I had a missed miscarriage at 9 weeks and then a d&c at 11 weeks when i found out about the miscarriage. 4 days after the d&c my period started and it lasted for 7 days. For the most part it was a normal period except one night I had terrible terrible cramps and chunks/clots of blood were coming out.
But after my period ended I though great that's done.. but no.
A day after my period stopped I had the tiniest little bit of brown spotting/discharge. It's now been another 4 days and the brown discharge isn't going away. It's increasing! Has anyone else had this brown discharge?? It's very dark brown with some sticky stuff in it (sorry tmi). I'm really worried!

I'm so sorry for your loss. It is such a scary and devastating thing to have to go through, I know. I've lost several babies, and the brown spotting is usually a sign of old blood that just needs to come out so you don't end up with an infection. If you start to notice a foul smell or run a fever or anything else that causes you concern, then make sure to call your dr just to be sure. I pray God's strength and comfort for you as you heal. God bless.

I ended up bleeding out of nowhere two weeks after the d+c and then spotted brown....it is quite common I think so I wouldn't worry too much. So sorry for your loss.
