What are the signs of having a miscarriage?
Congratulations on your pregnancy
! I think every woman, especially in her first trimester, worries about possible miscarriage, because if it were going to occur, that is the most likely time. Miscarriage occurs far less often than people commonly think; approximately 10 percent to 15 percent of all pregnancies end in a miscarriage, and when it does occur it is usually the result of an abnormality with the developing fetus.
The common signs of a miscarriage are as follows:
- Bleeding. The bleeding can be bloody staining that continues regularly for three days or more; or it can be as heavy as a menstrual period; or it could be accompanied by the passing of clots.
- Cramps. The cramping would be similar to that of a menstrual period and experienced in the center of your lower abdomen.
- Severe pain. This can occur even if not accompanied by bleeding.
If you have any of these symptoms, you need to call your health care provider at once. But in view of the fact that most likely they will not occur, relax and enjoy your pregnancy
