After my miscarriage I bled for a week and a half. This was expected, and I was glad when it finally stopped, as it was just a constant reminder of what I had lost. Of course I then had to wait for the arrival of my next AF, which the sonographer and nurse told me it could be in the next 4-6 weeks from mc. So I was surprised when on Xmas Eve I started spotting again (thanks Santa!). I thought it was the arrival of AF pending, but nope… 

I’ve been waiting day after day for a ‘proper’ bleed indicating AF, which I was told would most likely be painful and heavy as I had a bit of baby left and obviously it would need to come out. (Jeez, even writing that is bringing a tear to my eye…) Well four weeks after spotting started, it finally ‘turned’! And now a week later it has finally stopped. This is the first day in 5 weeks I haven’t spotted/bled.

So since my miscarriage, I have spotted/bled for nearly 7 weeks in total! Though I am used to it, as it’s what used to happen before we started fertility treatment, but it has still been rather annoying. Though it wasn’t that heavy really, and only a little more painful than usual. But then, I never had any pain with my miscarriage either. 

So now I’ve finally had my first post-mc AF, I can concentrate on figuring out my cycles again. We don’t know when we’re going to ttc again yet, but I like to know where I’m at.

  1. So pleases things are settling Stacey – next month should be easier for you. cycle days are a bloody pain when TTC but after a miscarriage give you some feeling of control unlike the lack of you've suffered with a miscarriage. Look after you x
