Timeline of events- Miscarriage
At 7 wks I noticed my symptoms seemed to be waning not progressing so I went in for an US and hcg check. Baby had stopped developing around 5 wks and my levels were dropping. I’ve been thru a DNC as well as meds to induce spontaneous abortion and both were horrible. This time I chose to wait it out and let my body take care of itself. So it went like this...found out on Wednesday that the pregnancy wasn’t viable. Began spotting brown by Friday. By Sunday my lower back was aching, I was having cramps and my vag was hurting (pretty sure it was due to dilation.). I then began bleeding pretty heavily and passed a large amount of tissue. So I’m thinkin the worst is over and now I’m just waiting on the bleeding to stop so I can try again next cycle. Just thought I’d let y’all know my experience as I was not sure what to expect.

So sorry to hear this. I went through this in December 2014 - January 2015. I had blighted ovum. I choose the pill to cause everything to pass and then that didn't work 100% so had to have the DNC anyways. It really sucks and the pain that comes with trying to pass it without the DNC freaking hurts. Wishing you the best of luck next cycle!

That was my first experience with a miscarriage. We then had our son who just turn 3 on 12/16. I am now 8 weeks pregnant. I had an ultrasound at 6 weeks and all looked well and I have another one tomorrow that I'm pretty nervous for because, like you, my symptoms have pretty much diminished. Good luck to you!

I'm so sorry that you went through this. I had a similar experience in October. I was 7 weeks, but had been watching slow hcg progression and spotting from 5 weeks on. I knew most likely it would be a loss, but kept up the hope. I also opted to do the natural way at home and had a similar experience to you. I did initially regret doing it that way, as I didn't start to bleed for several days after I knew it was over, and those days were so hard, but in the end it was better. They didn't follow my hcg after 80, so I didn't know when my next cycle started. I did get pregnant in a shocking twist in December, but I was just 5 weeks when I lost that pregnancy as well. I'm currently 4 weeks now! I wish you the best of luck, you're obviously a strong lady. I hope you find lots of support on your journey from this forum.
