  • Are you due for your period?
    Can you feel your fundus?
    Do you feel like you might have food poisoning or anxiety?
    What is the interval frequency?

  • I'm not sure when I'm due for my period because I had a miscarriage almost a month ago. No food poisening or anxiety. It is happening maybe twice an hour, but I feel twinges and a pulling sensation constant. This doesn't even make sense to me.

  • it could be your uterus going back down after your m/c

  • I don't know about M/Cs, but maybe your body is naturally finishing this task...
    Any blood or discharge-- other things?

  • No blood. I do have a discharge, but nothing abnormal. My m/c was december 1st and I only bled for 7 days. Everything has been pretty normal since, until today that is.

  • I take that back. I have been having lower back pain and headaches a lot lately. I figured it was just my hormones getting back on track.

  • I had those after my miscarriage... its just your body going through things because of the shock of being pregnant, and now not being pregnant. It has to have time to adjust. I am really sorry about your miscarriage.
