How far along? It depends on how many weeks you are.

Emotionally it stays with you forever. I had a miscarriage over 30 years ago and I still remember the pain and loss. Physically it depends on how far along you are and whether you had to deliver or have a DNC afterward.


I had a miscarriage 5 years ago I was 7 in half months with identical twins baby girls I still hurt inside and out


It depends. About 8 years ago I miscarried at 8 weeks. Didn’t find out until 13 weeks. The baby still had not passed on its own at this point and I had to have a D&C.

Going through it normally a few days to cpl weeks depending on every woman.

Mine lasted for a little over a week.

I was 4 weeks, the bleeding lasted a week and a half to about 2 weeks and then it took 4 to 6 weeks to have my first period after that, but the emotional pain yes stays with you forever and I recommend you talk to your spouse and other people about it to get advice or to future prepare yourself for the future! I wish you luck momma😇were still mommas even though our babies are in heaven wishing us the best!


My first was about 4 weeks of bleeding. I was 6.5 weeks along but didn’t find out until 10 weeks.

The second and third lasted about a week and I was about 5 weeks along with both.

It all depends on how far along you were. I’ve had 9 and I usually miscarried between 5-11 weeks and they lasted about 1-2 weeks to fully pass and stop bleeding.

I’m sorry you are going through this :heart: Praying for you.

I am 3 weeks in with bleeding with My miscarriage. I was 8 weeks 5 days

I was due in September and had an ultrasound in February probably 7-8 weeks I believe. I can’t remember. No heartbeat. They didn’t tell me until I had my prenatal in March and told me my body would absorb it and sent me home. Come July I finally miscarried but it was horrible. I contracted every evening for a few weeks it was slow. My SO and I went to the movies and I spent the night in the bathroom contracting and it finally came out. :cry: but definitely don’t do that. I talked to a dr when I was getting on birth control and she was mad.


My mom lost a baby girl in 1950. I came along two years after. She talked about that baby girl all my life. She had four children after that. But the one baby girl was forever painful.


I had a miscarriage at 9 weeks i had previously birthed 5 kids this was my only miscarriage i wish someone would have told me what was going to happen i bled for 2 weeks in the beginning i had never seen so much blood in my life i went to the hospital a few times i thought i was going to bleed to death i eventually passed the baby i completely had a mental break down im so sorry you are going through this
