Symptoms After Miscarriage

Hello - I had a miscarriage last Sunday (2-19-2006).  I was 7wks1day when this happened and I am experiencing a natural m/c.  During my 7 weeks I experienced some weight gain and my breasts had increased almost an entire size...how long will these symptoms last?  I am still bleeding but lightly.  Its horrible that I m/c my first pregnancy, but to have this reminder lingering is devastating -  Could someone please advise......Thanks.

Hello! I just had a miscarrige on 1/31 and I was 11.5 weeks and am still experiencing some symptoms, they are staring to go away just this week. I am so sorry for you, I know how sad you feel. I had no idea something so small could affect a person this much. Please hang in there!

Thanks for the message - And I am sorry for your loss as well. This has probably been the saddest time of my life!!!! Its been a week and I still have larger than normal breasts and carrying some extra weight - I really hope to see these symptoms disappear soon!!!!

Im so sorry to hear about your m/c. I had a d&c at 8 wks in December. I definately felt the symptoms you felt and they went away immediately after. My breasts were bigger and pants tighter due to the pregnancy. Every body is different but you should feel like your old self after the m/c is over and hormones go back to being balanced.

Again, Im so sorry and wish you strength and luck through this difficult time.

I too started m/c on 19th. I am still bleeding some. Breasts are still large too. My hcgs have dropped down to 200 and something. I have to go back next week for more tests. Still feel pg too. Hope this helps.

I had pregnancy symptoms for 3 weeks following my D&C.  i was 10 and a half weeks along when my baby was diagnosed with no heart beat. I had postive home pregnancy tests until 3 weeks after D&C.  Exactly 4 weeks after my D&C I took a HPT and it was finally negative.  I ovuated 4 weeks 1 day after D&C and got my period 6 weeks and 1 day after D&C.  It is a rough reminder that we were carrying a baby, but unfortunately there is nothing we can do about it.  Since you are having a natural miscarriage, your HCG levels are already dropping.  Mine were still rising... I am sorry for your loss, but  like Lunabella said, time will be your best friend.. and i promise.. it will get better...

I am sorry to hear about your m/c... I also m/c my first pg. and had a D& C 12/20.... I think I had the pg. symptoms for about 3 weeks (I was 8 weeks)...they never did any bloodwork after that... I am currently going to an infertility specialist and had AI which it seems the only way I can get pg...  but anyway, keep thinking positve and it will happen....  It is a difficult thing to go through...I agree with the rest of the postings....time is what you need!!
