I don't know what they mean... *warning: miscarriage*

I had a miscarriage. I am taking the medicine to help it pass since it was not passing on its own. Doc said if I soak a pad in an hour to go to the ER. But what is soaked? Does that mean dripping with blood? Or just full? I had 2 pads, 2 seperate hours that were full. There were still some bare spots (like at the front and back). Help?

    They mean to the point where it is full, where you are bleeding through the pad.

    Means needing to be changed or its going to leak.


    Are you passing big clots? Are you getting dizzy.

    If you need to change a super absorbent pad twice an hour, because it cannot hold anymore....go to the er or call your dr.

    If you look at the underside of the pad when you remove it can you see the blood sitting against the plastic surface? If so,then yes you are. There is plastic there to prevent it form getting on your clothes but that's what they mean.

    Its not to that point (change or leak). But to the point where I feel like I have to change it because it feels gross. Big clots (squishy golf ball sized and smaller, one larger). No dizziness. Cramps but they said that was normal. The nurse said not to worry about the clots and the size/amount sounds normal.

    See now I always thought bleeding through was full on bleeding through and leaking. I need to check this pad (3rd hour) and see. Then I may need to find a babysitter for my son.

    Not 2 pads in one hour. One pad per hour for 2 hours. I am in the third hour right now. Sorry. I tried to word it better then how I worded it to the nurse. I failed.
