Brief Answer: Hello Detailed Answer: If the cramping is moderate and quiet consistent then it would be good idea to consider visit to ER. Dark clot might be from previous bleeding but cramping worries me. Doctor might want you to get a repeat ultrasound done. Hope this helps. Please ask if there are doubts. Regards

The moderate cramping was for approx. an hour last night after the "gush" bleeding has slowed down to just large clots. No more cramping this AM just the clots. Still think I should go to ER? Thank you so much!
