My miscarriage bleeding has always lasted one to two weeks. It should taper off so the last week might just be spotting or a bit more than that. But it depends on the person and the pregnancy. Some can bleed for longer, some less. If you're worried about the amount of blood or the length of time that you're bleeding, go see your dr...there could be some retained tissue or other complication. I'm so sorry for your loss!

I'm so sorry for your loss. I had a natural miscarriage at 6+3 and my baby passed in the first day of bleeding ( confirmed by ultrasound) and the I bled for another 4 days, followed by a day of spotting.

thanks girls! I have a Dr's appt. tomorrow. we'll see if it's all gone, or I may have to have a d/c...which I really don't want.
