give some of you peice of mind if i can....I currently have 2 children and every pregnancy is different!My first was a normal pregnancy,my 2nd I had heavy bleeding that started at 3mths and continued throughout the whole pregnancy!! Intially i thought i had misscaried but nope i have a baby boy and was not pleased i had my period through the pregnancy haha I am current pregnant with my 3rd child and am 3mths along and low and behold im having the same annoying pink/brown watery bleeding!Lucky for me i have been through this before so am confident it is the same as the last pregnancy,I will say it is always best to see your doctor for peice of mind and dont beleive anyone who tells you woman dont get their periods during preganancy because im proof that they do and theres no known cause for it.I will also say if you have bleeding thats no painful dont be overly alarmed but do see a doc also cramps followed by blood is NOT a good sign....so good luck ladies I hope your pregnancy's go full term

My breast were tender and have deep blue veins appearerd,  Now they only hurt if i lie on them otherwise I feel nothing,  I do feel tired but I feel its mind games, I dont have morning sickness headaches etc but I also dont have bleeding which i know i should be thankful for.  I do on a daily basis however have cramping very low down, on and off and nothing I cant handle, it feels like im about to start my period any minute but luckily I havent...BUT i cant help but shift this horrible feeling nothing is happening, I feel like im getting obssessed with it and I cant sleep, I just feel like i should have cravings, sickness, the full lot but I have nothing :( can someone tell me if this feeling is normal??? I feel sick with worry :(

But then the next morning when i got up to use the bathroom the bleeding had only got worse but still there was no pain and did not look like a normal period it was a off red with not clots. I waited for it to get better through the day and it nec

hi i had a miscarriage 2 years ago now my little boy would of been 3 this year. i wasnt using protection but i had been with my other half for nearly 2 years and we still together now. i put on a little bit of weight but nothing drastic to make me think i was pregnant, one day whilst at the bank i began to feel dizzy and immediatly knew i had to take a test so a few days after xmas i took a test which resulted in positive so i took another the day after just to be sure and it was positive same as hen i went to the doctors for a 3rd opinion. so i had jus found out i was pregnant 4 days before my 21st i was happy because i wanted a baby but scared after all i was only gonna be 21. we recieved a letter from the hospital to say i was booked in for a scan in the february, in the december i went for a check up ay my local gp where she gave me an ulttrasound scan and felt my stomach to make sure everything was ok,she couldnt hear a heartbeat but told me it was probably because we werent 100% how far along i was, then a week later i recieved another letter from the hospital to say my scan had been brought forward,i knew in my heart something was wrong but yet i had experienced no bleeding/clots or any stomach/back cramps, that is until teh day before my scan a sunday i woke up as i was due to work that day but i cudnt move my stomach was i absolute agony i cud barely make it to the toilet, i laid in bed most of the day. the next morning me and my partner went for our scan and my worst nightmare was confirmed my baby had died :(. no signs or anything was what got me i didnt even know i had lost my baby, never mind the fact didn't know i was pregnant till i was 19 weeks. i had to go through the traumer of labour and it was horrible something no-one should ever have to go through. i would of had a little boy and we name him jake,a few weeks after test to see whether to m/c was anything to do with genetic reasons we had a burial for him. i think about him everyday and miss him alot,but i know that he is safe where ever he is and that one day soon he will have a little brother or sister.

I sat here and read all the posts, Im having a miscarriage right now. Ive been bleeding for 5 days now. Im around 10 weeks, and like someone else stated, I know my body and my breasts arent tender anymore, and I even feel better as far as the sickness, i feel more energized now and etc.. I know whats up. I'll be going to emergency tonight, during the day is just too busy for me. I waited because I thought the bleeding would stop but it got heavier..
   Best thing always is to go to the doctor or ER. I wish all of you the best...

Hi, my name is Vanessa i am just a little over 3 weeks pregnant. I already went into meet with my OB/GYN and it was too early to get a heartbeat. Im so afraid of having a miscarriage.  I went out with a friend and had a couple drinks before i found out and got a little tipsy and bumped into something.  I have a little bruise on the right side of my tummy, so at that point I was probably only 2 weeks and some odd days pregnant.  I am having slight cramping sore breasts and a little bit more hungry than usual.  I am also needing to pee every 15 minutes! I am severely worried about the cramping. Also when i went in for my first ultrasound there was a little bit of blood on the condom when they pulled the ultrasound out but whenever i pee, which i mentioned is quite a bit lol i don't see any blood whatsoever   Can somebody please help me with some answers or some advice I am very very very scared.

Hi, I'm a little confused at the moment. I'm suppose 2 b 12 weeks pregnant on Saturday and last Tuesday I had some bleeding. I had no pain, cramps or clotting. It's more period like. It slows down then picks up again. I had a scan and they said the 'pregnancy sack' is there but they can't c a baby. They wanted 2 do an internal exam coz they said they couldn't c much coz the 'lining of my womb was to thick'. I refused to have it. They took some blood and took some more two days later. This was on Friday and i haven't heard back. Has anyone had a similar experience? I just want answers so me and my husband can move on. X

Reading all your stories have answered a lot of my own questions.

I missed my December period, and in January I took a pregnancy test, it came out positive.  2 days later, I started to bleed, I thought it was just some spotting, but then it became more heavy, and the cramps started to come.  For 1 1/2 days, I fought the painful cramps and aches.  I still went on with my day, I went to work, and suffered, driving was painful, every bump felt horrible.  Then I went to the bathroom at work, feeling cramps like I needed to push, so I did, then I heard a small splash in the toilet.  That night I was still cramping but they were tolerable, and today I am still bleeding but not more pain what so ever.  I plan to take another pregnancy test and plan to go see my family doctor.  I have prepared myself to hear bad news, but I hate to tell the news to my partner and father of my 3 children.  This would be our 2 miscarriage, the last one I didn't even see my doctor because it was just to painful to come to grimpsed of it.  I want to make sure everything is ok, but I just don't want to hear that I miscarriaged again.

My heart goes out to you all.. your stories have helped me.... thank u

I just found out that I'm pregnant,I'm 5weeks pregnant. I did my home pregnancy test on the 11th and came out positive,I had my blood tests done to confirm since it wasn't visible on the sonar. My problem now is,I started bleeding on sunday like I'm having periods until today,went to see my doctor again he took some bloods to the lab because he suspects I'm miscarrying. I did my home pregnancy test again it said I'm negative,I can't lose my baby. I feel like breaking down

Hi ladies!!! I am 9 weeks pregnant in 3 days. i have been bleeding for 9 days now, when i first started bleeding my heart was in my throat. i went to docs to c midwife and she booked appointment for altra scan and i was thinking the worst but baby was fine had a healthy heartbeat.  :) 3 days later i started to bleed heavely and having cramps, like period pains. im passing small dark clots aswell. went to ANE, was waiting ages and she checked my uterus and it was closed so thats good but it could of opened up and miscarried and closed back up :s i still have sore and tender breasts. i was told i had a water infection and bactiria . so im thinking that could be the cause of pains and bleeding. i have scan tomorrow i just hope i havent miscarried... good luck to all u ladies out their who is going threw all this worrying... just think possitive,  women have been threw worse and still have baby. fingers crossed xx

Hi there and welcome.  Well, I'm so glad you have a scan tomorrow.  Hopefully you will get an answer then as I'm sure you are worried sick!  I will tell you that I had heavy bleeding in the latter part of my second trimester with clots being released.  I was scared to death!  Had a healthy baby boy.  Some women do bleed.  Bleeding can occur with an irritated cervix and the pain could indeed be from the UTI/water infection.  Have they give you an antibiotic for the UTI?  Anyway, the scan tomorrow will be great to see how things are going.  But so far, every time they've checked, baby has been fine.  Fingers crossed for you that it remains this way.  Please come back and let us know, okay?  Peace and luck sweetie
