  • If you've been bleeding for a few days, the embryo has probably already passed. You will continue to bleed for a while...sometimes weeks for some people. For me, I bled for about 2 weeks. I'm sorry. Hugs to you.

  • Check with your doctor. It is possible that you should be seen just to make sure all is well in your uterus.

  • Don't try to distinguish the embryo from other tissue. I spent a week looking in the toilet after each time I "went', and wondered, "is that my precious baby?" Am I flushing my baby's body? It was horrible. Don't do that to yourself. Don't look. It did nothing to help my grieving, and sent me into a depression that was very hard to get out of. I am so sorry you are going through this. It's a horrible thing to go through, and I hope you'll be strong. I think I bled for about a week. I remember the cramping was severe. Use a heating pad if you cramp; it seemed to help a little.

  • During all 3 of my miscarriages I passed a sac that was bigger than all of the other clots I passed. The baby is in that sac. I cramped hard and passed clots for about 3 hours. After the sac and tissue had passed I bled for 4-5 days like a light to medium period.
