What are the signs and symptoms of a miscarriage?

The last 2 days I had some spotting. Then today, all at once, I got very heavy bleeding and severe abdominal pain. I soaked in a hot bath and was cleaning myself and pulled a huge blood clot out of me. After that came out, the abdominal pain stopped completely. If I did have a miscarriage, what should I do next?

  • I HAD A MISCARRIAGE ON CHRISTMAS. I started spotting first. Then came the cramping that later turned into labor contractions. I went to the hospital while waiting the blood and clots just started rushing out. Clots were huge and i lost a lot of blood (had two transfusions) my partner said it looked like a horror movie. Eventually because of the lost of blood the doctor call for an emergency surgery because the baby would not come out and i lost so much blood. But while being prep for surgery they notice that the baby was right there and i had to push awhile before the baby came. Then they did the d&C. You should go to the doctor, because if you have not passed the baby you could put your/baby (if the is still alive) life in jeoprody. Best wishes. Good Luck

  • I can't believe you didn't get to the ER ASAP...did you not listen to anything your OB told you? Common sense, people...geez.

  • You better go see your doctor.
    You need to make sure about the status of the baby. If the baby didn't make it, your doctor needs to do D&C in order to make sure you passed out all the products of conception.
