Miscarriage - what to expect - Update

So I had my hcg tested again yesterday & my OB called with the results this morning.  Last Thursday it was 180, yesterday it was 193.  So I clearly am going to miscarry at some point.  It went up, but not nearly enough to indicate a viable pregnancy.

He said something about doing another blood test if I don't start bleeding but I missed how long to wait.

How long would you guess that it would take for me to actually miscarry?

He said to stop taking the progesterone supplement but not to throw it out.  He really wants my DH & I to have another baby & was suggesting I come in to talk to him about Clomid.  He said it helps with egg quality but also with supporting the corpus luteum (I think I have the term right).  Not sure what I think there, not a huge fan of Clomid or know if I really want to go through trying again.  But we won't decide that right now anyway.

Update - I started bleeding yesterday. So far, not too bad. It's only slightly heavier than an af. Mild cramping this morning, but Tylenol took care of it.

Is your question about how long it takes to miscarry? I didn't miscarry naturally. I had a D&C. There's another group for miscarriage though that you could ask. I know listening to their stories they ranged from a few days to a few weeks.

I miscarried naturally 5 times. They were all different. Once my levels started going down. Twice it only took a few days. The other times 3 to 4 weeks.

Going up is usually good, but they should be doubling every 48-72 hours right now. Going up only 13 in one week is not good.

 To answer your question idk, I went the D&C route because I knew I wouldn't be able to handle the waiting game.  I'm sending many prayers your way I'm so sorry to hear this but know your BFP is coming it's coming for all of us, take care & we are here for you

I was 11 weeks. I had a missed miscarriage. His heart stopped beating. My doctor felt it was too dangerous after 10 weeks to deliver naturally.
