period or a sign of miscarraige ?

I have been having some problems lately, but I am really lost. I have not taken a pregnancy test prior to this, therefore I do not know if I was pregnant. I started my cycle and it ended in two 3 days which was not normal. About 5 days later I was at a restaurant and I had to run to the rest room very fast because I felt nausea and threw up. I went home about 15 minutes later and I noticed that I had light, but very red blood in my panties. I went to bed, but only to wake up bleeding very bad. Now it has been 8 days and I am still bleeding and I would like to know what could this possibly be? This was not the normal blood, because it was very heavy and extremely red. It has slowed down a lot, but it is still very red. I also went to walk today and my abdomen was cramping so bad, until the point that my back and love ab was hurting and I could not even walk home fast enough. I am so lost and would be very sad if it were a miscarraige, but again very relieved.

It may be best to go to the gynecologist. It does sound like you may be miscarrying. The doctor can take a look and tell you.
