Well this is my first post here so I will explain what happened we went on april 23 for a u/s should have been almost 7wks it dated me at 5wks just a gestational sac and yolk sac no fetal pole or hb so they said come back on may 15 so we went yesterday and unfortunately still dated us at 5 wks and should have been 10wks no baby no heartbeat! The dr said 99% sure we would lose it and sure enough have bleed all day! This would have been our first! I was soo happy b/c I have endometriosis and the fact that we even got pregnant was such a blessing! This is sooo hard b/c I really feel like I have let my DH and all of our family and friends down! I am very sorry to the rest of you that are going through this also! I was also kind of wondering what to expect b/c the bleeding isnt heavy yet? Will I pass clots or what will continue to happen? I will greatly appreciate any help you can give me! THANKS!
I lost my angel in Oct., I would have been almost 12 weeks,although there was no real development after 7 weeks...and my little one was actually absorbed,so there was not as much tissue to pass,however,there was a lot of heavy bleeding and clots.
Every woman is different, and I am hoping that this will not be too difficult for you physically....emotionally, I know it's a different story, trust me I know.
I can't really answer your question, but I wanted to let you know that I am so sorry for what you're going through. I know it's difficult, but try and remember to take good care of yourself. Rest and give yourself time to physically recover and visit us often if you need support.

I am sorry for your loss (((HUGS)))... Your loss is NOT your fault....You did nothing to let anyone down..remember that.
The bleeding will get heavier...You may notice a good amount of clots, and more intense cramping. I would suggest that you have someone buy (if you do not have them) the overnight long pads. I used these (doubled up side by side) while the worst of it was going on..
KUP on how you are doing. My heart goes out to you....
