  • My experience was very bad cramping and CHUNKS of blood and matter coming out and alot of bleeding. It could be different for everyone. You should probably check with your dr. If it was a miscarriage, it could still show you are pregnant on a blood test.

  • Sounds like it could possibly be a miscarriage. I have had several miscarriages and one ectopic pregnancy. Miscarriage pain feels a lot like really strong cramps. I remember with my first miscarriage, it felt like an elephant was sitting on my pelvis, with my second it was more bearable, however. You should go to the doctor and tell them what's going on. They'll do a urine test to check for hcg, if that turns out negative, demand a blood test to confirm. After that they'll do an ultrasound to determine how much "products of conception" (god I hate that word, it's so cold) in your uterus, and depending on that, give you oxytocin and some narcotic pain relief. Don't wait to go to the hospital, get yourself checked out!! And don't make my mistake, if you're not insured, claim that you're indignant so you don't have to pay a big medical bill.

  • Oh, and don't just make an appointment for next week.. if you did have a miscarriage it is very important to go to the ER as soon as possible!

  • Go to the ER and don't wear tampons.
