How do I know if I'm having a miscarriage?

Generally, the most commonly recognized sign of miscarriage is bleeding, but remember that about 20-30% of women experience some spotting during pregnancy. Miscarriage bleeding is heavier and continues to get heavier with time, or might occur along with intense cramps.

A miscarriage can also happen without bleeding.

Other symptoms include:

  • A reduction in pregnancy symptoms
  • A decrease in the baby’s movements in the 2nd trimester 
  • Intense cramping

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, call your medical provider ASAP.
