Miscarraige or not ? - was only bleeding for 36 hours!

Should be six weeks today. Started light bleeding on Sat morning and this stop started until the evening when I had about 4 hours of heavy period like bleeding and 2 clots slid into the toilet and few hours apart. Then next morning the bleeding was like a normal period and by the evening had pretty much stopped. I now just have a pick staining when I wipe. I did not really have any pain just very slight cramping and I still have that now even though the bleeding has stopped. My boobs do not hurt anymore and I do not feel sick any more, but there is still a strange feeling in my tummy.

I just assumed I was losing it and I would bleed for a while, but am shocked that the bleeding has stopped so quickly. I have a scan tommorrow but would like to be forewarned.

Was that a miscarraige? Has it finnished? Could it not of cleared properly? Could there still be a baby? etc. anyone any ideas?

I know I should wait untill tomorrow, but I can not think of anything else and need to know should I have hope or should I be worried that I have not cleared properly.

Hi, sorry to hear about this. I think it could go either way and only the scan will tell you for sure. I have had 4 miscarriages but my most recent was like that - bleeding over a short period becoming much heavier and then easing off. Sometimes it can start up again later. I have never really had any pain either. Losing symptoms is not a good sign either.

But to be more positive, I know some people have had heavy bleeding and still gone on to have a successful pregnancy so there is still hope. Good luck tomorrow and I do really hope it turns out well for you.

Sorry to hear that - it is a terrible thing to have to experience. Be good to yourself.
