How Long Does It Take To Recover From Miscarriage

I had a miscarriage a week ago, and my body still feels pregnant. The blood test showed my hcg levels to be at 8, but I haven't tested since. So if there is still hcg in my system would that make it harder to recover? Also, I never really bled that much. I am still bloated/sticking out in front, I am still nauseated, still constapated, and basically still feel pregnant. Is this normal?

I forgot to add that this is my 2nd mc. With my 1st one, I bounced back almost immediately. My levels went to zero fast. Which makes this one even more strange.

How pregnant were you when you lost this baby?

 

michelle - October 25

5 weeks both times.

Okay. I think you will physically recover very quickly. It will take a week or two and you will feel normal again. I hope you are okay emotionally. This happened to me twice in a row but I am succesfully pregnant for the third time. Please, try to be positive. I know it is hard. I was emotionally a wreck for about 2 weeks both times.

Yeah, I am a wreck. I cry all the time. I even find myself crying at work. Luckily I can close my office door and nobody sees me. Congrats on the successfull pregnancy. How long did you wait to try again? I didn't wait at all after my 1st mc, I think that's why I had the second. My doc told me 2-3 months this time. But it sure is hard to be patient when I ache for a baby.

We got pregnant ~ every 4 months. We waited the full cycle after each miss but did not concieve right away. I know your pain sweety and I will say to you what everyone said to me, although I did not believe them and I don't blame you if you do not believe me. Your chance of having a succesful pregnancy is still extremely high. I have my fingers crossed for you:)

E, thank you so much for being so helpful and kind. I do believe you about the chances still being high. I know I need patience. It's not my strong suit, but I know I need to work on it. Again, thank you for being someone I can talk to. Sometimes it's hard to talk to friends who have never experienced something like this.

i am sorry to hear about your loss i myself had a miscarriage at 17 weeks in june and it took me about a 2 weeks to recover you know no more bleeding but it took me about a month and a half to stop feeling pregnant its hard to walk around still having all those feelings inside of you. and at the same time feel so empty inside

well, I went to the doc yesterday to get a quant hcg drawn. It showed my levels to be down to 1, so it has still been in my system all this time. At least I know why I have still felt this way all week. Also, now I know it is leaving my system. Although that sense of loss is still there, now I know why I've felt this way all week, and I can stop questioning reality and wondering if maybe I was still pregnant somehow. Thanks ladies!

I had a misscarriage in december it took about 2-3 months for my body to recover but i still havent recovered emotionally. As long as you can stay stong and think about the other children that you can have and not the one that you lost you should be fine

i was 17 weeks to strange how we were past the anger stage and still lost our babys

It has been over 2 weeks now, and I think the hcg is gone, because my stomach isn't bloated anymore, and I'm not quite the hormonal b___h (lol) that I was. I still haven't ovulated, though. I'm going to let a few cycles go by until we try again. Susan, are you pregnant again? If so, how long did you wait? And how long did it take you to ovulate? After my first mc, I ovulated in 2-3 weeks, got pregnant, and then had the 2nd mc. So I don't think I waited long enough. I know I need to wait this time, but I'm so anxious and impatient! About the emotional pain, I am still struggling. However, I do already have 2 sons that I am so thankful for. So that gives me some comfort. But it doesn't change the fact that experiencing mc leaves a void inside. Know what I mean?
