I know it may be quite different for everyone but I mentioned on a post last week that I had to wait until this Thursday for a D and C however since Sunday I started to get bad cramping and the bleeding has become more intense (after starting 2 weeks ago), about half hour ago I passed something (sorry if this is TMI) but it was around 10cm or more long, I had to pull it out with tissue because it was hanging and was white and bloody looking. I had to look away because I was a little traumatised, so far I have just been coping by telling myself that I'm having a really bad period so was shocked all over again.
Does it usually come all at once or in different stages? I do feel much less crampy since it happened but I imagine my body is preparing itself for the next stage
That may have been the baby. That may have been the worst of it honey. I know for me I had heavy bleeding and the cramping ramped up really bad. Then one morning I passed something long and looked to be tissue and clots. I didn't look too closely because it was traumatizing but I am certain that that was my little baby. You may be nearly done with things and might not need the d&c on thursday. My cramping eased off a lot after that as well. Hugs. It's a hard and scary and uncertain process. You should give your doc a call if you are uncertain though. That's what they are there for.

Yeah, I didn't want to look much either, it is all very surreal.
Well that would be an ideal outcome if I did not have to go through the D and C as well, I have a consultation at the hospital tomorrow so I will let them know what has happened so far and I guess they will give me another US to check.
I gives me some comfort to know that my experience is similar to others because although this is a horrible process I feel like my body is behaving as it should do under the circumstances.
That's how mine went too. Looking back, I was probably miscarrying for weeks before I knew. When I passed everything, I knew it. I couldn't look but I felt it. It was traumatizing and I just slept that whole day and the next.
I hope your appt goes well.

Hi everyone, thanks for your messages. I have just returned from my appointment at the hospital. You were correct in recognising that that was the worst of it. I told them about what had happened yesterday so they gave me a scan to check it out.
I completed the MC yesterday and there is no remaining tissue so thankfully it is not necessary for me to have the operation tomorrow.
The bleeding should stop in a week to 10 days and I should start a new cycle in 4 to 6 weeks when I will be able to try again.
I think I may wait for a couple of cycles though, give myself a chance to recover and start a healthier routine. I have just finished university as well and am in the middle of going through interview processes for jobs. I sat through an interview last Thursday while all this was happening!
Anyhow, despite feeling upset about losing my first pregnancy I feel comforted knowing that I am able to conceive and there is no reason that we can't try again
