    Everyone is different.

    By the sounds of things you haven't finished misscarrying yet, when I had mine I had a lot of pain and cramps and bled lots, I also passed lots of clots.

    But as I said everyone is different, have you talked to your doctor about it ?

    I don't think there is anyone who can predict what is going to happen. Every miscarriage is different.

    For me we found out at the nt scan (13 wks) that the baby had passed at around 8.5 weeks. So my body had held onto it for 4.5 weeks with no signs of me miscarrying naturally.

    As you've had a bleed already I would think that perhaps your body will try to miscarry.

    I'm so sorry for your loss xx

    so sorry for your loss. sounds like your body is trying naturally but you will have to have a few internal ultrasounds to make sure there is nothing remaining which could cause infection or further problems.

    When I had mine I hadn't had a scan so I'm not sure how long it took from bubs passing to miscarry.

    I've also had a blighted ovum but I had a d&c for that one because my body wouldn't miscarry naturally.

    I'm so sorry for your loss xx

    big hugs. its a very sad time. I've recently been in the same situation as you, however I chose to have a D&C as I couldn't cope with the morning sickness that I still had even though bubs had passed.

    take care of yourself. xxxx
