What are first symptoms of miscarriage

This will vary from woman to woman but in my experience I first noticed a pinkish mucus that gradually turned to blood. It can be accompanied with or without cramping and back pain. In my last miscarriage at 14 weeks, I had not symptoms other than that first tinge of pinkish-red which led to heavy bleeding.

Oh yes, I knew I was pregnant with all my losses which occurred between 8-9 weeks and 18 weeks being my latest one.

Oh I should say between 8 and 9 weeks and 11-14 weeks, plus the one at 18 weeks. Forgot one, the 11-14 weeks.

    Thank you I hope I am maybe about 4 or 5 weeks I took a hpt (ept) it was positive waited a few days went to the doctor and the urine test was negative. So on my way home I stopped bought two more test (clearblue easy digital) they were positive I don't want to get my hopes up but I can't help feeling a little sad. I just I knew exactly what's going on.

    Doctor office pregnancy tests will only pick up a pregnancy once your hCg reaches at least 100 mIU, which for the average woman is when they are about 5 weeks pregnant. First Response and EPT can pick it up at 10 mIU. Which is probably why you got a positive with a home kit. Most likely, everything is fine. :)

      I've had two - both miscarriages I was between 5-8 weeks. It would feel like a drop in my gut and then heavy bleeding like a period. If didn't take a pregnancy test, I probably would have never known.

        I would say it's probably not considered a miscarriage in the third trimester, but not sure if the medical term would be still birth or not. Because there are such things as second trimester miscarriages.

              I had the same thing as happened to you during your last miscarriage- no symptoms until pink-tinged blood. My boobs became gradually less sore and my nausea disappeared. After that, though, as the blood picked up I had a horrible burning pain that felt like a sunburn in a hot shower that felt like it was coming from the front side of my uterus. It eventually picked up to cramps that were atrocious.

                  Hi everyone sorry I made it in late and had to feed the boys so far so good it will be a few days before my blood comes back but they did another urine test and it can back positive she said I should be like 4 weeks I have an ultrasound scheduled for 4 weeks from now she said it would have been to early to see anything on the ultrasound I did in the ER. I have a good feeling my levels are going up I had some of the clear blue easy hpt that tell u the weeks and each time the weeks kept going up I'm excited it told my 12yr old son and he is happy thank you all for your concern I appreciate it.

                      With my very first miscarriage I had a chemical pregnancy, so my symptoms was getting a heavy period. With my next two miscarriages there were no symptoms. I had what is called a missed miscarriage. Basically the baby died but my body was not getting the hint. I only found out when I went in to hear first heartbeats and there wasn't one. So about 10 weeks but the fetus's died at about 8 weeks.
                      My third miscarriage I had just a tiny amount of spotting. I went in but the doctor was busy and the nurse I had blew me off. Said that since there was no pain it was nothing and to come back on Monday (it was late Friday afternoon when I went in). But I just KNEW that something was wrong and I was right. I woke up at 2 a.m. in the worst pain of my life, blood everywhere. Hubby rushed me to the hospital and within 30 minutes I was in surgery. Had to have a blood transfusion. I was almost 16 weeks pregnant.
                      I have never once experienced a loss of symptoms with my miscarriages.

                      Natasha Raisoryour third miscarriage kind of sounds like my first, but by the time I got to my doctor's I was bleeding all over the place. Thankfully the hospital was just across the street. I didn't have to have a blood transfusion but doctor said I was close. It was scary and I was 12 weeks along. Most of mine I didn't have much advance notice, they all happened suddenly and unexpectedly.

                      My third miscarriage was by far my most traumatic. The other ones happened so early that even though it hurt and I felt like a failure, at the same time i had only known for a short period. With the third one I found out quite early, because we were trying and due to my history it was closely followed. We even knew the baby was a boy. He would have been our first boy. After it happened we changed what we had planned to name him and instead called him "Adam" because he would have been the first. Took me a very long time to be willing to get pregnant again. I did everything I could to prevent it, including barely having sex with my husband. But God has his own plans because despite a lackluster sex life and being on birth control, I got pregnant about 2 years later with our oldest surviving son.

                        I believe I've had a few miscarriages. My blood is O-, so that's no surprise. I've always felt the miscarriage. It felt like something inside me dropping.
