  • I'm sorry for your loss. Please consider going to the doctor for a blood test to make sure your HCG levels have dropped to zero. Bleeding is probably normal, but elevated HCG levels could indicate that you are harboring materials from your pregnancy in your uterus, which can be dangerous. Good luck.

  • I'm so sorry. I know you went to the ER, but you should follow up with a doctor.

  • I agree with the other ladies that you should probably follow up with your doc. Some bleeding is normal after a miscarriage, but I am more concerned with the cramping.

  • I have had two miscarriages, at a much earlier time than you. I would guess the cramping is from your uterus contracting back down to regular size. Follow up with your regular doctor and let them know what is happening, but I would guess if you aren't bleeding excessively, it is probably your body returning to "normal". I am so sorry for your loss.
