I think I am having a miscarriage, I had a BFP on monday, this morning I woke up with bad cramps and I am bleeding moderately heavily. Is this a miscarriage? I called the doctor, he said just wait it out. Anyone who has had a miscarriage, please tell me what were your symptoms? Thank you...

Hi Sarahh, sorry to hear of your worries. How far along are you? I was only about 2-3 weeks when I started bleeding, though mine was not heavy but lasted for like 3 weeks. I never really felt bad cramps, just constantly felt kind of yucky, like menstrual yucky if you know what I mean. Won't your doctor check your pregnancy hormone levels at least to see if they are rising the way they should? I wish you the best, this forum is great, keep in touch, it has helped me out tremendously.

I had my M/c 3/1. I had sever cramps and heavy bleeding. If it gets worse go to the ER, because you might need help finishing the process. That is what I had to do. I hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply suzzie, I am only about 3 weeks past ovulation. The cramps are really bad. Did you go to the doctor when you statred to miscarry? What did they do at the doctor? Thanks again for your kind word.

allison, thank you for a reply also. I am sorry about your miscarriage. How far along were you? How did they help finishing the process?

Sounds like you are early enough that it should be like a heavy period. I was much further (nearly 12 weeks) and found a heating pad on my tummy and another on my back very helpful for the pain, but I've already gone through natural childbirth, so I could handle the physical aspect of a m/c. If you continue bleeding for weeks on end, you might need a D&C, but your doctor can advise you on that. So sorry for your loss :(

Thanks Susan. I am really hoping it will just be like a period, I dont want to have to go to the doctor for a d&c.

I went to the docs like a week after bleeding started, thats the soonest they could see me. They sent me to do blood work on thursday and then again on saturday to get an idea of the hormone levels. Got the results on the following tuesday, they just called and said I was going to to miscarry and I didn't need to be seen unless I had a problem. I am not sure what day I really had the m/c because I never pa__sed any tissue or clots or had really bad cramps.

Thanks, suzzie. So your bleeding was never really heavy? Mine is not heavy, it is moderate, but bright red and kind of watery with really bad cramps on and off.

How do you know if you need a D & C?

after my mc I bled for 3 1/2 wks! I went to a new dr at about 3 wks and she did a v____al us and checked my uterus to see if there was any tissue that still needed to come out.

Your doctor will know if you need a D&C. If you bleed endlessly for weeks and weeks, continue having pains in a week or so, the discharge smells or looks greenish, you have a fever or severe abdominal pain, you need to contact your doctor. Your body knows what to do though, so wait it out (I know . .. ) and you'll get through it. Hang in there. . . .

Sarahh - March 2

Hi, I am sorry to keep asking questions, I am just a little worried if things are going properly. It seems just like a regular really heavy period with bad cramps. My doctor said just wait it out, I guess since it is so early? Did anyone else have a miscarriage where it was just like a bad period and then everything was fine?

thats how my dr told me it would be for me too. She said since I wasn't very far along I would start what would be just like a heavy period. She gave me some pain killers in case the cramps got too bad. Although with me I bled lightly for 3 1/2 wks. My new dr just told me that some women have "pokey" hcg levels that just won't drop. She said the normal mc is to bleed heavy just like a period except usually more cramps and bleeding. It sounds like what you are going through is normal. Keep asking questions until you feel comfortable!! I asked about a thousand when I was mc. But you seem fine! How long have you been bleeding? Just a few days?
