Miscarriage at 13 weeks

So I miscarried at 13w 3d. I had gone to er at about 8 pm the night it happened for mild cramping (what felt like contractions) and mild bleeding. They took urine and blood and did a heartbeat, which they found. The urine test came back as severe UTI. They gave me amox for the infection and sent me home. By 12am i was convinced these were contraction pains. They got more intense and more frequent with every passing hour. I even called back up to e.r around 1 am because of the pain and she insisted it was from the UTI and didnt see labor at 13 weeks being possible. By 3:30 the pain became so intense and eventually my water broke. I went back to e.r and 10 mins later everything came out. Tons of blood, placenta, clots. Everything. They transferred me where they did more testing and realized I didnt even have a UTI. Im just so unsure of what went wrong. I had 1 previous pregnancy that carried full term without complications. Although because of mine and my husbands blood type I had to get a rohgam (sp) shot after the first pregnancy and after the miscarriage. Could that have contributed to the miscarriage? Im just nervous about trying to concieve again after this

I'm so sorry for your loss! That is heartbreaking! I had a loss right around that point and it was very traumatic for me. We did eventually get pregnant again, and it was very stressful because I was anxious about another loss. Did they determine what caused the test for a UTI to come back positive? UTIs can cause spontaneous miscarriages, so that's why I ask. Did they do any fetal or placental testing? I, too, had a prior baby born healthy at full term and was very confused as to why all this was happening, but I was able to go on and have two more babies afterward.  Best wishes to you for healing and future babies!
