I have always been curious as to how one can tell if a period is just a regular period, or if it's possible to be pregnant for say a couple of weeks and then miscarry... would it be the same as a regular period (with regular cramps, etc) or is it a lot different, even if the pregnancy is that early?
I read up on this about a month ago, me and my b/f had a scare and I wasn't sure if my period was a miscarriage or not.
You can have cramps with miscarriage, but there will be alot more blood, and liver like clumps (if you will)... the bleeding will last longer and be heavier... Believe me you'll know... I was told if you think you've had a miscarriage keep the "stuff" that comes out and take it to a Dr. to have tests done so you can figure out if it really was a misscarriage...
Hope this helps somewhat!! There are alot of great websites you can find info too!! Good luck!!
I agree with Fairybug! You will definitely know if it's a m/c. There is a lot more blood and a lot more pain. I miscarried at 5 wks. and it was the worst pain I've ever went through in my life. Some people say it doesn't hurt that bad, but for me it did!
My OB told me that alot of people miscarry and never even know they are pregnant...they just think it's a heavier period or they think their period is early. Sometimes there is a lot more pain and sometimes there isn't. Unless you go to a dr. you can never really know for sure.
An early miscarriage could occur because your body is rejecting the baby because it is not forming properly, something may be wrong, or just because...Sometime you never know why for sure. The first time I got pregnant I had an early miscarriage. My period was 2 weeks late and when it came it was all at once with HUGE bloodclots and pain. I knew then that I had really been pregnant, it was easy to tell that I had miscarried rather than gotten a late period. I heard later that alot of women miscarry with their very first pregnancy. I guess our bodies may have a hard time adjusting to pregnancy and need a "trial run" sometimes. Ive had 2 children since and have had no problems.
