I had two miscarriages in 2007. The first one I bled for six weeks, on and off. It was really really awful and ended up having to have a DNC. I was at 11 1/2 weeks though and had a really rough time (emotionally and physically). My second one I was only 6 weeks along and like you I bled, stopped and then restarted. Your body goes through a lot of changes and healing. If you continue to bleed though after this, call your doctor immediately (I didn't) and get an ultrasound to make sure that your body is done. It is really important if you are planning to ttc again any time soon. A DNC can actually make you more fertile because you are getting rid of tissue in the uterus. Hopefully that was not tmi. If you don't have a follow-up appointment set for the near future, call Monday and make one. You won't regret it.
