4 weeks pregnant, heavy cramps with moderate bleeding


Went to see my doctor today, cramping is pretty strong non stop...bleeding bright red and some brown as well (1 pad about every 4 hours)
Did ultrasound but can't see anything...either too small or miscarried..
My question is if I miscarried wouldn't the cramping stop after the miscarriage?
Right now it's a waiting game to see if anything shows in 2 weeks, but honestly I'm frustrated and feeling bummed..my doctor said more than likely I miscarried but if I did miscarry, when is cramping supposed to stop?

I think with MC, you kindof move into like a natural period. My mc was manually removed, so Im not too sure.
GL, I hope all is well.

So sorry you're going through this. From what I've ready, an early miscarriage at around 4 weeks would be much like a period as the bean would be so small you wouldn't really notice anything other than a few clots and the cramps would be like period cramps but perhaps a little stronger. Are they checking your hcg levels to see if they are rising? Two weeks is so long to wait. Would they let you come back sooner? Could you do a couple of home preg tests over a few days to see if they are still positive or getting darker or lighter? Hope you get some answers soon.

Doctor said in a week to redo test and if I mc today the test will be negative by then....
Pretty much I was sent home and wait...I feel doctor doesn't take me serious because I'm only 4 weeks, I guess they don't take it too serious because it's common
If cramping gets worse by tomorrow I will go back to emergency and demand they check my hcg...
Just frustrating! My breast are still sensitive..but cramping is non stop a lil bit stronger than menstrual cramps...I bend down to pick up my cell and my uterus hurt!! Felt supper tender!
Just hate this waiting game

i had this after getting bfp (the same day as getting bfp!) went to casualty 2 days later, they did hcg level check, then got referred to early pregnancy unit at local hospital for another level check.
couldnt see from your post where you live, if in the uk then you may be able to book directly into your local EPU and you'll get taken seriously there xx

Woke up today fine.... Zero cramping and bleeding but some mild nausea....
I'm thinking if I miscarried like doc said, shouldn't I be bleeding for more days? Period like?
I'm beginning to think I'm still pregnant, breast are tender and nauseated, those are pregnancy symptoms!
Or does my body think I'm still preg? Is it possible to mc and just bleed for one day?
I live in california, next doc appt next week

some people do mc without any bleeding/cramping, think it's called a missed m/c? I was convinced the doc was correct that I was m/c after having 4 days of bleeding heavy enough to change a sanitary towel every 2 hours, but, everything was ok!

everyone's completely different when it comes to this, best bet is get checked out at either your docs (insist on bloods to check hcg, and of course the rpt bloods 24hours later to check if they are rising/falling) or swap docs if you can x

It does sound strange that you'd only bleed for a day. You'd think if you had a very early miscarriage you'd just kind of get your period so it would last the normal amount of time... I had bleeding leading up to my BFP and I know some people get some bleeding at the start when their period is due and then in stops as the pregnancy hormones start to kick in. I'd be buying up some preg tests and doing one every morning and night (just go at least three hours before you use the bathroom) and checking if they are getting darker. Hope you're doing ok

Still spotting mucous red for the last 4 days...went to see my doc and I should be close to 6 weeks.. He did a vaginal discharge and saw nothing.
I have been feeling horrible these last days, fast heartbeat, high blood pressure 149/77, extremely nausea, and tender breast,
Took out blood today for hcg count and will take again in 2 days...
Since my cervix was completely closed doc suspects ectopic pregnancy because I have full blown symptoms of pregnancy and the mucous bleeding is not enough to convince him it's a miscarriage...
I get my results in 3 days...
