Hi ladies,

I'm supposed to be going through an early miscarriage (5 weeks), but I'm bleeding very lightly. Am i supposed to be bleeding heavily? Well, I guess I'll have my answers tomorrow when i go back to the Dr. I'm just so scared he might say I

Hi there,

I had two miscarriages in 2008.

I am so sorry you are going through this. I have lost 6 babies, anywhere from 5 weeks to 13 weeks. Given your situation you will likely have a normal or slightly heavier period. But everyone is different. Since your HCG is not back to 0 yet, it may take it just a bit to get going, so don't stress. Also don't let your doctor talk you into a D&C unless it is truly necessary. I had one and I would not choose to do it again. Most women have no problems with them at all, but it messed my cycle up; while one created severe problems for a friend of mine. Since it is so early, there really shouldn't be a reason for one, but they can do an u/s in a few days just to make sure everything has emptied out properly. That is where the risk comes in, is if the miscarriage is not complete. But give it time, for some it is over in a few days, for others it can take a week or more, even up to two weeks. Talk to your doctor or call a midwife for more info, or you can even find midwife sites on the internet that can be very helpful with questions like this. Don't stress, just take it one day at a time. Many ((((hugs)))) to you and know that you are not alone.
