    I'm not really sure... I just miscarried this past week, the sac measured 5 weeks 5 days, but I was 8 weeks 4 days along. I had very terrible cramps on Tuesday morning to the point I was doubled over crying. Than on Wednesday at 6:45am I got up from bed to use the toilet and a very large mass passed. When I looked at it it looked just like a sac and a fetus attached... I was devastated. I'm not sure if this is "normal" or bigger than normal but the nurses and doctor believe what I saw was the sac and baby. I'd guess the size to be about that of a half dollar. Sorry you're going through this.. :hugs:

    Jenny i never seen the sac, ever. It was more like just a heavy period that last 4 weeks - so it must have broke away or something

    Hi hun. TMI alert: I don't know how far along you are but there was no mistaking when I passed the sac (I was 12wks lmp but sac was nearly 9 weeks) I had massive cramps (had to go to A&E they were that bad) then about 4 hours later, something large made it's way to my knickers. No mistaking it. It was a sac, all in tact and about the size of a small grapefruit. 48 hours prior to that the m/c started with normal, period type bleeding and cramps. :hugs:

    I was told that if I did miscarry naturally that I might not even see a sac. It might just appear as blood clots and blood. Sometimes the tissue breaks up before it's passed.

    hiya hunni,

    Its easy to miss the sac, when its passed it does resemble a clot being coated in blood, but at your size, (mine measured 5 weeks 3 days) its about the size of a £2 coin but its more oval in shape. You normally pass it the day you get the leg ache/pain i believe, i know i bled for a week, suddenly got pulling pains on the last day and passed the sac that evening. The bleeding almost instantly lightened up and 2 days on it stopped.

    Its good that you are taking the iron tablets and i hope you have passed it, i know it sounds awful but after a week of bleeding, i was relieved it was all over. Chin up, you know where i am if you need a chat/scream xx

    i remember wishing someone had been with me hun, because ihad no idea what to expect at all and was really frightened. They just seem to herd you in and out at hospitals too. Take it easy on yourself now, i found i began to grieve pretty soon after the bleeding stopped, it was like i was too much in limbo to do so when bleeding xxx

    I'm sorry you are going through this hun xxx

    4 days after my first d and c (which didn't empty my womb completely and now have an investigation with the hospital concerned) i passed part of my baby which was about 1 1/2 inches long and grey. I was 14+6 baby was 12+4 when i miscarried. My OH called 999 and i was rushed back in for a second d and c :cry: xxx
