  • Didn't they tell you that at the Dr.'s or the hospital? I can't believe they wouldn't talk about what the expectations are on that. I am sorry for your loss. I hope someone comes along that has the answer for you... but if not, I would certainly call that Dr. You can leave a message with the answering service and someone will call you back...

  • So Sorry for the loss of your pregnancy and on the length of time till you miscarry there honestly isn't a set time could be hours or weeks(I know that doesn't help you much) I know there is a pill you can take that speeds up the process(sorry can't remember what it was called)

  • As long as your body takes..everyone is different. I couldn't miscarry naturally, so I had to have a D&C. I'm so sorry for your loss.

  • I'm sorry you are dealing with this, I have been there and it's miserable. :( There is really no standard time for a miscarriage. When I miscarried, the doctor said the baby had likely been dead for several weeks, but my body hadn't acknowledged it yet. It was still another several days after that appointment that my body finally started the process.

  • Once you start bleeding you could bleed for up to two weeks. My mom found out her baby had no heartbeat at the beginning of her 5th month but didnt start bleeding until midway through her 6th month. I'm pretty sure it is different for everyone.

    I'm sorry for you loss. My thoughts are with you.

  • I am so sorry, When I had my miscarriage I was told that the baby had died at about 8 weeks and I should have been 11 weeks along. They also told me that it could happen any day or could take a few weeks. They suggested that I have a d&c, which I had the next day.
