Most women notice bleeding as a first symptom. When I had a miscarriage, mine was literally three spots of blood and that was it. I went to the doctor because I'm a worrier, and the baby was found to have no heartbeat. I was 11 weeks, but the baby died at around 8. The next day was when the actual miscarriage happened. I had mild cramping all day, and then I finally stop up and my pants were suddenly soaked. After that it is like the worst menstrual cramps ever, with heavy bleeding and very large clots if you are more than a few weeks along. Other symptoms can include back pain and a sudden loss of pregnancy symptoms. I would greatly advise you to see a doctor soon because if any of the remains are still in there, it can cause an infection that may threaten your future fertility. If you can't afford a doctor, go to the ER. They will help you and get you taken care of. Good luck!
