Wasn't more painful than a heavy period. Bled very hard and clotty for 2-3 days and then had a slightly longer period like bleeding for about a week and a half more. I was about 9 weeks when they declared it had died and I wanted to just do it all natural. Took two more weeks to start.

call ur ob doctors and get in immedently. they will have to do blood test and altra sound to make sure the baby is okay. cause i had a miscairge with blood and i was only 2 weeks along. I hope everything goes well for you. and let ur husband or BF fiancae know about it and have him meet u at the doctors. cause some girls when there pregnant still gets there period. so i would call. good luck.

Ditto for the miscarriage I had at 5 weeks. But also,I had some brown spotting that turned in to bleeding when I was about 5 wks pregnant with my daughter.It turned out to be nothing.Go see your OB to get everything checked.

usually they cannot do anything for you this early in the game. Its not painful  more like a heavy period. You can spot and be okay  .. i spotted with my 4 month old  until 8 weeks  ( i had an early los    8 weeks before i got pregnant with her) so i thought i would lose her too/

I had a miscarriage at 5 weeks and it was just like a heavy period. I'm sorry you're going through this :(

spotting and bleeding doesn't always mean miscarriage. i've been spotting since 6 weeks because of a poylp on my cervix. if you don't have any cramping i wouldn't just suspect the worst right off the bat. i had cramping and heavy bleeding for two days and then mild cramping and bleeding for like another week after that when i had my miscarriage at around 6 weeks.

Pretty much like this, but I was a little further and the cramping was severe.

Was no different than a reallllllly heavy period for me. I dont have heavy periods and I usually only bleed for two days. That lasted five.

Give your doctor a call to see if it actually is a miscarriage first.  They can do serial beta hCG tests to see what your hormone levels are doing and can give you a more definitive answer.  I've had both a first tri miscarriage and bleeding during normal pregnancies, so it can go either way.  Lots of luck to you!

 So sorry to hear this. I was about that far along when I had mine. I had always had painful periods, so I'm just speaking from my experience...I bled for about 2 weeks. The first 3 days, was very heavy & clotty. Those first three days were very painful. Go to your ob and have him/her prescribe some pain meds after doing bloodwork to fully determine it is a miscarriage. Follow up in case you need a d&c. ~Hugs~
