I've been cramping for a few days but nothing major. Then yesterday I started spotting which I thought was fine because it happened with my first. As the day went on, my cramping got worse (but not extremely painful) and my bleeding got heavier, like a period. I started having some small blood clots and this morning I'm still bleeding and more clots. My cramping went away last night but started back up a couple hours ago and now it's starting to get painful. I called my doctor today and she had me come in for blood work but I won't know until tomorrow. My question is should I go to the ER? I'm pretty sure I'm losing our baby and I know there's nothing they can do about it. I have a one year old and don't want to put him through all that waiting. I talked to a family friend that has had a miscarriage and she said he passed out from it. I'm scared that when my husband goes to work something could happen. What do you ladies think? TIA...

Ok, so I did go in only because the pain gto worse and it was only on my left side. I went in and my blood pressure was a little high for comfort and I was running a fever. They did blood work and an ultrasound. Our little baby has passed and I have already released pretty much everything... :(

When I miscarried, I didn't go and I bled for so long that I became anemic. You should go to put your mind at ease and you may be wrong. Good luck!

I think you should go if for no other reason than to get an answer. Is there anyone that would be willing to come stay with your son while you go?
