depends how far along you are. for me, mine were all early, so it was like a heavy period, some clots.

An early miscarriage is very similar to a normal period. Many women actually experience early miscarriages, but don't catch them because they are so similar to a normal period.



The further along you are, the heavier the bleeding is and the more cramping and discomfort you feel.

in my experience, I got a very faint positive test and then my "period" came 3 days late. I've always had a heavy period so it really didn't make a difference to me. I was prob only like 3 or 4 weeks when it happened but it was also like 2 years ago so I don't remember too much. I've heard from friends that they were further along and it was a painful experience to have a miscarriage.
