Period after miscarriage


I started miscarrying September 16th and stopped after about a week and a half of bleeding. That was my third miscarriage and I’m not looking to get pregnant for awhile because I need a break. My dr still agreed to do some bloodwork once I get my cycle back so we can try to figure out why I keep losing babies. It’s only been 3 weeks and I started spotting yesterday. Along with a couple small twinges (I guess cramps) in my lower stomach. After spotting those couple times I’ve went back to not bleeding. I’m confused….. do I count that as my period?
