Was this a miscarriage?


My last period was on 15.11.05 and I am now over three weeks late. We are trying for a baby and found out when I am ovulating etc. Normally my periods are regular. I am having night sickness, sore breasts, mood swings, etc. Also on 14.12.05 I have a light brown stain with no cramping. But despite all this no positive tests, yet I feel pregnant!I went to the doctors and they said it is a missed miscarriage and told me to go home and wait to bleed. Is this normal and correct?


Dear Jade,

In order to label this a miscarriage, there must be some medical evidence that you were pregnant. There is no way the doctor could know that it is a miscarriage without either a positive blood pregnancy test or an ultrasound. That does not mean that you are necessarily pregnant, since you could simply have missed a period. You should ask your doctor for a blood pregnancy test to find out what is going on.
