Miscarriage symptoms

What Are the Signs of Miscarriage?

Miscarriage symptoms can vary, depending on the type of miscarriage you may be having. Always contact your doctor straightaway if you think you are experiencing miscarriage symptoms.

Wondering if you are experiencing miscarriage symptoms can be very distressing. Researching symptoms all over the internet but not finding the right answers. Reading articles or stories and finding scary information about what could be happening.

Even if it’s the last thing you feel like facing up to, it is best to contact your doctor.

Typical Miscarriage Symptoms - Early Pregnancy (First Trimester)

  • You feel like you are experiencing less pregnancy symptoms
  • Light spotting
  • Light brown vaginal discharge
  • Discharge which has a pink tinge to it
  • Passing blot clots
  • Light brown bleeding turning into red bleeding and getting heavier
  • Abdominal cramping
  • Abdominal cramping accompanied with spotting or light bleeding
  • A severe or sharp pain on one side – a sign of an ectopic pregnancy
  • Feeling weak or dizzy
  • Raised body temperature

In the case of a missed miscarriage, there may not be any feelings or symptoms.

The Difference Between Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Early Miscarriage Symptoms

Some miscarriage symptoms are similar to early pregnancy:
  • Symptoms of implantation bleeding include light brown or red spotting.
  • You can experience mild uterine cramping in early pregnancy as your uterus changes to adjust to being pregnant.

Therefore it is natural to feel worried about the feelings and symptoms you are having in early pregnancy.

If you are worried, contact your doctor directly. That really is the best thing you can do. Get yourself checked. There is nothing worse than searching the internet and not knowing.

Miscarriage Symptoms After the First Trimester

Many of the miscarriage symptoms from the first trimester plus:
  • Severe pains in your womb area or lower back
  • Regular cramping which feel like contractions (every 5 to 10 minutes)
  • Baby / fetal movement stops or slows down significantly
  • Vaginal bleeding
  • Vaginal discharge starts to wet more than one panty liner in a short space of time – this could be a sign of amniotic fluid escaping

How Common are Miscarriages in Early / Late Pregnancy

According to miscarriage statistics, around 1 in 4 women miscarry. Miscarriage statistics cannot be exact as some women are not aware that they have miscarried, in the case of chemical pregnancies and early miscarriages (between 0-6 weeks of being pregnant).

It is estimated that around 80% of miscarriages happen in the first trimester with the first six weeks being most common. After the first six weeks, the risk of miscarriage drops as the foetus develops itself.

The risk of miscarriage during the second trimester is between 2-3%.

Always contact your doctor straightaway. Miscarriage symptoms may not mean that you will miscarry. Some women experience a threatened miscarriage and go on to have a full term pregnancy.

I was feeling really nervous and unsure about womb healing. After watching some of her videos on YouTube, I felt drawn to Vicki and her calming voice. I did look a lot on the internet to see what kind of healing therapy was available and just felt that Vicki had a different approach and I could trust her better. Womb healing really helped me with my emotions and the meditations are amazing. You can tell that Vicki has been through a lot of pain herself as she really understands how we feel and knows what to say. I learnt techniques that help me feel so much more confident about myself and I know my baby is now an angel. Thank you Vicki.

I had three miscarriages in total. It was devastating, I was so sad and depressed. I cried each time we got the happy news that our friends were pregnant and I was just not happy for them. It was just not fair. Each person I talked to wanted to help, but they only made it worse. They didn't know what I was going through. I liked the sound of Vicki, she had been through miscarriage herself and felt so much easier to talk to than anyone else I had tried. She really understood me and for the first time I tried deep healing. I experienced such profound shifts and was able to feel like my old self again. I got my confidence back and learnt some great techniques which still give me strength every day.

I met Vicki for two healing sessions and it was amazing. For a long time I have not been able to let my negative feelings go (I had 3 miscarriages in the last year). It was like a vicious circle. I encourage you to get in contact with Vicki. She can help you cope with those feelings that make your life so hard
