I recently had my second miscarriage, and have an odd question. Here's the story:
Found out I was pregnant, had a blood test, doctor confirmed that it looked "good".
Later in that same week, I had horrible cramping, and some brown spotting. Called the doc, they said it was probably implantation bleeding. But, the cramping didn't stop, and 3 days later I had another blood test. That test showed that the pregnancy hormone was not "doubling as expected" and I was likely miscarrying. Later that same day I started bleeding and had literally the worst period of my life. And it was very obvious what was going on. I talked with the doc again and she was reassuring that this was just the passing- no worries.
After 7 days the bleeding stopped- I felt like I do after my period. The strange thing, and here's the question, is that last night I started bleeding again. Bright red and with "stuff" in it; if you know what I mean. I also had a lot of cramping again.
I called the doctor and she said that when you miscarry you can "sluff it off in stages". Is that true? I don't mean to doubt my doctor, but I was under the impression that you "pass" the pregnancy and that's like having a period- I didn't think it was like having 7 days of a period followed by some time off and then some more bleeding???
Any advice or words of wisdom on this one? I'm hoping for some idea of what to expect here, because that makes me feel a little better. Going to the bathroom and seeing more blood yesterday was a shock and a poignant reminder of what I've been through, and as you all know this is very difficult.
Thanks, and I appreciate your thoughts,
