Bleeding: Some spotting is common during implantation. However, this spotting is minimal and many pregnancies occur with spotting and almost half of those result in normal pregnancy. Implantation bleeding can occur along with cramps. Nevertheless the cervix is closed. However, when cramping and bleeding occurs with the cervix open then a miscarriage can take place. You must be careful and should seek medical help on an emergency basis if you have these types of bleeding as that can indicate that you are having an early miscarriage.
- - Bright red or brown bleeding that occurs with or without cramping
- - Heavy bleeding that occurs suddenly and worsens with time
- - Bleeding that contains tissue or clots
Cramping: With implantation some mild cramping is quite normal and in most cases it continues during pregnancy as it tries to accommodate a growing fetus. Normal cramping is transitory and mild. However, if it becomes severe then you must call your doctor immediately. If you experience the following then it can indicate that you are having or have had an early miscarriage.
- - Severe cramps that are worse than menstrual cramps
- - Pain is at the back and continues for more than few moments

Mucus or Fluid: Fluid coming out of your vagina can be a serious cause for concern. If the fluid is white-pink in color then it may be placental tissue. It is recommended that you conserve that tissue in a clean air-tight pot and seek medical help immediately. A sudden gush of mucus or fluid can indicate a miscarriage. So, visit your doctor right away.
