Miscarriage & Still Birth Board Index

Beanie, I'm at 6 weeks and 5 days. I've been told by the doctors that it's normal too. They explain it away as just my uterus adjusting, but I can't help but be concerned. I know it could go either way. I feel like since I found out I've been biting my nails hoping I make it to the 12 week mark. Not that it puts me in the clear completely, but as they say, your less likely to miscarry after that point.
i recently had a miscarriage at 5 weeks. and by recent i mean within the last week. mine started at work i had gone to use the bathroom and noticed i was bleeding went to the er imediatly and told it was a threatned miscarriage to go home and rest. this was monday. i spotted on and off brown blood for the next week and they checked my hcg level every three days. saturday i had what felt like mild contractions and then started having heavy cramping passed tissue and alot of blood. it was over quickly. im still bledding and the dr said i will for awhile. my thoughts are with you. its a horrible thing to go through. again i agree with the others though, cramping is a normal part of pregnancy and even some spotting is not to be concerned about. best wishes for a happy outcome!
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.
