When I miscarried the first time in September, I started running and it took about 1 week. I was bleeding lightly then heavier. I was scheduled for a D&C on the following Tuesday. Friday was the day I expelled the baby and contents. I was at the mall and I was bleeding heavy and came home felt contractions, barely made it up the stairs and bam everything fell into the toilet. It depends on your body.

Please know you are in my thoughts

My first mc I had a d&c. My second, I mc naturally. Her heartbeat had stopped only a few days before, but an u/s confirmed she had died. I was booked for d&c but went into labour the night before.
I think its different each time for everyone. I think red rasberry leaf tea can cause uterine contractions and may speed things up. I could be wrong on this. Ive also heard vitex can cause uterjne cintractions too.

I am so very sorry for your losses.

I had a missed miscarriage at 8 weeks and waited to miscarriage naturally. It was weeks before I had any cramping or bleeding. All in all it was about 6 weeks before it was over. Once I started spotting 2 weeks later I spotted for 4 weeks on and off then when it finally happened it was quick and not as painful as I thought it would be. I did start to take vitamin c the week before it helps to lower your progesterone levels and help speed things up. You can look up the dosage online. Two weeks later I had a period.

I went for a private scan yesterday and the baby measured 6+4 when I was 10+3 so it was pretty obvious what had happened. I had no bleeding or cramping before the scan but having m/c before I had a feeling something wasn't right. The weird thing is as soon as I knew the baby wasn't viable, I started bleeding - literally hours after the scan. I don't know if it was the ultrasound or what that started it. My previous m/c happened straight away naturally and took a week in total, this one as you can see took 4 weeks from the baby stopping growing to start. Sending hugs xx

I am so sorry for all your losses. I had a mmc last dec. Went for a scan at just over 7 weeks but baby showed 5+6. I chose to wait for a natural miscarriage. I didn't start bleeding until about 4 weeks after the scan, and then it took another 4 weeks until it all happened. By then I was nearly ready for medical involvement as I felt that I had given my body enough of a chance to make it happen. I am so glad that it did happen naturally but it was a long wait and pretty tough. I had no pain whatsoever when it happened. My only upset is that I did end up bleeding for another 4 weeks after baby had passed, and so I did have to have an ERPC anyway, which is what I had been wanting to avoid. I was somewhat reassured that I knew the surgery was not to remove my baby but just clots to stop the bleeding, my baby had passed completely naturally.

Hugs to you all. xx
