Hi, I should be 6 weeks today but have had on off bleeding since last Wednesday. Had hcg of 617 on Monday and 440 yesterday. I'm not sure if I should expect more bleeding or not? Not sure if I should be out and about or not? I've had a mmc before so no bleeding in run up and had erpc so not sure what to expect. Thanks

So sorry floweroct have you been to EPU? Had a scan?
I had m/c at 6/7 weeks, there was more bleeding than a period, lots of clots and it was clear when I passed the pregnancy sac. I would not have wanted to be away from home when the bleeding was heavy.

Thanks, I've been to my fertility clinic as I had iui to get pregnant. They haven't done a scan as I started bleeding at 5 weeks so they said at that point a scan wouldn't pick anything up. Guess its just a waiting game so will stay close to home.

I agree with chicken, there is likely to be more bleeding and also lots of tissue to come. I wouldn't venture too far from home if I were you. So sorry you're going through this. It might be worth once the bleeding stops to ask your clinic if they will do a scan just to check that the mc is complete.

I've had 2 miscarage one at 7 wks one at almost 6 wks, there is more bleeding than a heavy period and just like noitsachickhen said it was clear when the baby passed and I don't think I could have coped if I wasn't at home. sending you ( hugs )
