I'm alright. The bleeding is still going as well as the cramping, but I think I passed everything this morning. Surprisingly I feel good. I'm not overly upset (any more) and I'm really looking to the bright side of things. Now I can work on losing some more weight and spending more 1X1 time with DS. I guess I just feel like if I dwell on the bad I'm only hurting myself and my family. I'm still having sad moments and hormonal changes like crazy which I expected, but I'm doing ok. I'm looking forward to my vacation in June and to TTC some day in the future

Well yes. I suppose there'll be fluctuations in your feelings about it over time. s and more s

Sarah I'm so sorry to hear it, but I'm glad that you're doing okay.

How's everyone doing, symptom wise? I've got some mild cramping which I'm sure is just my Belly Bean digging in further. I'm also gassy : and constipated. Blech. : DD is still nursing and sometimes when she latches on, it feels like her mouth is full of glass. But, for the most part, we're still doing okay with the nursing. I have no plans to wean her yet, and am not opposed to tandem nursing if that's what ends up working for us.

There was a park around there too that was so peaceful but I don't know the name. I was there the day the Queen came a few years ago but didn't see her. Interestingly she came to Richmond, VA last a few days ago, where I now live, but I didn't see her then either. Anyway, I just had to say I think you live in HEAVEN. I am sure the tourists get to be a pain but it is still heaven to me.
Yeah, I like it here.

I hope this doesnt scare you, but I bled for 47 days. I was around 8-9 weeks when I miscarried, so that may have something to do with it. The dr. had told me it should last 1-3 weeks, so i was a little surprised when it lasted over 6 weeks. But, no one I have talked to on here or in real life has bled that long.

No it doesn't scare me I'd like to get some worst case scenarios just in case it does happen to me. Right now it's a light period and this morning I have no noticable cramps. Maybe I'll get lucky and it will be a short process.

Thanks for all the info and well wishes ladies It really helps!

I don't remember exactly how long I bled after my m/c but it seemed like it dragged on and on. I think the m/c with heavy bleeding took about a weekend and then about a month of light bleeding and some spotting. It really seemed to drag on if I remember correctly.

I don't know if this is true or not but I feel like the m/c kind of really cleaned me out. I had one kind of weird period after the m/c and then got pregnant with my son on the next cycle. Hopefully you will have a similar experience.

There is a lot of good information on the pregnancy loss forum. I think I remember a lot of people saying to drink lots of water during the process. Here is hoping for a speedy recovery.

Moms who bled 4-9 wks -- did you go to the doctor?

**********TMI ALERT!***********
I had some very weird periods before we recently ttc. VERY VERY heavy and a few months ago one was rather ODIFEROUS. I wondered if I had m/c or something. Very weird. Anybody else notice the odiferous part with their m/c? My m/c in 2004 was not. ***SORRY that was TMI***

Symptoms: I had a lot of gas to begin with, but now it's constipation. Still exhausted a lot of the time. Today CRANKY but quite recently I was better.

Today at work I noticed my right boob began feeling itchy (bottom, inside, under the nipple. I kept looking in my bra to see if something was in there and noticed several things on my boob that looked like little bite marks. A flea? My cubicle mate has TONS of plants. Did I mention it's a jungle in there? Others have been complaining about some migrating fleas. Tonight I'd had a good look at my boob....there's seven spots that are itchy and pink/red.... perhaps little bites? Think I'll give it a few days and see if it just goes away. Couldn't be a rash, could it? (paranoid)

I didn't go to the doctor. My dr. had prepared me for large amounts of blood and from what I read on the pregnancy loss boards it seemed a lot of people were amazed at the amount of blood - many went to the hospital thinking something was wrong only to find out they were in at the end of the m/c. Mine was rather painful for a day or 2 when the bleeding was heaviest and I never really saw anything that looked like tissue - just a lot of clotting. I don't remember an odor.

After the main m/c the bleeding afterward was more like a light period and spotting. I knew you bleed awhile postpartum so I guess I just thought it was like that. Although I didn't bleed nearly that long postpartum. I guess maybe the week or so after the m/c it was like a normal period then tapered to light/spotting that lasted another several weeks. I wish I could remember better. I never felt cramping, that I remember, after the first week. I think I had cramping pretty badly during the m/c then do-able cramps every now and then for maybe not quite a week. Then the rest was pain free (well, physically pain free, emotionally was a different story). So I guess because it wasn't really painful and wasn't really a lot of blood I didn't really feel like something was wrong.

That is probably more than you wanted to know - sorry to be so rambly. Just trying to remember as much as I can for you.

Hello fellow Canadians! I live in Ontari-ari-o but had visited Vancouver and Victoria once a handful of years ago. So beautiful!!! I can totally agree with that. On the ferry ride to Victoria we saw whales in the water. That was so profound! What a gorgeous province, B.C.

I had a doc appt yesterday at 6w, 2d and we saw the little flicker in the corner of the screen, but no lil one! I know it sounds stupid, but I was really freaked out..... i called my sister, and she was like "what, you think there is just a heart floating around in your uterus?" MAYBE! It really freaked me out. How can you tell how fast it was going? The doc was kinda like that lil flicker is the hb, there's your ovaries.... and so on..... didnt even focus on it. and that was the infertility guy!!!!!!

In addition to that, the night before I was sitting in a restaurant with dh and a friend, and i felt like i was bleeding..... i went to the bathroom, and sure enough, there was like a 4 inch circle of red blood on my pants..... i freaked out, walked out, sat down, and starting crying that I was having another m/c
from that point on (Tuesday night) I had very minimal spotting (light brown) only when i wipe, and none today

So, also at my doc appt, they told me that the pregnancy has detached a little bit from the uterine wall, so that sure dont sound good, but the doc said that all is not lost, and because there is a hb, there is a good sign that this can continue on to a normal healthy pregnancy....... at 6 1/2 weeks, i am practically on complete bedrest :

dont know what to do..... or think..... any suggestions???

How scary. I spotted with my first, the same way you're describing, at about the same time; around 6/7 weeks. It lasted a couple days and wasn't bad, and wasn't bright pink or red, but brown. Your body is purging some old yuck to make more room for your baby

But, OMG, that is scary. I know it.

I know how irritating it must be to be on bedrest, especially this early. Hang in there. You're in our thoughts and prayers.
