Movement after an abortion?

Hi. I had a surgical ab yesterday. Everything seemed to go ok. I calculated I was 5 weeks, but the ultrasound lady said 6 wks, 6 days. Come to find out thats what all of us girls were told.
Today I'm still feeling fluttering in my uterus, and I'm scared to death im still pregnant because I am actually only 5 weeks, & they missed the pregnancy!
Anyone else experienced fluttering? Could it be from my uterus returning to normal? I've had hardly any bleeding!

I answered in the other post, but I'd guess it's your uterus returning to normal. It's got to readjust to losing the pregnancy, and that takes time.

Thank you very much. I've just read so many stories on the Internet of failed ab , & these women having to return for a repeat procedure :(.

Do let us know if you do go in and find out for sure what's going on. I'll keep my fingers crossed.
