Lie down and don't move around, drink a lot of water and only get up to use the loo.  This might calm the uterus.  If you begin to fill a maxipad in an hour, or get dizzy, or feel feverish, go to the doctor or to the ER to be seen.  But if the bleeding is not that heavy and you otherwise feel fine, just stay down (on bed or couch) and keep hydrated.  Your goal is to calm uterine contractions.  A woman can bleed during pregnancy for other reasons besides miscarriage, and if it is for one of those other reasons, you might find the bleeding will stop after you quit walking around.  Rule of thumb is, get up 24 hours after the bleeding stops.

Besides the test of filling a maxipad in an hour, if you begin to gush heavily when you get up to use the bathroom and feel like you're dropping a lot of blood out at once (like a half cup or a cup), then that counts as filling a maxipad even if it did not go into a pad.

Drink lots of water, and call the doctor or health line to ask for advice. If you're really worried, go to the hospital :( good luck.

Hey I was told by my Dr when I was having cramps he said if your miscarrying you would have to have intense cramps which is unbearable and heavy bleeding then yes your losing the baby. But if it's just cramps or bleeding then you should be Ok. But if I were you I would ring Dr to check about the dark red. Try to relax

If your levels have dropped, that's typically not a good thing. Sorry.
