Not all miscarriages are physically painful, but most people have cramping. The cramps are really strong for some people, and light for others (like a period or less). It’s also common to have vaginal bleeding and to pass large blood clots up to the size of a lemon.

Why are miscarriage cramps so painful?

If you miscarry naturally, even in the early weeks of pregnancy, you are likely to have period-like cramps that can be extremely painful. This is because the uterus is tightly squeezing to push its contents out, like it does in labour – and some women do experience contractions not unlike labour.

What causes bleeding in pregnancy at 13 weeks?

Light bleeding or spotting (which can be brown, pink, or red) during the second and third trimester isn’t usually cause for concern. It typically occurs as a result of interference with the cervix during sex or a vaginal exam. Pink mucus or brownish discharge may both occur during the second trimester.

Round ligament pain: Around week 13 of pregnancy, you may experience abdominal pain caused by the rapid expansion of the ligament that supports the uterus called the round ligament. When this particular structure stretches you may feel a sharp, stabbing pain or a dull ache in your lower abdomen.

How common is a miscarriage at 13 weeks?

The estimated figure is that miscarriage happens in around 1 in 4 recognised pregnancies, with 85% of those happening in the first trimester (weeks 1 to 12). A ‘late’ miscarriage, which is much less common, may occur between weeks 13 to 24 of pregnancy.

What do miscarriage cramps feel like?

Abdominal cramping

Cramping with a miscarriage is usually caused by your uterus contracting. Just like during your period, your uterus contracts to push contents out. Since your uterus is mostly a muscle, these contractions feel like muscle cramps (in other words, they hurt).

Can miscarriage pain be on one side?

Pain and cramping occur in the lower abdomen. They may occur on only one side, both sides, or in the middle. The pain can also go into the lower back, buttocks, and genitals. The woman may no longer have signs of pregnancy such as nausea or breast swelling/tenderness if she has experienced a miscarriage.
