Dear t21, I am very sorry that you are going through this very uncomfortable feeling.

Can you be a little more specific as to where your pain is? Is it in your back and sides? or more like period cramp-like pains? Also, are you bleeding like a normal period? or have you seen blood clots?

According to the American Pregnancy Association (APA) these are some warning signs of a miscarriage:
* Mild to severe back pain (often worse than normal menstrual cramps)
* Weight loss
* White-pink mucus
* True contractions (very painful happening every 5-20 minutes)
* Brown or bright red bleeding with or without cramps (20-30% of all pregnancies can experience some bleeding in early pregnancy, with about 50% of those resulting in normal pregnancies)
* Tissue with clot like material passing from the vagina
* Sudden decrease in signs of pregnancy

You may or may not have all of these signs and symptoms. There are many things that can attribute to that second period in the month, but I urge you to please get yourself checked out by your doctor. IF in fact your body is trying miscarrying, you need medical attention.
Remember that even some bleeding in the beginning of pregnancy can result in a normal pregnancy.

Good Luck, please keep us updated-- for more information:
