I was 19 weeks when we found out we lost him at just over 16 weeks. Had to be induced. We chose to look at him. It was very hard.

You can always go to the ER for peace of mind. They do an ultrasound and everything. That's what I did. In my mind it's better to know. Like if I WAS miscarrying I'd want to know so I don't have false hope. And if they find out everything is fine then they can tell you WHY you are bleeding. And most likely put you on pelvic rest.

My first miscarriage, 6 weeks, was like a normal period. No clots really at all, and little cramping.
My second was terrible cramping and lots of clots.
If you think there is an issue, go. It's better to go for nothing, than not go and have it be something.

Mine was a 'Missed Miscarriage' I knew something was wrong, I was 8 weeks and I went to the hospital. Baby had no heartbeat and I ended up getting a D&C when I was around 11 weeks.

Also I should add, I had NO idea I had lost him 3 weeks prior. We found out through ultrasound because Dr. couldn't find his heartbeat.



Doesn't hurt to go in if you're worried. Hope all turns out well for you. :)

I was nine weeks along and knew it was coming as ultrasounds had confirmed it earlier. My bleeding started one night and was pretty light. By the next morning I was cramping profusely and passing clots the size of shrimp. I ended up needing an emergency D&C because I was losing so much blood.

Mine was 5 weeks 3 days.

I didn't have any cramping the entire time.
It started as pink blood, turned red but still light.. Then went to heavy bleeding, Then bleeding with tiny clots, then bleeding with normal AF size clots, then I passed the Placenta and sac (about 3 inches long, an inch wide, liver/fleshy feeling) Then bleeding was heavy and lots of clots.. Then back to normal AF type bleeding..

Im praying for you! I hope you don't have to go through it :-(

Did you have them tested before that? You can't really judge if a pregnancy is viable or not if you've only been given one set of numbers. You also need to remember that every pregnancy and woman is different. Here is some information for you. Here is the link I got the information from.
