so sorry you're going through this. Did you have a natural miscarriage? Or have an erpc?

I miscarried naturally at 6 weeks (although i thought I was 9) and bled for 5 weeks, it was much lighter towards the end though.

Were you offered a repeat scan to make sure you have passed everything? I was scanned weekly and hcg levels taken every two days until I got a negative pg test.

Sorry to hear this. You need to seek proper medical advice, GP as first option. Lots of things can be 'normal' but as you are not sure this needs to be checked.

thanks for your replys,
natural m/c i started light bleeding an phoned doc who said if it gets heavy and didn't stop i should assume it is a miscarriage, it got heavy so i i assumed miscarriage, but expected it to stop by now! i just hate getting the doctor involved because they are so cold and usually make me feel stupid for asking questions or being concerned! the weird thing is also that ive had no pain until the last couple of days ive been having period like cramps? i dont understand why now!? confused! mab u r rite i should call my doc 2morow!

you could calk your early pregnancy unit, they are likely to be much more understanding and give you the correct monitoring. Please call them.
