Advice on what to do after natural miscarriage at home!



Hello all.
I had a feeling my first pregnancy would end in miscarriage but I hoped for the best. I have just had a miscarriage yesterday lasting thru today. I passed the yolk sac and dove in the toilet for it. I wanted to see my baby Sebastian at 5 weeks, but I couldn't bare to break open the sac.(i think it was a boy) I later passed huge amounts of blood and clots/tissues. I think everything came out and now I'm just sore in the pelvic region. I feel like I'm having a painful period. Do you think I need to see a dr. ??I hate them and I have no insurance. I'm pretty sure my body handled the situation appropriately and got everything out. I'm sad but I just think it was God's will and thank God the baby had not really formed yet. I can't imagine how much more painful it'd be to have carried the baby and seen it on us and then lost it. I really empathize with you women who have experienced what I just have. It is awful and I wouldn't wish it on my enemy. I keep thinking is it the shrimp I ate, the slightly vigorous exercising, the fear of having the baby to the point of thinking of abortion,(i was gonna keep it though, it was just a thought. It's natural to feel guilty, but in the end I think this was just God's plan. I don't quite understand it but I'm trying to rationalize through the pain. Now I know what I knew I loved you before I met you means.....Please comment.

Sorry you have had to go through this I have had 9 natural miscarriages at home and once i had passed all the womb 'contents' it was like a heavy period. Rest as much as you can, take some brufen. I believe the body is a very powerful machine and thankfully i had no problems and never had to see my gp afterwards.

Hi hun, so sorry for your loss if the pain is not unbearable and your not loosing too many clots then maybe sit it out for a few days, if the bleeding goes on for a few weeks then you will need to see a doc, I miscarried myself and after the initial gush of loosing most of the pregnancy i bled for about 6 days getting like a normal period after about 2-3 days.
Please dont beat yourself up over eating a shrimp, i doubt very much if that had anything to do with it your probably looking for answers when frustrating as it is there isnt any, I came to terms with my M/C by assuming there must have been some terrible defect with the baby as it would be too heartbreaking to loose a healthy baby, you need to just give yourself time to grieve, these forums have been a godsend to me, there is always support here when you need it and people who have experienced the same thing, try and stay strong and you will come out the other side eventually xxx

Hi hun I am so sorry for your loss. I had a m/c at home just over 2wks ago. I went to my a&e, they did a blood test which showed my hormone levels were really low and an ultrasoundscan and internal scan which showed my womb was empty I started bleeding on Tuesday evening it got worse on Wednesday and on Thursday there were clots and at that point I knew. I stopped bleeding the following Thursday just like I would of done if I had had my AF as normal which, would of started on the Saturday. I was advised to do a HPT in about 3wks so this will be on Thursday just to make sure all has gone then, wait for my 1st AF which could take another 2-4wks to arrive. I can start TTC again. As I live in the UK I don't have to worry about insurance so, its a completly different situation for me. If you need to chat we are here for you.

Hi hun.. So sorry you are having to go through this. I had a miscarriage at the beginning of this year (natural at home) and I know how hard it is. If everything passed well for you and the bleeding is slowing down, your doctor will only be able to suggest pain meds and taking it easy. They might do blood work to make sure your HCG is coming down normal, but I would do as the other ladies suggested and just take a HPT in 3 weeks to make sure everything is down to a normal level. Take care of yourself hun. God's plan is always perfect.

So sorry to hear that you have had to go through this.
I had a miscarriage at home nearly four weeks ago now.
I did go and see my doctor and had an ultrasound scan to confirm miscarriage before i passed the sac and then a week later to confirm i had passed everything.
I do sympathise that you don't have insurance, but you should at least see your GP as if you have any retained products it can in rare cases cause an infection which needs sorting.
I don't want to scare you and like me you probably passed everything naturally. But i was really relieved when i had the second scan to be told that everything was back to as it should be. I hate the fact that i miscarried, but i took great comfort in knowing for certain that nature had taken it's cause and all was ok in there and ready to TTC again.
Sending you lots of
xx

I had a natural miscarriage at home last Thursday. I'd had a scan that morning because I was bleeding and it was a missed miscarriage. I later that day passed everything at home naturally - haven't been back to see anyone since. They booked my in for a second scan after the first one - so even though I am pretty sure everything passed I am going to go anyway just to make sure.
I am still bleeding though...have been bleeding for 11 days now!

*big hugs* i can't understand exactly what you are going though, but just rest and take ibuprofen if you have any pains!
We're here if you need to talk

Hello and so sorry to hear of your loss.
I had a natural MC a few weeks ago. Scan and hCG tests showed that the baby was dead, and then I bled a few days later. Like you I was in a lot of pain, and found passing the sack very emotionally painful. I've not been back to the hospital as I couldn't face it, but my GP doctor is positive I have got rid of everything naturally as the bleeding has now stopped. Maybe do a test and if it is then you probably don't need to involve a doctor.
I was absolutely in a mess for the first week, but am starting to feel positive about trying again now. All the girls on this forum have been a huge support to me. Don't know what I'd have done without them.
You must be grieving so badly still at the moment, but it will very gradually feel less awful. I'm here for you whenever you need to chat.

Niki xxxx

I had one at 10 weeks at home. I had gone to the hospital when it started and they really did not do much for me. I think you should be fine at home. It actually took almost a month for everything to come out, and my doctor still did not seem concerned. He said only to come in if I was The pain for me only lasted until I passed the sac. I went on to have a healthy pregnancy (so far!) this time.


I was in the same boat as you. I just had a feeling I was going to miscarry, and everything thought I just was being negative about the whole thing.
