Hi ladies,

My miscarriage bleeding end on 3/12. But now I start bleeding again, is it normal?
Coz frm what I know my period will only come in 4 weeks later right?
Hi Crystal,

From what I know your period is supposed to return 4-6 weeks from the day you miscarry. Is this period a full period? Because what happened to me was my period return 5 weeks later but when I thought it finished, I bled again 3 days later. Turns out there was a piece of pregnancy tissue stuck inside that didn't get cleaned out completely during the D&E and I had to go in for day surgery and scope to clear out everything. My stupid stubborn body. So just check with your doc and have a scan to make sure.

Hi Crystal,

Yes, please go back to your doctor to have a scan just to make sure that you passed all pregnancy tissues.

Sorry for the sensitive question, but how far along when you miscarried?

Hi Crystal8989,

If you are really worried, consider getting an earlier appointment than Friday perhaps.

hi babe,

i think its fairly normal, but just go and check on friday with ur gynae to make sure all tissues are passed out. if not gynae will suggest to do a D&C. some ppl after D&C totally no more bleeding. I bled for close to 3 weeks after. So it really depends on individual body.

Hi,

The bleeding stop on tuesday. Today Doc told me that still some blood inside and she say is ok. Just let is pass out naturally. But if continue to bleed for 2 more weeks, i have to go back and see her again. She told me that i can ttc again after one cycle menses. I wonder is it safe?

Hi Crystal8989,

It depends on your gynae, I think. The more conservative ones will suggest you ttc again after a wait of 3 to 6 months. The not so conservative one may say that 1 month is okay though.

yup agree, i actually belongs to the non conservative type. easier to get pregnant after mc. but whether u can emotionally managed the lost and having pregnant again is another question.

Hi all,

I had a miscarriage, induced and d&c at week 25. I was told that baby stopped growing shortly after the detailed scan at week 21.. Dr could not explain why this is happening till further tests is conducted.
I was told that the tests will cost abt $300 plus, however the nurse is unable to show me the list of tests that will be done. When I ring up another clinic, I was told its $45. Would anyone of you be able to share what are the essential tests that shd be done?

Thank you.

Hi Corals,

So sorry to hear that you lost your pregnancy so late in the term, almost half way through. Umm, maybe ask your Dr what tests you should do. If you really want to check, perhaps ask yourself and your husband to do the karyotyping test (that is to check if the both of you have the correct 23 sets of chromosomes). However, be warned that this test is not cheap. If done in KK, it is at least $500 plus per person, so $1,000 plus for the both of you. :(

Hi,

Thanks for replying.. My husband and I did the panorama antenatal test while I was at 11week. Results were low risk for all.. was told baby was at pink of health. we paid $1700 for it. Sigh.. During the detailed scan, Gynae told me that the umbilical cord has only single artery and he mentioned there nothing to worry as the baby has two kidneys and I did the antenatal test.
Thinking of changing to a Gynae with high risk pregnancy experience. Been researching quite a bit and thought of consulting Prof Biswas for the series of tests.. I also want to do a Pap smear to rule out any woman problem.

yeah Prof biswas is expert in that area. I have not seen him personally because his appointments are always full. Wanted to consult him in last pregnancy, but i decided to go with Dr Anita a more junior high risk gynae compared to Prof Biswas, but still able to assure me and help me carry baby to term.

If you want to see him, i suggest you book him now, his schedule is always pack.

Hi,
Thanks so much for advising. Just arranged the appt with Dr. Biswas. Earliest appt is 29 Jan.
 
Yes Prof Biswas is very reassuring, he saw me for my recent detailed scan. I'm with NUH subsidised clinic but was told that every detail scan they'll consult Prof before releasing me back to the clinic.

If you're under high risk group, even under subsidised, you'll see a fixed panel of doctors who specialises in high risk pregnancy. Dr Anita is also very good. She's one of the usual doctors that I see.

Thanks girl. I am not sure if I am categorized under high risk group. I will probably see Prof first on 29 Dec and seek his advise on my previous miscarriage. When things are more settle, I may followed up under subsidized clinic.

Good to know that there are a panel of specialized doctors for high risk pregnancy :)

Not sure if downgrade to subsidised is allowed. I had a history with NUH recurrent loss clinic plus my advanced maternal age makes me fall under high risk group naturally. The doctors are all very reassuring and never pressurised me to switch to private suite (which most will do so at 24 weeks) as they also agree with me on the unknown complications and potential high cost that I may possibly face which is unknown until babies are delivered. As it is, I need more sessions of consultations and detailed scans than normal.

Totally. Dr Anita is very assuring. I was also under the subsidised group. And yes I also see the fixed panel of Drs. It's like paying Sub rate for Pte dr. Once u go Pte u can't downgrade unless u can ask mp for help prove ur financial status. See volunteers etc. I only swapped to Pte on the very day I deliver so that I can request for Anita to deliver my baby. So now on, I'm a Pte patient if I have my number 2.

Thanks ladies.
Guess I will see Prof as private for now. Will see how it goes after. still a long way for me.. after all the investigations and if all things are fine, we will then tcc. I think subsidized visits will need to go through a new referral via Polyclinic.

Hi Cressymama,

Actually depends on whether your miscarriage is early stage or not. If early stage, some gynae will allow you to try for baby again after 2 months' rest.

Some more conservative ones will tell you to wait for at least 3 months.

If you are a person who believes in tcm, you can go to them to tiao your body too. If you do not have, I can recommend my one to you. Just let me know so that I can PM (private message) you.
Could u let me knw Any good tcm too?

Suffered from chemical pregnancy late last week (miscarriage on Mon), starting bleeding a lot today & had frequent fainting spell. Can't stand up too long, feeling v giddy. Is this normal? Was given 3 days MC by KKH, supposed to go back to work on Fri. But I'm still feeling weak & my throat v sore (started on Tuesday) despite resting & drinking lots of water. Is that signs of infection?

I think maybe due to bleeding too much make u giddy. As for whether infections, u might want to call kk to check?

Hi all,

I just did a D&C on Monday.

After trying for 3 yrs, I finally got preggy with my 2nd baby. But never know that this happiness is so short-lived. At 8 weeks, baby stopped growing at 6 weeks and there was no heartbeat. Going through D&C is even worse than going through labour.

Now I am doing a small confinement for myself.

By the way, I would like to check with after D&C, do we need to go back to our gynae to review? How long did you all bleed for? I am still bleeding but very little qty. This is my fourth day.

Thank you.

Blood clots.. I think that is not normal. The nurse at Mt A told me that if I have blood clots, I should call my gynae up. Maybe you should see the gynae sooner or call your gynae to ask about it.

Is this your first baby?

Coz I didn't go thru D&C, mine let it flush out naturally. Miscarriage early stage, so blood will be more than my usual menses and more clots than usual. Not my first, I had a 7yo girl. First pregnancy was smooth sailing, no issue at all. Maybe coz I was so much younger then.

Hi metamorphosis8184,

Hi pann,

Sorry to know what you are going through right now.

Take time to tiao your body, recuperate well, then try again when your body is ready.

After my d and c after my first miscarriage in Jan 2012, I remembered bleeding for 5 to 6 days. However, my AF only returned some 60 days later.

Hope that my info. helps.

Sorry about your loss. I went through the same as you. Found out on 8 weeks and baby stopped growing at 6 weeks.
I remember bleeding for less than a week. Not a lot of bleeding. I had a follow up appointment with my gynae I think 6 weeks after my d&c. I think it was the clinic which called me to arrange for the follow up after d&c.
 
Hi blackcanary,

Sorry to know what you are going through.

Do a mini-confinement, do take time to recuperate from the loss and try again when you are emotionally ready to do so.

Bleeding at 5+ weeks... Gynae says likely will miscarry and wants to do D&C... :( I'm thinking to just let it come out naturally... Seems less traumatizing

Hi debz89,

Normally if bleeding it means that your body detects that the pregnancy is not a viable one, and will likely expel the embryo out yourself. No need to do the d and c procedure.

Thank you for your kindness though.

I think best to do D&C so that the preg tissues clear out and you can ttc again after next cycle Otherwise you won't know when it will happen and might have complications middle of the night, takes weeks for it to miscarry naturally and waste time. I did a D&C and AF 5 weeks after

If there is bleeding, you might want to let it happen naturally especially since you are still early. When mine happened I chose d&c because I know there was no hope since we lost the heartbeat. At that time I felt that d&c was better as my body didn't even recognised that the fetus was gone.
But if there is a slim chance that baby can make it, I'll wait for nature to take its course since I don't want to face with the guilt.

Hi lavendercupcake,

For my miscarriage in mid-June, the Friday I was bleeding; then Sat more bleeding and after ultrasound at my previous gynae (as I am now with Prof Choolani) which confirmed that the embryo was gone 2 weeks ago, that afternoon I passed out the embryo naturally after suffering from agonizing tummy ache for 1.5 hours.

The gynae did bHCG blood test for u? Mine at 4weeks plus. KKH dr says to let it out naturally & prescribed antibiotics for me to take over 7 days to prevent infection. Now Day 4 le, I'm still bleeding but not as much as Day 2 & 3.

Yeh did blood test, and I'm supposed to go agn today for another blood test. If results show hormone levels dropped then he's alr scheduled for D&C in e afternoon... Maybe I'll try kkh agn... (But I went there when first started bleeding, doc said cannot do anything and even if bleed more no point going back so I went private gynae..)

Hugz debz89. We both conceive ard the same period. Unfortunate this happened to us.
I wasn't bleeding when I went KKH. Only spotting. But my hcg level dropping so dr conclude its gone.

Hi all,
I'm currently 9w with twins and have no bleeding/spotting yet but mild cramps.
Gynae couldnt detect both heartbeat at 7w & 8w
found fetal pole for twin 1 but stop growing at ard 6w and the other is blighted ovum.
was advised to wait for it to naturally miscarry.

wanna check if D&C is better or natural MC is better for twin?
mine is non-identical twins so its 2 separate sacs.
I'm kinda worried if only 1 comes outs the other stuck inside how?

@debz89 and @metamorphosis8184 MC has nothing to do with what you eat or did, so don't feel guilty about what happened. When I had mine, I kept wondering whether it's because I ate too much durian but my gynae assured me that it's not. The fetus probably got some chromosome defect and it's just nature way of elimination.
Actually statistics of MC during early pregnancy is quite high. Some women don't even know that they had it and probably thought it's a late period.

Did you ask the gynae why he suggest natural MC? Maybe he has a reason to suggest that. I think when natural MC happens, both sacs should come out. My gynae gave me the option to wait for it to happen naturally but she offer to prescribe medication to help the body expel out the sac since my body didn't recognise that fetus was gone. I chose d&c in the end because I don't want to wait.
