Miscarriage.. *If you have had one*

I believe I am having a miscarriage. I am almost 100% positive. I have gone for blood-work yesterday and will go again tomorrow to make sure my levels are going down as I suspect they are. I started bleeding heavily with cramps on Saturday. I was happy last night when the bleeding had almost ceased. Now today I woke up with cramps and bleeding all over again.. They said my mc may have been cause by a possible infection in my uterus. I am wondering how long the bleeding has lasted with other women. I just want this all to be over and done with. I guess I should mention that I was only 4 weeks into my pregnancy.. Actually really only 2.5 weeks from when I had ovulated and conceived..

  • With my first miscarriage I bled for 2 wks. With my 2nd miscarriage I only bleed for 7 days but I also went into labor with this one so I had alot of bleeding that day and actually pushed the baby out. Every MC is different so there really isn't a direct answer. Sorry.

  • when i had my miscarrage, i was 6-7 weeks pg., i cramped for a few days, then the night before i bled, i cramped so badly that i pulled some muscles in my back. My doctor told me to take 4 motrin every 4 hours to care for the pulled muscle that lasted for two weeks after the mc was finally done.

    You're in my thoughts, it's a horrible thing for women to go through. Get some rest, plenty of pain relievers, and fluids will help with the cramping. I'm so sorry for you.

  • I was 8weeks and the baby had stopped growing at 5. I had a D&C. I am so sorry you are going thru this. PM me anytime.

  • I had a miscarriage at 6w and basically it was like a really heavy, crampy period. I bled for about 5 days. I also had one at 12w, but I needed a d&c since I was hemmoraging, so I bled less after the d&c, just a couple days. I`m very sorry for your loss.

  • Thank you for all of the answers. I am thinking that I may be actually just be mooning now. Even if not it makes me feel better to just think of it as that.. There has been no tissue since early yesterday.. (tmi sorry) I have another apt with my midwife in two weeks, so I will see what she has to say then if I am still bleeding I suppose. Thanks again. My heart goes out to each of you women who have had to experiance this.. <3
