- Very early miscarriages(<4 weeks): How do you know if you've had one??
- Q: My friend and I are wondering if there are any symptoms of a very early miscarriage. I'm referring to miscarriages that occur within the first few weeks, usually before one even thinks to take a pregnancy test.For example, does it cause heavier periods? Does it alter the timing of the period? Is the clotting and heavy pains associated with a very early miscarriage lighter than the clotting and pains associated with a miscarriage that occurs further along in the pregnancy? Is there generally any pain/contractions that occur at all during a very early(4 weeks or less) miscarriage?What if you notice clear or white mixed in with your period? Is that a sign of a miscarriage?My friend and I were wondering, because we've both had weird stuff occur in the past and we didn't know if perhaps it was sign of an early miscarriage or not(as in, before we would know we were pregnant).Thanks for any feedback.
- A: Miscarriages occur in about 15–20% of pregnancies. Most occur in the first 13 weeks of pregnancy. Some miscarriages take place before a woman misses a menstrual period or is even aware that she is pregnant. The process of fertilization—in which the male sperm and the female egg join—is complex. Miscarriage can be caused by any one of a number of things before, during, or after this process. Often, this is nature's way of ending a pregnancy in which the fetus was not growing as it should and would not have been able to survive. The cause of miscarriage often is not known. Most factors that cause a miscarriage are genetic. Sometimes a miscarriage is caused by the woman's health problems. Bleeding is the most common sign of miscarriage. Most women who have vaginal spotting or bleeding during the early months of pregnancy have healthy babies. Some of these women, though, will have a miscarriage. This is why bleeding during early pregnancy is called threatened miscarriage. If you bleed while you are pregnant, you and your doctor will need to be watchful for a few days. In the very early stages, it is hard to tell if the pregnancy is going to miscarry. Your doctor may order blood tests or perform an ultrasound exam. Sometimes mild cramping of the lower stomach or a low backache may occur along with bleeding. Bleeding may persist, become heavy, or occur along with a pain like menstrual cramps or the breaking of the amniotic sac (the fluid-filled sac that surrounds the fetus in the woman's uterus). If you have heavy bleeding and think you have passed fetal tissue, place it in a clean container and take it to the doctor for inspection. Your doctor will want to examine you. If your doctor thinks a miscarriage has occurred, he or she may do a pelvic exam to see if your cervix has dilated (opened). If the cervix has dilated and fetal tissue is lost, a miscarriage is certain. If your doctor does not think that a miscarriage has occurred, you may be asked to rest and to avoid having sex. Although these measures have not been proved to prevent miscarriage, they may help reduce bleeding and discomfort. Warning Signs of Miscarriage Call your doctor if you have: Spotting or bleeding without pain Heavy or persistent bleeding with abdominal pain or cramping A gush of fluid from your vagina but no pain or bleeding Passed fetal tissue
- At what point do most miscarriages occur?
- Q: I'm currently 5w4d with baby#2. I know miscarriages can happy anytime.I'm just wondering when MOST miscarriages occur, and if your HCG level would be lower than "normal" in blood work if you're likely to miscarry?And do most miscarriages happen with first pregnancies (before carrying any babies to term)? Or are they just as likely to occur with subsequent pregnancies (after having children already)? I have a 15 month old daughter - she was my first and only pregnancy before this one.I'm just being paranoid I guess. I really want to tell my employer, even though it's early... because they are awesome about maternity leave and I would like them to be prepared. They are also already suspicious (due to my doctors appts, drinking decaf, etc). But I'm scared of something happening after I tell them (they would be understanding even if it did). I don't know, I'm not sure how long to wait. I won't be able to hide it long either. I started showing at 10 weeks with my daughter (obviously pregnant by 14 weeks).Thanks everyone! :o)
- A: Congratulations! I am 7 weeks today! Most miscarriages occur in the first trimester, but I don't think there is specific time when they occur most during that period. Again, they could happen with the first baby, with your 3rd, or you could be one of the lucky ones that never have to experience one! It's all about the egg & sperm and how healthy they are. I PRAISE GOD that I have never had to experience one and pray I never do! I had low hCG levels with my daughter and with this pregnancy as well, so you can't really go by that unless the numbers start to decline or stall. As long as they rise and double as they should, regardless how low the start number is, then you're fine. If you're someone that doesn't mind people knowing should something happen, then tell them your good news! To be honest, they'll know something is up SHOULD something happen anyway. That is something one doesn't get over soon and it's bound to show on your face. Best of luck for a healthy & happy 9 months! Sticky babies to both of us! xo
