  • did you pass the baby yet? When i had my misscarriage it lasted a day.. i started having contractions.. and i passed the baby about 12 hours later. i had to have a d&c because i was 16 weeks along... but after that it was pretty much just mental pain.. not physical. maybe you can call your doctor and ask if there is anything they can do??
    im so sorry mama.. it brings back such painful memories.. i know how you feel. i wish i could make it better!

  • How far along are you? I was only 4-5 weeks when I had my miscarriages. My first caused me pain for 3 days or so but nothing that made me need to take pain meds (I refuse to takes meds unless I absolutely need to). My second caused me no real pain really. I would call your doctor.
