Signs of a Miscarriage

Am I having a Miscarriage?

If you are pregnant and wondering if you could be having a miscarriage, you are not alone. Many women worry about having a miscarriage especially if they have experienced a previous loss, or if there is evidence that something is wrong. Perhaps you’re questioning whether your symptoms are normal or if they are signs of a miscarriage. Maybe you’re feeling concerned because your pregnancy is just feeling “off.” If so, your next question may be, “Am I having a miscarriage?”

Signs of a Miscarriage

There are several signs of miscarriage to be aware of. If you experience any or all of these symptoms, contact your health care provider or medical facility. Some signs of a miscarriage can include:

  • Brown or bright red bleeding
  • Light pink mucus
  • A sudden decrease in pregnancy signs
  • Passing clot like material
  • Back pain
  • Painful contractions

Chances of a Miscarriage

A miscarriage is a spontaneous loss that happens before the 20th week of pregnancy. An exact percentage of miscarriages is unknown because many occur in early pregnancy before the women even knows she is pregnant. It is estimated that 10-20% of pregnancies end in miscarriages usually occurring before the 13th week. However, that percentage could be higher because some women miscarry so early in pregnancy that they didn’t even know they were pregnant.

Don’t Go Through it Alone

If you think you are having a miscarriage, immediately contact your health care provider or medical facility. Don’t stay emotionally isolated in your worry. It can be comforting to be able to talk with a family member or friend or have them pray with you. It may be uncomfortable to start the conversation, but it will be worth it to have a network of emotional support around you.

As always, I am here to talk as well. You are loved, momma.

The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.

— Psalm 34:18
