anyone who has experience miscarriage read!!


OK, so I'm 5 almost 6 weeks pregnant. And yesterday I had to go to the ER cause I woke up in the morning with brown blood in my undies. DH and I had sex the night before, the first time since I found out I was pregnant. They took my blood at the ER and they said everything was okay. Then they did an ultrasound on my belly and couldn't find anything, so they did a trans vaginal Ultrasound and they saw a yolk sac. They told me to go home and put me on bed rest. Well I didn't bleed anymore yesterday. Today I've been having brown discharge with little brown flakes. Now I just went to the bathroom and there was a brown clot the size of a nickel in the toilet. Honestly, from your experience does it sound like I've miscarried? I have an appointment Thursday, but maybe I should go sooner to check everything out? Or is there anything else it could be? I've had no cramps today, or pain, and I didn't yesterday. I don't know what to think.

its probably just some spotting of old blood...i had that my first pregnancy...and having sex just knocked it loose. but, you never know, and if you feel like you need to go to the hospital or call you doctor you should. as long as there is no double over cramping or bright red blood, things should be ok.

I have experience but I really don't wanna tell u relax everything is fine, or oh that sounds bad, because ppl experience miscarriages differently. But for your peae of mind try to get check earlier than thursday, because u might end up being nervous all the time till ur appointment. I hope everything is fine.

I had exactly the same thing, at exactly the same date. i had a scan 2 weeks later and baby was there with a good strong heartbeat. brown blood is much less likely to be a miscarriage than bright red blood and even that isn't always bad news. keep positive!

I'm going through a miscarriage right now, and all mine started out was with brown blood and clots, for about 3 days on and off no cramping, then it turned to bright red and bad cramps. So you might still be in the clear with just the brown blood, but if it changes to bright red or you start to cramp real bad I might would go back to the dr just to see whats going on. I have my follow up on the 14th to make sure mne has gone all in well if I dont end up there before hand. Good luck, fingers crossed for you!!!

Thank you everyone. Today the bleeding has stopped. Nothing when I woke up and I've been to the bathroom twice and nothing then. And I was sick this morning, but I know you can still have pregnancy symptoms after a miscarriage. But I'm still optimistic about me being sick this morning and that the bleeding stopped and didn't turn red.

I was interested to see your post - I'm around 5.5-6 weeks too. I started spotting after sex, and it has been brown with the small flakes as well. It has been going on for a week now. It has been really light - it only seems to happen if I am straining to go the bathroom (sorry, TMI). There's no red, and no cramping. I left a message with my Dr and the nurse called back and said not to worry unless it gets heavy/red.

I had a transvaginal ultrasound a couple of days into the spotting and the Dr said everything looked great, and my bloodwork numbers were good too. I don't have my next appt until Dec 16, but I was thinking of seeing if I could get my bloodwork done again this week for peace of mind.

I've been mostly worried about these little flakes though, and was really interested that you have them too.

i had a MC and believe me, you will know that its happening. it started out with light bleeding but within a day it got really heavy, red with big clots. also the cramps were sort of like contractions- hurts like hell for a bit the nstops, then repeat.

with my daughter, i had bleeding from week 7-9. it was brown and with little flakes, but not much cramps. there were no big clots either. so i had my baby 7 months later and everything was fine!

you just have to hang in there and wait to get checked out in a week or so to make sure everythign is still on, but i think it will be ok from what you are discribing. good luck hunny
