    Default What to expect?

    Hi ladies, I'm expecting to MC soon as my HCG levels are dropping. I haven't had any MC symptoms yet, and I was just wondering what I should expect. Will the blood loss be significantly heavier than a period? How does the pain compare to usual period pain?

    TIA.

    Hi - I've been through this (twice) & for me my period came much like normal (maybe a tiny bit heavier & from memory lasted maybe one day extra) but I didn't experience any pain...other than the emotional hurt - I'm so sorry you're going through this, it's just awful. Hoping you next cycle is your next baby

    I'm so sorry you are going through this. I had a MC around the same stage as you earlier this year. Mine was just like my period but didn't really follow quite the same pattern of heavy and light days and lasted for 6days before lightening off. I didn't have much cramping / discomfort. From what I've read everyone is a bit different. Thinking of you xo

    Thanks for your responses ladies, I'm sorry you know the answers. I started bleeding on Sunday, and though I passed a massive clot (like the size of a cherry tomato), my bleeding has been medium at best.

    But today's question is regarding other symptoms. Has anyone had food poisoning like symptoms during a miscarriage? I haven't eaten anything different to DH in the last few days, and yet I've spent the afternoon with one end or the other over the toilet (sorry, TMI!) I don't have a temp, or other signs of an infection.

    Any help, would be appreciated, thanks!

    I'm so sorry for your loss. I lost a baby at a similar stage earlier this year. I had bleeding heavier than a period for the first two days. I lost the baby on the first day of bleeding and passed clots at that point, and had bad cramps. Nothing panadeine didn't sort out though. The bleeding slowed down after that and only lasted 5 days in total.

    I had a lot of nausea after my miscarriage. Lots more than I had when I was actually still pregnant.

    Have you had a scan to confirm that everything has passed?

    I'm seeing my FS on Tuesday, which would have been my 7.5w US.

    The scan helped me a lot because I knew then that everything was over. And that any sickness I was feeling was down to hormones rather than infection or retained tissue. My scan to confirm I lost the baby was also already booked as my dating scan.

    I hope you're going ok x

    Thanks everyone. I'm actually doing better than DH. He doesnt want to do another IVF cycle this year, whereas I want to be UTD ASAP. He can't face the prospect of getting a BFP only to lose it again.

    I just figure its better to miscarry if there is something wrong with the embryo. I know not everyone would agree with that, but its my way of coping I suppose. On the upside, the food poisoning or whatever has cleared without DH or DS getting sick, so that's a relief.

    Thanks again for the support ladies!
