We miscarried naturally on the weekend. I was supposed to be 7-8 wks but the ultrasound we had last week was only showing 5 wks. Things started slow on Saturday, mild cramps & some bright red bleeding, by supper it was worse, by 9pm it was excruciating pain, and by 11pm it was done. It was horrible. I’ve contacted the Doctor, she told me to watch the bleeding and if things are still happening by this weekend we can schedule and ultrasound to make sure everything has passed. She figures it has though. I mentioned I was still feeling some pain/discomfort but she didn’t seem concerned.
I’ve been having sharp pulling/shooting pains in my abdoman/groin/back area. They come and go. It’s worse when I move too quickly, or standup/sit down. I’m also haveing another sort of pain, but I’m not sure how to discribe it; it hurts all throughout my stomach. I’m thinking it may be gas/digestion related but it seems so much worse than I’ve ever expienced before. I know this was a huge shock to my body, and I imagine it will take some time to heal, but these pains have me worried and uncomfortable. I will be calling the Doctor in a few days to update her on everything, and I’m sure she will take care of it if there is a problem, but any insight would be helpful until then.
My question is for anyone who has had a natural miscarraige, how/what did you feel afterwards? And for how long?
On another note: I am so sorry to anyone who has gone through this. This was the most painful thing I have ever experienced, both mentally and physically, and I hate that others have had to go through it.

I’m sorry for your loss. I haven’t been through a miscarriage but did read a bit up on the subject (I’m in early pregnancy and wanted to be prepared just in case) and read something about cramps from your uterus shrinking back to normal size. Does it feel like menstrual cramps or more like in your stomach? Again I’m so sorry bee, take care of yourself.

wowbagger: i am so sorry for your loss. I’ve had 4 natural m/c and one d&c so can hopefully help. My first miscarriage at about 7 weeks was my most painful, it’s also hard when you don’t know what to expect. I had strange pains and cramps for almost 2 werks after that one. I remember going back to the doctor twice as I was so worried but was told it’s normal and your body just adjusting to not being pregnant anymore. I hope that you never have to experience this again and that you are taking care of yourself!

jessc27: Thank you! It comes and goes, today is on the easier side., just the occasial sharp pain so far.
peegee: Thank you! I’ve had a few “menstrual” like cramps over the past few days, but most of it has been the other pains like I discribed above. I wish you a happy, healthy 9 months 🙂
bubbycakes: Thank you for sharing! This was at about 7 weeks, the pain got to be so bad I was sweating, violently shaking, and thought I may pass out. My poor Husband was lost, he had no idea what to do to help me. It was a horrible experience. I’m so sorry you have had to go through that so many times. I can’t imagine doing it again.
My guess is this pain is all normal, it’s just alarming. I wish it would just go away.

wowbagger: I am so sorry for your loss Bee. I had a similar experience too about 6 weeks ago. My ultrasound at 8 weeks was showing fetal length of only 6 weeks, and I miscarried naturally at around 10 weeks. To answer your question, once I started bleeding I didnt have cramps that often at all. But when I did, it felt like my uterus was massaging itself really hard that my lower abdomen really hurt. It happened a few times and it was kind of an alert that some huge blood clots were about to come out 1-2hrs later.
I hope the bleeding and the cramping will end soon. Mine ended after 1.5 weeks. Virtual hugs to you 🙂

daisydee: Thank you, and I’m sorry you had to go through that as well. Tomorrow will be two weeks for me and I feel almost completely normal now. I still get a few little pulls/pains if I move to fast, but that’s it. The bleeding stopped about a week ago thankfully, and I took a test a few days ago and the line was barely visible. Now I’m looking forward to starting my next cycle so we can try again 🙂
