Immovable object?: If there was a miscarriage in fact, the beta HCG blood pregnancy test should drop to less than one(1). If it is still elevated, have your md do another ultrasound to be sure that the uterus is empty and does not contain an "immovable object" of retained pregnancy. ...Read more

About 1%: A heart rate of 186 is a bit high but a single reading has little significance. Good you don't smoke. Take your prenatal vitamins. Avoid alcohol and drugs like cocaine. If you are a heavy coffee drinker you may consider easing up on caffeine a bit. Good luck. ...Read more

Not normally: The baby is enclosed in the womb in a sea of amniotic fluid. This protects the baby. If the mother had a serious complication - then perhaps vigorous activity could cause an negative outcome. ...Read more

I miscarried at 10 weeks 1 month ago. I bled for 1.5 weeks & have not had a period. The last 2 days I have had vaginal bleeding with bowel movements.

5 weeks: The minimum of a regular menstrual period after ending a pregnancy is about 5 weeks . Three weeks seems to be the earliest a woman ovulates after ending a pregnancy, plus 2 weeks for the "secretory" phase, the second half of the menstrual cycle.

Cycle after miscarry: After a miscarriage, the usual advice is to wait 3 months of cycling before trying again to make sure your body gets back to normal. This not unusual but I recommend that you review this with your doctor to make sure that all is well. You didn't describe the circumstances of your miscarriage so your dr would be able to make some sense out of this for you. ...Read more
