blighted ovum stopped bleeding

I started lightly bleeding on friday went to the doctor and they did a u/s and told me i had a blighted ovum. My bleeding has been very very light almost has completely stopped, but i know i haven't passed anything yet. Is this normal and how long will it take for me to completely m/c? I would have been 8ws on monday.

i was diagnosed with a blighted ovum aswell on the 30th dec, was soo devastated as 2 days b4 new year....neway i chose to wait naturally as i dnt like the idea of operation and i cant stay in hospital as i have 2 small children that i need to look after. i was only bleeding lightly when i went to have scan and i was being optimistic hoping it was nothing but wen i saw the empty sack i didnt no what to think...after i understood what it was it was just the waiing that scared me as ive had a misscarige before but i was 18 weeks...and was a cervical problem so i knew this time wouldnt be as bad as i was only 11 weeks and it wasnt a baby yet just a fertilised egg so they say anyway....the brown spotting turned to red on the 4 jan and then yesterday on the 6th i awoke with sharp period pain quite bad and had to take kids to skool....i went bk to bed when i got home and i was sooooo afraid to stand up again as i could feeling pouring feeling even when i moved i finally walked slowly to go toilet and then when i sat down .....everything just came out didn't hurt but felt disgusting since then just been bleeding normal no more clots or pain and i think its over now....just have to have scan on monday to see if its all gone....just want my body to be normal again so we can try again.
God bless you all on here!
