I didn't read everyone else's posts but wanted to just give you my experience...in August I had a miscarriage at 4 weeks + 5 days. I had no clue it was coming, I just happened to go to the washroom around lunchtime and saw a small amount of red blood on my underwear, the bleeding increased a little over the next couple hours but it wasn't as much as a period. I had no cramping or any other symptoms. Then just after supper I had pressure, almost like how your pelvic pressure feels during labor, but it still wasn't painful. I called the health line and they recommended going to the hospital. The Dr at the hospital confirmed I was miscarrying and told me to go to my own local hospital when I got back to my home city, (I was visiting my parents 5 hours away from my home) the next day at home I went to my hospital and they tested my blood and confirmed I had miscarried and the next day an ultrasound confirmed I had passed everything. The whole process was not at all what I would have expected, I had no cramping, and less bleeding than a regular period for me. I'm not sure what 5th disease is so I can't help you with that but I wanted you to know what my symptoms were like. Goodluck.
P.S I am now 10 1/2 weeks pregnant with baby #2 (pregnancy #3)
My personal experience was this: At 13 weeks along, I had brown spotting for 2 days which eventually turned to red bleeding (like a period). I went to the emergency room at this point. The cramping became very intense, VERY INTENSE, to the point I was clutching onto the emergency room bed shouting for the nurse to help me!!! The contractions would come every 5 minutes, like clockwork, and last 1 minute each. Just when I thought it couldn't get any worse, my cervix started to dialate. At that point I felt I was being ripped into two. Mind you, I had NO medication. I felt weak, nauseaus, unable to focus, I felt as though I was going to pass out from the extreme pain but couldn't because I had to finish what was happening. I couldn't sit still in the bed and through each segment of pain I would quiver and bend and fold over. After 3 hours of this trauma, a warm gush of blood streamed through my vagina and between my bloody thighs laid my 13 week old baby. I could make out the head, arms and legs. I screamed for the nurse who quickly rushed in and scooped the specimen away. I immediately fell asleep I was so exhausted, it was 5:00am.

This was my second miscarriage. For the first one I had a D&C. This one came on so quickly that I had to pass the baby naturally. Seeing the baby before me brought a sense of closure for me and my husband. I hope to become pregnant again VERY soon as I feel very empty at this point. Whoever tells you a miscarriage isn't painful (emotionally and PHYSICALLY) is wrong. I will never forget the pain, it was horrendous.

If you are pregnant and have light bleeding that's getting progressively worse over the course of a day or 2, please go to the emergency room as soon as possible. You do not want to experience this at home alone.
