  • First off I am soooooo sorry ! I have miscarried 3 times all before 8 weeks. 2 times bleeding lasted about a normal period for me so about a week. My 2nd miscarriage I didn't ever naturally miscarry so I had to have a D&C and I bled for a few days then had a hemorrage about a month later and bled for about a month. Even had to go through a chemo shot because of it.

  • It's very confusing. I don't really know how to feel and keep going from sad, to mad, to nothing. Everything was perfect as it was, or at least I thought it was. Now I don't even know how things are.

  • It's hard physically and emotionally you can phyically be ready to TTC again within 3 months (3 cycles) emotionally it can take a long time since your emotions can go all over the place one minute to the next.
    If you ever need to talk to someone just PM I have been thier before I know how it feels.

  • OP- Im sorry for your loss. I just want you to know there are lots of moms on here who have gone through the same thing and are really good support when you need it. I myself went in 2 weeks ago for my 12 week check-up just to find out my baby had passed away at 8 weeks and i was still carrying it. I took medications for 4 days trying to miscarry on my own but my body wouldn't so i had to have a D&C that i just had done on Wednsday. I am still very emotional as well and if you want someone to talk to you can PM me anytime.

    As for your question, its been 4 days since i had my D&C done and am still bleeding. Everyone is different. Good luck and just try and keep your head up.

  • I am so sorry for your loss ,I know it's difficult.   Give yourself time to mourn and talk to hubby or anyone.  I was also very angry, sad, confused, but I thank God he comforted me. 

    I bled for 2 weeks before I miscarried and another week after.  My doctor prescribed me a medication to contract the uterus and stop the bleeding.  I miscarried Nov of last year and am now 18 weeks pregnant again.  I waited the full three cycles and was mentally and physically ready to conceive again.  Give yourself all the time you need with time it will get better.  hugs

  • Thank you ladies, I'm sorry that this has to happen to any of us. I think that you guys are right about waiting three months because now I go from not wanting another, to picking what month would be good to have a baby, to waiting years.

    I'm sure I'll be back to my old self within a few months.

  • I'm so sorry sweetie. I had a blighted ovum with my 2nd m/c as well. I know it's tough. I bled for about 5-6 days...just like a heavy period. I decided not to have a d&c and just passed everything naturally.
