An average amount like your period. Anything more should be discussed with your dr.

A good rule of thumb is soaking a maxi pad an hour for more than three hours is a sign of too much blood loss. If it were me, after 2 soaked pads I'd be getting checked out. Please remember not to use tampons for this blood flow. Your body needs to expel matter to prevent infection.

Typically, a five week miscarriage would cause bleeding like a period.

It depends on how much blood was lost. Up to 15% blood loss can be treated by drinking 3 times as much as was lost. Between 15% and 30%, liquids should be given by IV Between 30% and 40%, liquids by IV or blood transfusion Over 40% - blood transfusion
