Do you think I miscarried?

I had a normal period, on Oct 14th it lasted the normal 5 to 6 days. It was not too light or heavy. (Sure sign I was not pregnant) Then 4 days later, I randomly got really ill, like I was about to start my period but more intensified. It hit me all of the sudden. My breast suddenly got sore, achy, and a headache. In addition, I noticed as well, when I went to the rest room and wiped I would see brownish discharge. Not too heavy but wore a panty liner. I was confused my breast randomly started hurting like when I was on my period a few days ago, therefore, I started thinking to myself either it was old blood from the period I just had or could I really be having a period again... Next day, brownish discharge still there did not feel as bad, still sore breast but mild lower back pain and cramping. Therefore, I decided to take pregnancy test...POSITIVE! Did not think it was even possible since I had a period. The brownish discharge stopped mid- day, I went to the doctor confirmed through a urine sample I was pregnant. I got my blood work back today and my levels is 2.2 progesterone and 582 HGC. I have to go back in Monday for more blood work. I still feel awful, achy, and cramps but no brownish discharge. I am so confused and would like some insight while I wait until Monday for more results. Did I miscarry during my period and still showing symptoms and positive test (and not all aborted so have to get a D&C), or am I miscarrying now, or do you think I am still pregnant and levels can still elevate? I have no idea how far a long I am since I had a period, but I am assuming VERY VERY early. Thanks for any advice

Thank you answers. My HCG levels on Friday were 582 and today they are 1572. They did an ultrasound and no signs of pregnancy. So they think it may be a tubal pregnancy BC the levels tripled but low progesteron. So now I have to get an ultrasound tmrw. Plus with me having a period I have no idea how far along I am. According to my period I should not even have conceived yet. So confused.

It's impossible to say. If you miscarried though, and your hCG levels are dropping, you should be feeling better, not worse. Also, with an early miscarriage there isn't much to retain. At 5 or 6 weeks pregnant the baby is tiny - think apple seed, sesame seed, small peanut, etc. The sac is small, and there isn't much placenta yet.

It's possible that what seemed like a period was heavy implantation bleeding. I've been pregnant six times (two miscarriages and four successful pregnancies). I always bled enough around the time of my period for it to be a period. In my case, it wasn't a normal period for me personally, but there are people who claim that their implantation bleeding was like their period.

It's possible to get pregnant with twins, miscarry one and still be pregnant with the other. Lots of weird first trimester bleeding is thought to be from that. I've seen people suggest that vanishing twin syndrome happens in a significant number of twin pregnancies, before you even know it's twins.

I don't know if that helps at all. Hopefully you get some answers today. I know the waiting is hard.
