    HI, I'm new here today :0) Hope you don't mind me joining in, i just had my first AF after m/c at 4 1/2 weeks in December. It only lasted 3 days and today it just stopped completely! It was very heavy and full but not really painful... thank god! I myself wasn't sure if this was normal but we seem to be in the same boat!

    I was expecting a very heavy and painful period but is was just normal which is fairly light 4 days long and not much cramping.

    My periods actually went lighter after my miscarriage. I used to have abnormally-heavy periods that started to affect my iron levels where I had to be on supplements. My periods after my miscarriage were spotty and light but they lasted 10 days instead of 7. My whole cycle was messed up. I went from long cycles (about 40 days) to 18. So I was bleeding more than not. Then I had a loooong 70 day cycle and that's when I got my bfp so I don't know if my periods were going to return to normal or not.

    :hugs: I was in the same place as you after my miscarriage. I felt so messed up and broken and I cried alot. Even when I wasn't bleeding I was getting PMS symptoms all the time such as bloating, cramps and nausea. Yet all my blood work and even an ultrasound showed everything was perfectly normal. Sometimes it takes awhile for your body to recover but it WILL recover.
    :hugs:
