Sorry if TMI, but how long did you bleed for?

I started MC last Thursday. Started as brown spotting, was on and off and turned dark red on Sunday. on Tuesday it turned heavy and bright red and hasn't stopped. It's not excessive - like a heavy period but constant. I'm not having to change towels any more frequently.

I am thoroughly fed up of seeing it now. I know everyone is different, but how much longer should I expect this to go on for? I just want it to be over so we can start trying again.

Nearly 2 weeks for me when I miscarried at 6 weeks. It is horrible. Be very kind to yourself flowers

I had extreme blood loss on the day that I MC (was hospitalised), then period type bleeding for around 7-8 days, and then spotting on and off for a further week. I remember feeling like it was never going to end. I was gutted that I missed first ovulation after MC, but looking back I don't think my body was ready for it anyway.
Take each day as it comes and look after yourself flowers xxx

It's been a week now since it started, so hopefully it won't last much longer.

Am not dealing with this all at all well today. It's been a very bad week, everything that could have gone wrong, has. Plus I've come out with a bad cold this morning which is just a lovely cherry on top.

Feeling very wobbly today at work. I think I'm going to see if I can take tomorrow off, but I only came back yesterday. I thought I was ready to come back.

I've had three, 2 natural, one ERPC and bled for two weeks for all of them.

Sorry to hear that you're not doing too well. It's still early days and you've been through a lot physically and emotionally. If you feel that you need the time off work then do it. Listen to your body and take the time that you need.
You'll have good days and bad days. I remember 2 days after my MC I was sat up in bed doing work on my laptop, I felt as fine as is possible and I was really shocked at how well I was handling it all. Then the very next day all I did was cry. I couldn't get out of bed and I was either sad or angry, with no in-between. It definitely takes time, so don't feel bad about taking time off work or having a bad week, it will happen, but it does get easier. xx

How many weeks were you OP? So sorry for your loss. I had pink and red spotting today and had a scan and a blood test. Doc says it's a miscarriage. Not started proper bleeding yet. I was 5 weeks today. So sad.

I left early and they told me not to go in tomorrow. We go on holiday on Saturday which is a blessing and a curse - good to get away and relax (as much as you can with a nearly 4 year old!!) But no swimming sad

I was 7 weeks to the day (or so I thought). Went for a scan at epu, saw an empty black "bubble" in my womb. Nurse tried to convince me my dates were wrong and it was just too early, but I knew.

I'm so sorry mama. It really does suck. I hope you feel better soon. And sorry again for your loss 💐💐💐

I am so sorry for your loss,

I bled for 1 week like a normal period with my first MC and then over a month with my second one in December last year. It was truly awful and I'm sorry you are going through this sad
