What are some of the signs of miscarriage?

I'm six weeks pregnant and wondering how I'll know if I miscarry. I have heard that some people don't have any symptoms. Is that true?

  • As far as I know, you bleed and there is possible cramping. If you start to bleed see your doctor immediately. It's not always a sign of miscarriage, it can be a sign of dehydration. But definitely see a doctor.

  • I was only 2 weeks when I miscarried and it hurt a lot I didn't even know I was pregnant but knew it must be a miscarriage because I was cramping so bad and so long I didn't actually bleed until after the pain.

  • I had a miscarriage when I was 3 month along. I new I was having a miscarriage, even before I made it to the hospital. I had SEVERE cramping and very heavy bleeding. The pain was so bad, that at times I couldn't even stand up straight.
    If you think you are having a miscarriage, I would go to your doctors asap.

  • It suffered a miscarriage at 91/2 wks. It started with light bleeding which got very heavy and didn't stop, I ended up having to call an ambulance (lost alot of blood) My advice for any bleeding...go to the hospital asap

  • I had NO cramping and just the tiniest spot of red red blood...then it turned to brown. But I had an awfule feeling and my symtpoms has started to deminish so I called the doc and they did an U/S and told me I had lost it....So I don't think you can always know for sure unless you have the obvisous heavy bleeding and cramps...but every one is different. All I can say is don't worry until you have to and trust your instincts, they are your best friend in a time like this.

  • You don't always know. I just had one I had no symptoms. Thought the same thing, you can't have a miscarriage with out bleeding. But what happened was my baby stopped growing at 8 weeks and I was 10 weeks pregnant. There was no heartbeat and my levels began to drop. I had to have a D &C. Or I had to wait till my body caught up and natuarally miscarried. Sorry to scare you but I asked this when I was getting my levels checked and everyone told me I would have bleeding and I would know. I had false hope and I don't want that to happen to you. Trust your instincts. Hope you have a healthy baby.

  • The day before I had a sick feeling. I told my husband something wasn't right. The very next day I woke and I was spotting. I went to my clinic and they told me to go to the emergency room. I got there and waited.............................. Forever and when they finally saw me she said" Yes you did miscarry." She said since the baby passed thru there is no need to a dnc. i went home and had cramps so bad my husband called the ambulance. by the time they got there a big gray piece of (I have no ideal) passed thru me. They said the doctor should have done a dnc. it was terrible.

  • I had a miscarriage a month ago. This is what happened to me. At around 8 weeks, I started spotting brown. This spotting last for 3 days. I went in to the doctor. He did a pelvic exam. The cervix were closed, but after the poking and proding, I starting bleeding red. He sent me in for an ultrasound. The ultrasound showed that the baby stopped growing at 5 weeks. When I saw the yolk sac measure just 5 weeks, I knew I was in the process of having a miscarriage. I was really upset. I passed clots (the actual miscarriage) natually 2 days later. I started the brown bleeding on a Sunday. Red bleeding on the Wednesday. Chills on Thursday night, and passed it on Friday. I had continued red bleeding like a period for about a week. All is normal now. I did not go in for a D and C because it was an early miscarriage. I didn't start cramping until that Wednesday of the pelvic exam. I cramp for a few days. I hope this helps
