I had a miscarriage at 6 1/2 weeks, had a D&C about three weeks ago. Yesterday I started LIGHTLY spotting, I mean one tiny spot a day, don't even need a light day pad or anything. Anyways, I was wondering if this is normal? I don't know if it is my period trying to start or what?? It's very confusing. I'm also having very light cramping with it. Does this sound like my period is trying to kickstart or what? This was my first miscarriage, so this is all new to me. Thanks for any advice. :D

Carisa,

I had a m/c back in November at 7 weeks (Had an US @ 9 weeks, baby was only measuring 7). I had a D&E done, and I bled (lightly) for 2 weeks (which Doc said I would do). Got my period about 2 weeks after that (so almost 28 days after the D&E). All was normal. Unfortunately, I think I'm having another (will find out tomorrow at my US).

So, from what you've said, you are 3 weeks removed from your D&C. Sounds like it could be your period starting. Do you normally start like that (very light, and minimal cramping?
I usually start pretty light, but a lot more than I am now, and I have a lot more cramping usually too. I'm not sure what is going on. I also bled like you for about two weeks post D&C. So the timing would be almost right. I'm hoping it is my period, I don't want it to wait months before returning. I'd like to do another IVF in a few months. I also had a missed miscarriage. I went in for my 7 1/2 week ultrasound and my baby was measuring about a week behind. Went in one week later to check for progress and he was still measuring the same. It was terrible.

I'm sorry you are going through this again. I hope you are wrong. Hopefully your ultrasound will show proper growth. Good luck with that. :angel:

Well, the LITTLE bleeding I have had it has been a darker color. I'm thinking now that it is still leftover from the D&C. I haven't had anything today, and what I did have for two days was so light that I don't think it was anything other than leftover. Isn't it just so confusing? I can't wait to get back to normal. I'm kind of scared to have my first period because I have heard from a lot of people that it is usually pretty painful with lots of clots. Great, sounds fun. Thanks for answering my question. I guess we are all in the same boat.

Oh, and it was only about two weeks with no bleeding, so I'm sure it wasn't a period.....
