Is this normal?

First I want to thank you all for being so supportive, sorry for being so needy lately. It seems you are the only ones who really help me. Thanks again. So today I started bleeding and it is so painful. I don't remember my last m/c being this painful. I've taken alleve and advil but these cramps are the worst ever. I have lots of clots and don't go back To the lab or doc till the middle of the week. Did anyone experience this? What can I do to make them hurt less? Should I be concerned? Again, thanks for the support and advice!

Hey, there :) When I started bleeding after my chemical, it was pretty painful...I didn't have too many clots because (this is pure speculation) but I think it was because my lining was just crap. But I do remember it being crazy as far as the cramps and pain was concerned.

I think it's pretty likely that what you're feeling is normal but remember what I said! Those dr's work for YOU and if ever you feel worried or anxious CALL THEM! I don't care how stupid you think it is K?

Thanks, you always make me feel better. They said I might need a rhogam shot, but my blood results are not back yet? Is this standard, they didn't do it last time? Where is my magic wand? To make this all better and give all of us our babies!!!

My first chemical was painful.

I dont recall clots other than a few small ones.

hi there, not sure if I have any answers and I'm not sure how far along you were ... my first m/c was a missed one, baby stopped growing at 7 weeks but m/c didn't happen until 12 weeks. They gave me painkillers but I didn't need them - not painful at all, just messy & emotionally traumatic (m/c at home)! Second m/c at 5 weeks was a totally different story - VERY painful. Not sure if there's any rhyme or reason ... but I will say that the pain on the 2nd m/c was a bit like going-into-labor pain - lots of lower back pain, perhaps because cervix was opening up? Keen to see what insights others have on this even tho I hope I'll never go thru the experience again!

This does sound normal to me. It will feel like a heavy, painful period. You can take tylenol, aleve, or advil. However, if you are bleeding incredibly heavily and feeling dizzy, or you are worried about too much blood loss, call your doctor or go to the ER to get checked out. Im very sorry that youre in so much pain (and grief) but I hope this passes for you quickly, so that you can begin to heal.

Ya know rhogam shots are something I know zero about. Can anyone else shed some light on this for Jen?

Jen, I don't know about the Rhogam shot, they told me at the hospital I didn't need it. This m/c was worse to me pain wise than the one at 11wks. I had a lot more cramping and pressure but it only lasted about 2 days. I took Darvocet for mine, figured it couldn't hurt anything. I'm on day 6 now and it seems to be over, no more bleeding nor cramps. I hope you can get thru this quickly and are able to return to normal soon. Rest as much as you can and know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

I have to agree that what you are feeling is normal.

Oh Jen, I am so sorry that you are in so much pain. Call your doc and see if they can give you some prescription pain meds. I don't generally advocate using pain meds, but if there was ever a reason for pain meds, a natural m/c is it!

So sorry Jen, that you have to go through this and have so much physical pain. I had a chem a few years back and I do remember having a lot of painful cramps and small clots too. Call your doctor if it gets to be too much. Hopefully it'll get better soon.
