what to expect? m/c today

Unfortunately, I am new to this board, but very thankful that it exists to support us. I woke up this morning spotting and cramping. Mu Hcg level dropped from 50 to 10 over the  weekend. I have already spoken with my doctor. This is my first m/c and I guess it would be labeled a natural miscarriage? Those that experienced this- what was your experience? How long did it last? At this point, the spotting has turned into a light period with cramping . If you took off of work, how long were you out?

Re: what to expect? m/c today

  • I'm sorry you are going through this. I had a natural miscarriage last week at 8w6d. Here's how it happened for me:

    5w6d: embryo stopped growing
    6w6d to 7w5d: brown bleeding
    7w6d to 8w5d: red bleeding
    8w6d: more red bleeding, labor-like cramps (in intervals, but not nearly as strong as labor contractions) for two hours, then I passed something larger that I could definitely feel.
    Now: my bleeding has slowed down and is now nearly gone 5 days after.

    HCG: 12000 at 8w1d, 10000 at 8w4d

    It was all very manageable and not very painful for me. Cramping is a good sign for impending miscarriage. Hopefully it will all happen quickly for you. Good luck and take care of yourself!

  • ***siggy warning***

    So sorry you are going thru this, hun. I didn't have cramping at first, just some bleeding (enough to cover a panty liner). Then I had nothing for an entire day. Then I had intense cramping (like a period and even a little worse) and heavy bleeding with lots of clots. My bleeding lasted 17 days and that included heavy bleeding and very light spotting toward the end. My hcg level when the m/c occurred was 99 and it took 3 weeks to get to 3 (less than 5 is considered negative). I was 5w2d at time of m/c and this was my 2nd pregnancy.

    T&P for you. ((Hugs))

  • How far along? I have had 2. The first one was not bad at all physically speaking. I was only 6 weeks. Started with spotting and turned into a "period" with clots and cramping. I took Motrin and even went to work to distract myself. I wouldn't recommend going to work but my point is it was fairly manageable as far as pain is concerned.

    The 2nd one, however, totally different. I was 10 weeks. I tried to miscarry naturally at home but hemorrhaged and got rushed to the ER and had an emergency D&C.

    I really think everyone is different and even every miscarriage is different. But I do think my 2nd one was worse bc I was further along.

    I'm so sorry you are going through this but glad you found this board for support. Make sure you rest, drink a lot of water.

    Hang in there!
  • Only 6 weeks. I am finding that is "manageable" with ibuprofen. Trying to decide whether or not to go back to work tomorrow or to take another day. I am a teacher so I have to be interactive all day( can't just hide away).

  • I'm so sorry for your loss. Every miscarriage is totally different. I am also a teacher and just had a natural m/c. It was my second so I kind of knew what was happening and went to work. I took off the next day to see the doctor and that was a Friday so I had the rest of the weekend to recover. I would say whatever you are comfortable doing is what is right for you. Welcome to the board and I hope you find some support here like I have.
