Strange miscarriage??


First, sorry for the long post and also sorry if there is TMI for anyone, I'm just very confused and I would love any insight you might have!

I am just finishing an early miscarriage and have another blood test tomorrow followed by an appointment with my doctor on Tuesday. I had an early miscarriage once before but this one was very different and I'm wondering if anyone thinks it would be worth asking my doctor for more tests?

Has anyone had experience with something like this:

I got a faint positive hpt around 10dpo, but noticed light bleeding the same day. The bleeding continued and got quite heavy 2 days later and remained heavy for 5 days. It slowed down for 2 days and then got VERY heavy for another 5 days with tons of clots. So I've had 2 full weeks of bleeding so far although it seems to finally be slowing down now.

The strange part is I kept taking home pregnancy tests and the lines got progressively darker every day for about a week (by 15/16dpo it was pretty much as dark as the control line) which leads me to think the pregnancy was still progressing even with the heavy bleeding? When the bleeding temporarily lightened the line seemed to stall, and when it got heavy again the line was clearly lighter (and has now almost disappeared).

It seems like most early miscarriages (including my first one) go more like this: A line appears on hpt, gets darker for a while and at some point starts getting lighter until it disappears AND THEN the bleeding starts.

I feel like mine was a bit out of order, and perhaps the bleeding caused the miscarriage (rather then the miscarriage causing the bleeding)? I am still casually breastfeeding my 14 month old, maybe that is keeping my progesterone levels too low? I have no idea this is very new to me I've just been obsessively googling and thats the best I came up with.

I'm getting older quickly and don't want to waste time if there's something that can be fixed.

Does anyone have any idea? Thanks very much for reading and any help!!

It wasn't as early, but with my 12 week loss, I was bleeding for a week and a half before I lost the pregnancy. The baby passed only days before the actual miscarriage. It might be the same to some early losses too. They're all, unfortunately, very different. I'm sorry for your loss.

I know what ya mean tho, my last early mc was different than this one. The one before that was different from my two recent ones.

Each miscarriage can be different. I've had several and no two have been the same. For some, I've bled for up to 2 weeks before the loss, others I've had just minor spotting here and there before the loss, and some I haven't had any bleeding until the miscarriage started. It's so hard to say because there are so many things that could have caused it to happen that way. I'd say your best bet is to bring your questions to your doctor and see what they say.

Totally echoing this.

MC #1 i had absolutly no signs prior to the time period everything passed. Everything seemed perfectly fine and then day i bled, heavy and dark red followed by severe cramps and in less than 10 hours everything passed with lots of small clots and the sac passed about the size of a tangerine. It took two weeks post last bleed for the test to be negative.

MC#2 had i not tested at 10dpos i probably would have never known i was pregnant. Everything about my period was as normal as usual except that it was a few days late and my positive test was only positive for literally one day (i took lots of them tho bc i just had a feeling something wasnt right). I had small clotting and cramping just as normally so w AF (my periods are generally heavy, last a week, and are clotty)

MC#3 i was one day late (i only have 10 day LT phase, on a good month). Test was very faint for two days. I started spotting the day i took the first test. Then at day 3, no spotting but test was basically negative. A digi hpt said not pregnant. Day 4 heavy, dark red bleeding. No cramps. No clots. Test back to very very faint. Day 5 the dark red bleed continues. HCG was 39.7. Day 6 heavy dark red bleeding. Still No clots. No cramps. HPT was darker than ever and popped up quickly. Still not as dark as the control line tho. Day 7 i only had spotting and passed this dark red stringy piece, about the size of my middle finger. It was odd and then suddenly all the bleeding stopped. No cramping. Hcg was 148.2 everyone, including the doc, thought we were in the clear and chalked the bleeding up to a possible SCH. My hpt came up dark, as dark as co trol line. The digi said pregnant. I went four days. Everything was normal. Then on day 12 my uterus felt heavy. Like i was 20 weeks pregnant. I had a gush of blood that turned into a light flow. Day 13 i passed this very thick brown cm. It was the consistency of mud. No clots. Had my hcG checked. It dropped to 18. I had heavy feeling and minor cramps for about two days after that. Once the mud like material passed, i was totally done spottng and ive had nothing since.

I just read your whole post I'm so sorry it turned out that way for you too You were spot on when you described it as a roller coaster, it's so hard when you finally start to get your hopes up that everything will be ok and then it's not. Thank you for the message I hope you're doing alright xx

Edit: also it's good to hear your doctor sounds like she is really on top of it. My doctor was more like, just wait and see what happens. Didn't suggest any possible reasons or tests (except the blood tests), which makes me wonder if it will just happen again next time.
