We lost our (very beautiful) baby boy on the 19th. Delivered him suddenly at home, it was really crazy here. Anyway, I need to know how long this bleeding will go on for. My doctor insists it will be cherry, then like a period, then spotting. Well I got the cherry part, then it stopped, then the period, then it stopped for a few hours (stops for a few hours in the day, very weird), now the cherry again.
I have pleaded to be seen, but all I got was a request for a beta hCG and a CBC count. I did all that last night. I thought it was normal to be checked out to see if there is anything left in there? Granted, I did pass a lot of stuff in the 3 hours after the delivery. But not knowing what's going on with me right now is making me awfully nervous.
How did you guys bleed post miscarriage? (I had a full term and it was just blood and water, nothing like this). Please give me some advice on this - it's really making me think I am just going to bleed forever.
Today is the 5th and a half day of bleeding.
Thanks to everyone who responds. I have really enjoyed the boards here and feel the most comfortable - you guys are really great!
