question about after a mc [Shelly&Dexter&Felix] 2 kids; 1 angel baby; London, United Kingdom 5299 posts

It was my first miscarriage. I was 6weeks (ish) 2weeks ago today.
I bled heavily with clots for about a week. stopped for a couple days then bled for a day then nothing. Until yesterday and today I've had a lot of brown blood. I know brown is old blood so is it just left over from the mc...? I've also had a lot of cramps and discomfort the last couple days, worse than when I was bleeding heavily. and my c-section scar has been majorly stinging! I'm not sure if my scar stinging has anything to do with the mc, just thought I'd mention that too.



Is this all normal? should I still be having all the Brown blood? the Doc that did the blood tests and told me its a mc said to ring if I bleed heavily but I wouldn't say this was bleeding or heavy. I just assumed it'd all be over once the bleeding stopped but I'm still getting cramps and stuff. :(

I'd call and ask just to be sure that you passed everything. Sorry for your loss momma.

I would probably call the dr. You may not have passed everything. Doesn't hurt to call.

I have had brown spotting up to or almost up to my next period for all my miscarriages except the 2nd trimester one. It's normal. If you get a fever though you should be call your doctor.

i haven't got a fever or anything. Just cramping and the brown blood.
I'd have to wait until Monday to ring now. The doc said she's Sure I passed everything with the amount that I bled.



Could I be Ovulating? Or is it too early for that? the pains are very much similar to my ovulation pains but I dunno.

Just the bleeding can cause cramps too.

I'd say it sounds pretty normal. My c section scar hurts every time I have a period.
