Could the spotting with mild cramps be possible miscarriage?

Hi, I recently fell pregnant - 5 weeks. I went for an internal scan as I was spotting brown discharge and mild cramps. The sac was lower in the womb than expected and I was told this was due to a possible miscarriage. I now have to wait 2 weeks for another scan to see if there has been any change. I have since the scan, spotted red clots and the brown stuff seems to be getting worse but have no pains. Do you think I am definitely going to loose my baby?

Hi, I had a positive pregnancy test about 2 weeks ago. I would be 8 weeks since my last period today. Last week I experienced dark red blood almost everything I urinated and had bowel movements. Now it s been extremely dark brown spotting and almost black clots. I haven t checked to see if I was still pregnant. I kinda figured I lost the pregnancy. Between cramps with these symptoms, although the cramps were never excruciating. Can it be dangerous if I don t go to a doctor?? With all this almost black blood and clots??

Hi Dr Samuel, I am 40 year old and having first pregnancy(natural). The first day of my last menstrual period was 31st Oct 2013. I went for my first ultrasound scan on 17th Dec 2013, it supposed to be 6 weeks 4 days but there was no fetal pole found except a sac/water bag. 2nd ultra sound was done yesterday 26th Dec 2013. Fetus is very small compared to what doctor expected to see as a 8 weeks fetus and worst thing is there was no heart beat detected. Doctor commented i will have miscarrige these few weeks. He scheduled me to go for 3rd ultrascan and to do a D&C if result turns negative next week. I guessed my fetus size is about 6 weeks. Would it be possible that my ovalution date was delayed and caused the fetus much smaller to the weeks it supposed to be? I have no bleeding or cramping till date, should I wait for another month to confirm the fetus is abnormal before doing a D&C? The doctor has commented 99% of my pregnancy is unhealthy as I am 40. Do I need to go for blood test to check my HCG level before any decision making? I would be most grateful for you advices. Many thanks & kind regards, Cynthia

My Wife had a miscarriage in 1.5 Months and was advised to take Foilc Acid (5 Mg) and Vitamin-C (500 Mg). She developed Bloating and loose Motion (It was normal semi- solid) for 2-3 weeks and then dry cough came in. We decided to approach the doctor... We had been to the Doctor and were advised: 1) Aloxil ( 3 times a day). 2) Exylin (2 times a day. Cough Syrup) 3) Fixit (150 mg; 2 times a day) She developed cold and was advised after 3 days starting the above course 1) Advil ( 3 times a day). It has been more than a week now after stopping the Medications. The loose motion was not there for 2 days, returned for a day, was absent for 3 days and was back yesterday. Please advise...

I am 50 years old. I started my period when I was 12. I have always had regular periods 4-5 days in length. My first pregnancy ended in miscarriage at 37. 10 weeks. My second pregnancy by IVF resulted in twins at 40. Last doctor visit said I was not entering menopause as of yet. However, I have now been having my period for almost 3weeks. I have a call into my doctor and am waiting to hear back. What should the next steps be? I tend to under react about things like this and am not a complainer but obviously I am concerned as I am contacting a website for an answer before my doctor calls me back. Today was her day off. Lucky me
