    Hi I wonder if anyone can help me who has been in a similar situation.

    I lost my baby girl at 21 weeks on 14th April. This was 7 weeks ago and I am still bleeding. Me and the OH want to start trying but obviously need to stop bleeding first. Did anyone else bleed this long or longer?

    Thanks

    xx

    hi hun i lost my little girl at 22 weeks im so sorry for your loss!!

    i only bled for a short time after but i remember my doctor telling me that if i bled for longer than 4 weeks to go straight back to them so maybe you should just go and see what they have to say, they may re-scan you just to check everything is as it should be and they'll prob check for infection!! im TTC also since mc but not using anything other than chance so fingers crossed for both of us hun
    xxxxx let me know how you get on!!

    I am very sorry for your loss :cry: I agree with going to the dr as there may be still some tissue left in there causing infection... is it a heavy bleed or a spotting?

    Hi hun,
    So sorry for your loss.

    I lost my little boy at 20 weeks. I was induced as there was no heartbeat at the scan. I bled for about 8 weeks. I started, stopped for a week about 4 weeks in & then started again at week 5. All was fine, I had held onto some tissue & once this had passed my bleeding tailed off over the next three weeks xx

    Hi my lovelies, thank you for your comments.

    JoJo23 and Totsiegb I am also so sorry for your loses! Totsiegb I was also induced at 21 weeks as there was no heartbeat..... awful experience! :-(

    Well I have spoken with my doctor and I have to go back Tuesday for the Post mortem results so they should be doing a scan then. I had an awful lot of clots about 2/3 weeks after m/c so went to docs they gave me anti biotics to clear any possible infection but am still bleeding. It isn't heavy at all some days it'll be a browny discharge then it'll be blood!!

    Do you know if there is a chance I might need a d&c?

    I am hoping to start trying soon hence why I want to stop bleeding soon plus its a right pain in the backside lol!

    Fingers crossed for us all who are TTC or WTTC... our day will come xx

    I am sorry I dont know what the chances are regarding D&C, Fingers crossed it will stop on its own.
    Fingers crossed we all get the BFP we deserve & get our lovely babies.

    as far as i know hun if you have retained tissue it all depends on the size of it as to whether you need a d and c... i had a scan about a week after i gave birth and i had about 1cm of retained stuff but they let me hom and it passed by itself eventually. my 2 periods since have been quite heavy though with a few clots also, its only now im getting back to 'normal' whatever that is lol!

    hope the postmortam results are ok hun and you get the all clear from them xxxxxxxx:hugs:

    Well I have bleeding very lightly as I said and today I think AF arrived as I am bleeding heavy and have major stomach pains and a little back ache. So I am hoping that is a good sign and the bleeding will stop after. Fingers crossed.

    I will update you all on the PM results. Also keep me updated on TTC etc hopefully you get a BFP soon! xxxxxx

    Hi sweetie sorry for your loss :hugs: I bled constantly for 8weeks after losing LO at 17weeks,sometimes literally pouring!it took the doctors this long and the realisation that my iron was so low I needed a blood transfusion,for them to investigate!I had retained a small piece of tissue,2cm which wasn't passing on it's own so in my case a d&c was necessary. Afterwards everything was fine!good luck I hope it settles soon and you get a bfp quickly. X

    Hi Emma2810

    Thank you very much and I am also very sorry for your loss. Well over the weekend I passed a blood clot which was about size of 10p. Stopped bleeding saturday and then started again last night :growlmad:

    Well I will see what the doctors say tomorrow when I go and fingers crossed. Have you got a BFP yet since having the D&C and if so how longer after? xx

    Hi my lovelies,

    So had my PM results yesterday and it came back that my babies heart stopped beating as I had a rare virus called CMV (anyone heard of this). But thankfully they said my body will now be immune to CMV so won't happen again AND also finally stopped bleeding and had a scan and they confirmed it looked like I had my first AF thank god. So we have decided to NTNP now so am feeling rather happy!!:happydance:

    Hope you are all good xx :hugs: :kiss:
