Hi I stumbled across this forum after having no luck with google. It seems many women here are very knowledgeable and can be a better help than some site that is speaking not from experience but from a medical perspective instead. On September 25, 2008 me and my husband had sex early a.m. after about 30 minutes after I got up to use the rest room and take a shower. Nothing felt diff in my underwear (I thought it was just the sperm and stuff in my panties) when I pulled my undies down there were two big clots about the size of my palm. I then screamed for my husband he rushed and looked and then broke down and cried (thinking it was his fault because of the sex). While in tears myself I got in the shower and as soon as I got in I passed another big clot. Washed up a little put on a pad and rushed to the E.R. When we saw the doc, he said the hormones (blood test) were good and were as they should be. He performed a pelvic exam and the cervix was closed but he could he a clot (that had gotten stuck it was small). I never experienced any cramps (not even a little bit ) docs and nurses were happy to hear that. After the pelvic exam he ordered an ultra-sound to see if I was indeed miscarrying. THANK GOD the baby had an excellent heartbeat 165 (I was 9 wks 1 day according to u/s my dates were 9 wks 3 days). I was happy because I was no longer bleeding also. Me and hubby were sent home with a threatened miscarriage diagnosis. Ok it has been 1 wk 1 day since that ordeal and my doc wont get me until Oct 24, 2008. I am so worried because the bleeding had stopped completely, and started to turn brown. It is still brown but I thought it would have stopped by now. Could a threatened miscarriage turn into a missed m/c? Or do you think the brown is a good sign and is old blood? Please oh please give me some insight, I would be so thankful for any and all comments as well as personal experiences if someone experience something similar. I also forgot the mention that the groin discomfort I was having before which I heard was normal have gotten a little more intense. I was wondering if the baby was lying extra low or something when the tech was doing the ultrasound it seems like she was pretty low with the doppler. I'm not sure though because that was my first u/s. another thing is the brown discharge is spotting not bleeding.
