I just read your post above. If the red has increased then it's started. Please have some iron if you haven't already. I felt very dizzy and certainly couldn't go to work or drive.
Hopefully it will be over for you in the next week or so

Good luck sunny girl.. Have panadol and nurufen plus and wheat pack on hand. Keep your appointment as if you do pass the sack you want confirmation that you have no retained products.
Also if you have a blighted ovum the sack can be normal size just nothing in it which is why your body still pumps out pregnancy hormones cause it doesn't know any different
Good luck if the pain gets too much go to ER otherwise get comfy hot showers lots of support and nurufen and panadol at the same time if it gets too much xx

We buried the sac in our garden, if that's something you might want to do

Sunny girl, I'm so so sorry that this has happened to you. My story is very similar to lilyloubelle, except that we were expecting twins and one foetus had grown but no heartbeat. I chose to have a d&c.
Miscarriage sucks, however it plays out. Give yourself time and space to grieve, talk about your baby and your loss, know that it will be months until you'll feel ok again and that that's ok xx

I suggested to DH we buy a nice angel to hang on our tree this year in honor of our loss.
I haven't had a lot of bleeding yet. Worst period pains but light watery bleeding only. Gosh I hope this doesn't drag out for weeks, it's like slow torture.
does exercise/yoga etc help speed things up at all?

Be prepared for it to drag out. I think you need a drop in hcg for the body to trigger a MC so it could take a while. Keep your scan appointment on Friday and see what's going on in there. Sometimes these things don't happen quickly but hopefully with a 5 week sac it would be like a normal bad period not "contractions" to get it out the cervix. Good luck thinking of you.

Hi sunnygirl, so sorry x
Just to let you know my mc started with a big bleed (it was then I went in for an u/s and they let me know the baby's heart had stopped, 8wks) then I had like a light period, I thought for sure I was in the middle of a mc. But no, the spotting dragged out for a week, then the next week I went in for bloods, my HCG had risen! Plus my morning sickness was worse, so kick me when I'm already down.
The drs advised I get a d&c and I went with that in the end. I was happy (if that's the right word) for a natural mc, but my body just didn't seem to be catching up with what had happened.
My advice, get a blood test to see if your HCG is going down.
