    Exclamation i think im having a m/c. HELP ASAP!?

    i posted before on a diff thread and didnt get much of a response so i am hoping this will help more. 3 months ago i had a very heavy period with lots of clotting. The next 2 months i just spotted lightly if anything. about a week ago i started spotting very light pink. this turned to light brown which i hear is "old blood". i figured this was just due to stress considering i am a mother of 2 at the age of 19. well, three nights ago i started bleeding pretty heavy with clotting and bright red blood. that night my boyfriend and i was riding around and all of a sudden i got these horrible cramps in my abdomen and lower back and upper thighs that felt like LaBoR!!! it was so extreme it nearly took my breath away. everytime the cramps came i felt blood just come out really bad. we went home immediately and as soon as i got out blood just poured. i couldnt take a single step without it just gushing out bad. i made it to the bathroom with my jeans soaked in blood and it was these awful clots just falling into the toilet. i cleaned myself up and changed clothes and went straight to the ER. they did a preg test on me and it came back positive! i was shocked because i have had no symptoms at all. i had been lifting things a lot trying to get some things moved in and packed away and my children weigh 22 and 32 lbs and i lift them all day everyday. they did a pelvic exam and said my cervix was closed. they did a blood test and my hcg level was very low. he said i didnt appear to me very far along but that my level should have been higher so that'd mean that either i was far along and it wasnt climbing anymore which was impossible or i was early along and the level had peaked and declined which would mean i was having a miscarriage. he did an ultrasound and there was nothing? no bleeding in the ovaries which he checked for, no baby ectopic pregnancy (however u spell that), and no baby!? and no sack either. i mean it was just pitch black. when the doctor saw the print out of the u/s he said "WOW! this is rare?!" he seemed not to want to come right out and tell me the results or that it was in fact a m/c. he said i should wait a few days and go back for more blood tests to check for infection but said nothing about another u/s and mentioned my obgyn might suggest a d&c if she thought it was neccessary. as soon as the cramps and bleeding started my gut just told me this is a miscarriage. i'm pretty agrivated that the ER doctor didnt come out and tell me what in the world is going on?! while i was there and once after i got home there was something in the toilet that looked kind of like nearly disolved toilet paper but it came from me? i figured if it was any hope in saving the pregnancy he would have admitted me as heavy as i was bleeding and he knew this? this was 2 days ago, i'm still bleeding quite heavy, although not having to change clothes every so often. i'm going thru probably 12-15 huge pads a day. i have no idea how far along i am/was but im guessing no more than 7-8 wks. my questions are.. is this a miscarriage? if the u/s came up clear does that mean it was expelled on its own? if this IS a m/c how long will i bleed like this and/or return to normal periods? and if this is a m/c have i endured the worst of it already? this is very stressful and agrivating as im sure you can only imagine since i have 2 children ages 1 and 3 already, and a huge house to take care of as well thoughts and information would be GREATLY appreciated asap! thanks to all who reply.

    I would seriously get that checked out. It sounds like a m/c.
    I pray that it isn't for your sake.
