I've been going through a miscarriage this week. It started on Sunday with spotting and by Monday night had progressed to heavy bleeding with blood clots and severe cramps. Now its Thursday and it hasn't lightened up, the cramps actually seem worse. I was almost 7 weeks along when this all happened. On Sunday the ultrasound showed a sac with no baby. And on Tuesday my hCG levels had dropped since Sunday. The doctor said it was blighted ovum. Anyways, I'm worried I might need a D&C since the bleeding seems to be lasting so long. How do I know what is normal and what to be concerned about? How long until I should call the doctor and ask for more testing to be sure everything is passing correctly?
