What does an early miscarriage look like?
Many early miscarriages simply look like heavy menstrual periods, with maybe a few tiny blood clots in the discharge.
But sometimes in a later first-trimester miscarriage, there may not be recognizable tissue if the pregnancy began to deteriorate before the onset of the miscarriage bleeding.

Signs and Symptoms of a Miscarriage
Signs of a miscarriage can include spotting or vaginal bleeding similar to a menstrual period. The bleeding will often have more clots than a regular period, appearing as tiny lumps in the vaginal discharge. Heavier bleeding is another matter, particularly if accompanied by cramping.
What are the symptoms of miscarriage at 2 weeks?
The most common symptoms of early miscarriage are cramping and bleeding.
Other symptoms of miscarriage
- cramping in your abdomen or lower back (This could start out like period cramps, but the pain typically worsens over time.)
- passing fluids, larger-than-normal blood clots, or tissue from your vagina.
How do you tell if you are having an early miscarriage?
Some women do not experience any symptoms of miscarriage at all; however, possible miscarriage signs besides bleeding include:
- Mild to severe cramps.
- Pain in your back or abdomen.
- Loss of pregnancy symptoms, such as nausea or vomiting.
- White-pink mucus.
- Passing tissue or clot-like material.
