First cycle after a miscarriage

I don't really know where to put this but here goes...I found out my baby's heart stopped beating on 8/13 after having an episode of bright red spotting on 8/11.  We figure my baby died on 8/11 at 10.4 weeks.  I spotted on and off until the 17th when I ended up in the hospital with a major hemorrhage and finally passed my baby and all other tissue. I then continued to bleed and spot until 9/1.  So I don't know when to count as the actual miscarriage date but I guess that doesn't matter.  So on 9/12 only 3w5d after hemorrhage date I woke to a large clot and figure AF was early.  No big but it only lasted about 8 hours then went to spotting.  Then on the 9/15 I started to bleed again and have been bleeding ever since.  It is now a full 6 days of bleeding at a fairly decent pace and now I am passing a lot of clots.  I have not been cramping or anything like that which is not normal for me and a normal cycle.  Also my normal cycles never last more than 3 days.  If you count since I first started to bleed I am at 9 days.  Is this normal for the first cycle after a miscarriage?  Also should I be concerned because my hemoglobin was so low upon leaving the hospital (at level of 9)?   I am still on iron.  I just don't know what to think.  We would like to try again but I need to know things are okay.
