What causes bloating and excess loss of stool after miscarriage?

I had a late miscarriage 8 weeks ago (21 weeks gestation). My first period was 4.5 weeks after birth and in the past 3 weeks I have become more bloated then I was before. It seems to get worse at night and is getting worse with time. My stomach is very bubbly, with lose and urgent stools every morning (up to 4 times). Is there anything I should worry about or indeed anything I can do to help it?

Hello,

Your symptoms are suggestive of possible viral gastroenteritis.
Stay hydrated. Follow BRAT (Banana, Rice, Apple, and Toast) diet until the acute symptoms subside.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I had been in the hospital for a week and had a miscarriage at 10 weeks. I had a d/c last Wednesday and I am extremely bloated. I weighed 114lbs when I went into the hospital and now I weigh 144lbs. Will this last long? How can I get rid of it? I have been walking a lot.

Hi, I recently fell pregnant - 5 weeks. I went for an internal scan as I was spotting brown discharge and mild cramps. The sac was lower in the womb than expected and I was told this was due to a possible miscarriage. I now have to wait 2 weeks for another scan to see if there has been any change. I have since the scan, spotted red clots and the brown stuff seems to be getting worse but have no pains. Do you think I am definitely going to loose my baby?
