See below: Symptoms of miscarriage (things you can feel/see) include abdominal/pelvic pain, vaginal bleeding, and perhaps a cessation of pregnancy symptoms (e.g. Reduced nausea, reduced breast swelling/tenderness). Signs of miscarriage (things your md can check) include abnormal blood tests(e.g. B-hcg), physical exam (e.g. Dilated cervix), and ultrasound findings (e.g.Abnormal growth/development). Good luck!

Cramps and bleeding: Some signs of a miscarriage include severe cramping and heavy vaginal bleeding. Some women pass clots and tissue. However, it's possible to have these and not miscarry. It's also possible to have a failed pregnancy but with none of these signs or symptoms.

None, cramps, bleed: If your doctor saw fetal heart tones one time and then did not with the follow-up ultrasound, then you have, unfortunately, miscarried. Cramping and vaginal bleeding are the most common signs of a miscarriage.
Dr. Daniel Steffy

Bleeding: Vaginal bleeding, suprapubic pain, low back pain.
Dr. Brian Struyk

Several: Painful cramping, vaginal bleeding, foul discharge, loss of fetal movement.

Depends: Bleeding and cramping are the most common signs. But still many women with those signs do not have a miscarriage. Sometimes even spotting can be a sign. Sometimes there are actually no signs at all. It can depend on how far along the pregnancy is.

Cramping/bleeding: The most common signs of a miscarriage are cramping and bleeding. 1 in 5 recognized pregnancies results in a miscarriage. Most miscarriages happen in the first trimester of pregnancy. A miscarriage can be confused with an ectopic pregnancy. If the cramping is predominantly on the left or right side of the lower abdomen, you should see a doctor to rule out an ectopic. Best wishes!

Cramping/bleeding: These are the usual ones but - caution - they are very non-specific. Iow if you have some cramping and bleeding it does not necessarily mean you are miscarrying; in fact, mild bleeding or spotting is extremely common in normal pregnancies. Best advice is see a doctor promptly if you're worried!
