For those of you who have had one how long did the bleeding last?  I spotted the day after and then didn't have anything for a few days and now I'm having a period like flow. Normal?

Also, when did you have a negative pregnancy test?  My OB said to test every 5 days to make sure my levels are going down. I had a MMC at 10 weeks. My line is still pretty dark (6 days after). 

TIA

I've had two at around the same gestation. I bled for 6 weeks with both. Some days heavy, some light, some just spotting. I bled right after the procedure a lot for the first few hours then my bleeding seemed to stop for a day or so and then it picked up again. I was still getting positives for up to 2 weeks afterwards.

I bled for 10 days after. It was really heavy for almost a week. The cramps were terrible. I didn't keep testing but tested at 3 week post d&c and got a negative.

I'm so sorry :( 
I lost my 1st pregnancy around 10 weeks, but they didn't do a D&C for another two months. I bled a ton, the cramping was horrible, but I didn't test. They did do a blood test maybe a month post op and my levels were negative.

Thanks ladies!  I'm glad to hear cramping is normal too. My OB said it would be super mild but I beg to differ :( 

I just want to fast forward through all of this.  How long did you all wait before ttc again?  We plan on trying again in July. I turn 30 this summer so we decided to take a fun trip and start trying after. Our ob said that was fine just wondering what others did.

I ttc 6 months later and got pregnant the first cycle. Unfortunately that pregnancy too ended in a mmc. We weren't TTC nor preventing afterwards. Got a positive test almost two months to the day and my dd3 is 7 months old. Good luck!

Thanks!  I'm already anxious about trying again DH would just assume do it as soon as our OB clears me but I need some time. So sorry for your loss I can't imagine two in a row, you're one tough woman. Congrats of your rainbow baby!

It was rough. I thought I was going to stop breathing when they told there was no heartbeat a second time. It felt like a nightmare but I have my healthy DD and I have to believe she was meant to be.

I actually had my D&C pretty much exactly 8 years ago today. I went on BC pill after it, but because of an antibiotic I conceived around 4th of July :) found out I was pregnant with my son 7/18/2009. I hope it happens quickly for you!
