Your very welcome. I know I didn't actually go through the loss of a baby in the end but in those 12 hours of waiting I was 100% sure I had lost it. I mourned. I cried. I stressed. I was very depressed. Eventually she will heal, but my mother was talking me through it the entire time via phone and she is a very Christian woman. She assured me that if I was indeed going through a miscarriage that is because god knew something was not going to go right with that baby. Whether It be I could not handle the pregnancy or the baby would not have been healthy. She will eventually heal. I know she is young and has plenty of life to live and years to get pregnant. Pray hard and support her in every way possible. Sending my love!

Ashton Thank you for your comment I am happy to hear that your baby is doing good

we had blood work taken last week and my daughters HCG level went from 457 to 237

so the doctor said they are exspecting it to be a miscarriage we went in this morning for more blood work and have another doctors appointment on tuesday this is a long painful and stressful

process she has read that this could happen if she miscarried a twin but I dont think that is the case for her mental state I wish that it was but I feel that she miscarried I will be glad to get this over with so she can try to get back to normal Thank you every one for your help and Ashton take it easy and enjoy your pregnancy and the birth of your beautiful baby.

I understand this is an old post but maybe someone will read it and it will be helpful. Since I was 7 weeks after my fiancé and I had sex I would spot, called the doctor they said it was normal just not to have rough sex anymore. Well, this continued until I was a day before 12 weeks. We had sex and it wasn't necessarily rough, just quick. After we finished he ran into the bathroom and told me there was blood on him. I jumped up worried and as soon as I stepped into the bathroom blood began to run down my leg. It was dark red blood, period like. I was dropping all over the bathroom floor. You see, I had been paranoid since day one that I was having a miscarriage. Although this is my first baby and pregnancy I had just seen miscarriage everywhere and thus was terrified. I sat on the toilet and heard something drop into the toilet. My fiancé began to cry. I asked him to step out of the bathroom and give me a minute to cope. I had heard that sometimes in miscarriages it's common to pass the baby entirely. This is what I thought had occurred. As I sat up off the toilet, I saw a huge blood clot in the bottom. I scooped it out and three it in the sink. Went through it to make sure I wasn't flushing my baby down the toilet. It was just a huge blood clot. Nothing more. I jumped in the shower and cried for about 15 minutes because I knew know that I was having a miscarriage. My fiancé then told me we had to go the ER. We went to the ER where I cried as we sat in the waiting room for 7 hours only to get called back to the room and wait another 5 hours. Finally the doctor came in after my ultrasound (where the tech was silent and wouldn't answer any of my questions, and BTW had the speaker turned off do I heard no heartbeat) and said that the baby was fine! I was shocked. And relieved, we both cried and went home. Of course my doctor wanted to see me as soon as possible do we went there and they proceeded to give me another ultrasound where I saw my healthy little baby dancing around in my tummy with a heartbeat loud as ever. So don't always think the worst has happened. Pregnancy is a tricky thing and will drive you mad if you let it. I'm 15 weeks now :) good luck to all!!

It certainly sounds like a miscarriage, and there really isn't anything the doctors can do. Encourage her to rest, drink plenty of fluids, and give her lots of love and comfort. Watch for heavier blood loss, because this can be a problem, and if it appears she is losing too much blood, get her to the ER, but otherwise, being home is probably a big comfort for her under the circumstances.

With that much bleeding I would say it's a miscarriage. It wouldn't do any good to be optimistic and then tell her she's lost the baby. At 4 weeks she's only just found out she's pregnant as she would have only just missed her period. Most women that far along don't even know yet.
