Bleeding but no clots?

Hi Ladies. I meant to be 4 w6d pregnant and started spotting on boxing day at 4w3d mainly pinkish smears of blood when wiping. On the 27th i had 1 occasion when i went to the loo and had a slightly thick amount of period like blood flow, and have since had a fair amount of more watery bright red blood mostly when going to the toilet and not much at all in my pantyliner. Went to the dr on 27th after this happened and she just told me i was having a miscarriage, but no tests or examinations. But im a little confused as i had a miscarriage 3 months ago and it was excruciatingly painful and VERY HEAVY, passing lots of clots etc. Granted i was a few weeks further on, but i would have expected to pass something before the bleeding started to reduce (which it has started to do now)?
I have scrolled the internet and all the medical websites talk about is spotting, which is natural OR heavy bleeding and clots which is likely miscarriage! Nothing on moderate watery bleeding without any clots and only mild cramps?? Anyone got any suggestions what i should do? If i take a pg test now will it be accurate? I know im too early for a scan but i dont know whether i have lost my baby or not and its a really awful limbo to be in... plus if i have lost it i need a very stiff drink...

Can you ring your local EPU? They may not be able to see much on a scan but will normally have a look and also check if your hcg levels are rising or falling. My second miscarriage was at 5 weeks and I didn't pass any clots, it was like a fairly heavy period. It was very different to the ones I had at 9/10 weeks.

Thank you, i decided to take a preganacy test this monring and it confirmed i was no longer pregnant. Ive come to realise it was what they call a chemical pregnacy (?) And so i guess what i experianced was normal, as it was for you too. Ive actually got heavier again this past 2 days, but still no clots. I am so scared to fall pregnant again, i cant keep going through these miscarriages it is tearing me apart :'(

So sorry you are going through this it is so difficult. Hope you have some support and take the time you need to process it all. I am also asking myself how many times I can go through this, I think that's only natural xx
