Here is my story. I am 24 years old and I was 8 weeks pregnant with my first child. I had my first prenatal appointment this week and everything was good. However, two nights ago I began bleeding and having lower pelvic/back pain, which sadly resulted in a miscarriage yesterday afternoon. The doctor performed an ultrasound and determined that I did not need a D&C. Since I came home from the hospital I have continued to have bleeding and some really bad cramping. How long should I expect this to last? My husband and I have talked about TTC again in the near future. When should I expect to start having my periods again? Any input or thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I just really don't know what should be happening right now.
