I found out a few days ago that I am having a miscarriage. Baby has no heartbeat at 9 weeks, and I've been spotting. I opted to not have medical intervention at this point, as I was already spotting, but I'm wondering how long this is going to take (and how long I can handle waiting...) Bleeding has increased, but honestly, is still nothing like the "heavier than a heavy period" my doctor said I would see.
At this point, I"m just starting to want a little closure on the situation. This is my first miscarriage, I'm only 27 and already have a beautiful 2 1/2 yo, so this took me completely by surprise. I've read other moms who had "incomplete" miscarriages, where their bodies never fully expelled all the tissue, and I'm worried this is going to be me.... Anyone else have an early miscarriage like this? How long should I expect this to continue?
And.... how do you get past this?
