How do I know when I have passed the foetal sac during miscarriage?

Sorry if it is tmi, but many people mention the sac and when the baby passed etc but all I know is that I had many days of ridiculously heavy bleeding and passed numerous large clots (at least one was literally a large handful) and many smaller. They all looked like red clots. I was 9 and half weeks and still bleeding (more like period) now which is 3 weeks later.
I am curious about the sac thing as I feel a little bit stupid for not knowing which bit was our baby :-(
Big love and hugs to anyone out there who has or is having mc.

Hi ladies,
Firstly I'm so sorry you're experiencing a miscarriage - I'm currently going through a medical one and it's a pretty miserable experience (I feel slightly in shock still - the bad news, then the hideous pain of the meds that made me feel unbelievably ill and now just feeling v sad). I think I've just passed the yolk sac - it'll literally slipped out after waiting a couple of days for the bleeding to start (I'm still only bleeding lightly) - when it passed it felt solid and round. I couldn't really see it in the toilet bowl and have just flushed it away but am now sitting here wishing I hadn't and that I'd scooped it out and found it somewhere nice to be buried. Wishing you all lots of support from your loved ones and a speedy recovery. As my Mum has said, hopefully there's another baby waiting in the wings for us all. X

Hi there I was wondering if anyone could help me because I'm finding nothing online and the hospital don't tend to be so organized and do not explain things very well. On the 22nd of October me and my partner went for what would have been our 12 week ultrascan to find out that the sac was present but the baby had "dissolved" which really confuses me. When we went for the 8 week scan we saw the babies small flickering heartbeat which was adorable. I've had scans for the past month and I've had on and off bleeding which hasn't been heavy at all. And sometimes it's just been brown discharge? The bleeding seems to be stopping more and more each day but I've had some small red blood clots. I went hospital last Thursday and they did another internal scan which proved the sac was Still present and it has shrunk in size. I've been bleeding since the 4th of November and in wondering If I should just wait it out or to have the surgery? Does it usually take this long to pass sac. And does the sac come out in clots? I know I'm describing this in a lot of detail but I'm truly struggling to find someone who has had the same situation as me. My next doctor appointment isn't till the 15th of December and I'm uncertain as to what to do. If you could share some experiences with me that would be great thank you in advance xxx

Hi karanger, I went for scan two weeks ago, said fetus measures 6 weeks no heartbeat, thought I was a lot further than that. Went back Monday of this week and confirmed missed miscarriage. Wanted to give it a week to see if I could miscarry naturally. Iv had cramping and v slight brown/pink/red spotting when wiping this past few weeks. This week tho the cramping was more like contractions than period pains but still just slight spotting. I phoned wed and asked for surgical management as to be honest, the idea of more.pain and heavy blood loss frightened me. I had op this morning. I'm glad I did as they said I was 12 weeks pregnant but baby died at 6 weeks. Can't believe it happened that ling ago without much symptoms. I feel it wad the right option for me. Was in at 7.45 had op showered and home before 12. And the staff at epu were amazingly kind and understanding. I hope I can heal physically now but know it will take a hell of a lot longer to get over my loss. Hope u dint have to suffer much longer xx

I'm going through a miscarriage at the moment, I should be 11 weeks pregnant but stopped growing at 6 weeks. Had brown spotting for 3 days then last night started with cramps, which have continued today then started bleeding bright red this morning. Have had a couple of clots and now bleeding has really slowed down in the last couple of hours, cramping pretty much stopped too. I'm not sure if the baby has passed and that's the main bit over with now?
Struggling to deal with it all, currently sat at home on my own my husband didn't want to cancel plans he had with friends so has gone out. Feel very alone, hoping after a good sleep things will feel better tomorrow. Sorry for sounding down. Did anyone else struggle to deal with things? X
