how did your miscarrage start

I think I am having a miscarrage. I am having brown spotting off and on, no cramping, but my boobs dont feel full anymore and have stopped hurting.

  • I had a really REALLY bad pain in one side down by my uterus. I have a high pain tolerance so it was bad enough I took a pregnancy test and once I knew I was pregnant I went to the hospital.

  • It's been 9 years since I had one so I don't remember how it started but I do remember bleeding heavier than usual and being in a lot of pain as well as passing a lot of big blood clots and tissue. You can spot after sex or strenuous work and your boobs don't hurt the whole pregnancy so you might not be having a miscarriage but if you are worried go to a doctor. GL I hope everything is ok.

  • How far along are you? It is normal to have some spotting especially after sex and some people even still have their period while pregnant although it's not as common. I've had 3 miscarriages...all about a month or month and a half along. I had major cramping and what started out as a little brown spotting for a couple days, then red, then really bright red accompanied by huge clots of tissue.

  • Mine started with just minor spotting, and when I got up to take a morning pee, a fetus just slipped out. I had no pain, no cramps until I developed placenta previa and had bad cramps and lost the second twin a week later.

  • I have had 2. I started spotting with both...wasn't brown was bright pink then red. Then I had severe cramps and pains that followed. I have had brown spotting with my son after I had sex with my hubby. Scared me to death after losing 2 but it happens. I would call your Dr. asap to get checked.
