These are symptoms of a possible miscarriage, derived from many sources throughout the internet.

  • Mild to severe back pain
  • Abdominal cramping, much more intense than menstrual cramping
  • Discolored, pink cervical mucus
  • Drop in pregnancy symptoms (this can be difficult to assess in early pregnancy)
  • Bleeding: brown or red (up to 30% of pregnancies may have some bleeding, with about half of those going on to have full term deliveries
  • Any sized tissue or clots passing from the vagina
  • Remember A+B+C = abdominal pain, bleeding, cramping.  These three together are signs of a possible miscarriage.

If you are experiencing any of these, please contact your healthcare professional immediately.   They can assure you of what is happening in your pregnancy.
