I'm at home, having natural mc after. I had a mmc, scan just showed an empty sac. This morning i had definite contractions for about two hours, then a pop and gush of fluid which i guess was the sac coming out. Now I'm bleeding a lot more heavily, having to change pads every 15 mins or so. Is this normal? I feel tired, bit wobbly, but not faint. I cant remember post-delivery bleeding with DD, so not sure how to gauge whether I'm ok or not.
I'm sorry to hear of your mc philbee, I've had one natural MC and 2 ERPCs. The bleeding in the natural one was quite extensive, free-flowing and painful while the contractions happened but that eased quickly after expelling the sac. My paperwork says soaking through 1 pad in less than an hour means you should go in to A&E or the EPAU for assessment. Call NHS direct now please - you may be haemorraging, and might need help to stop the bleeding.
Thanks. I called an ambulance and went to a&e. Not much in the way of examination, but the bleeding eased a lot while we were there and is more like a normal period now. They have sent us home and said to go to EPAU tomorrow morning for a scan to see where we are. Thanks for the advice - I would have dithered longer otherwise.
