Blackholes - sorry to hear you are going through this. Do read the thread on here on practicalities of MC, it has helped me a lot.
And you can get signed off work for a couple of weeks - you need time to recover physically afterwards, chocolate and the sofa were my friends for a good 4-5 days just before Christmas.
Hope you are seen quickly tomorrow and that everything has been passed (meant in the best of intentions so that you can get on with recovering)

I'm sorry blackholes it's a horrible thing to go through. My advice for dealing with EPAU is to go very early if it's a first come, first served arrangement rather than a timed appointment because waiting in a corridor with lots of anxious people is horrible. I hope you are seen quickly and they are nice to you.

Thank you so much. I feel like I've joined a club I didn't ever want to join, if that makes sense? I just never could have imagined what this would feel like, until going through it myself. Warmest wishes to all of you on here xx

So sorry to hear of your loss: and it is a loss, and a shock, isn't it? Do go to your appointment, as earlier posters said, it's important to make sure you have passed everything (sorry, it feels very heartless typing that).
I had a miscarriage at 11 weeks 2 years ago, had trip to EPU for same reason. Am sending my sympathies - and look after yourself xxx

Thank you both xxx I have an appointment tomorrow morning, just to be 100% sure all is ok in there. I passed the sac this afternoon though (wasn't expecting it to look like that after only six weeks; sobbed and felt really sick at the thought of the whole thing) but feel like I can move on now. Thank you again flowers

Please don't apologise, losing the prospect of a much longed for child hurts at any stage. I would go and get checked out, though I know it feels pointless - does your gp surgery have an out of hours number you could call? Sympathies and wishing you all the best.

So sorry to hear what is happening to you.
yes i would still go as you may not have passed everything & they will want to keep an eye on this & scan you.,...they will also want to test your hcg levels. But maybe I would wait untill tomorrow unless you are losing alot of blood.
It may still not be a miscarriage..many women go through this & its not actually a miscarriage...so its important you go hunny.

Thinking of you xxxxxxxx

l am/was only six weeks but I know I've lost the baby (cramps, brown mucousy discharge, one or two clots). Just wondering if there's any point going to the EPAU for an internal scan when I know the pregnancy has ended? Feel very sad but also kind of numb. Is this because I'm so early on? Or will it hit me st a later date? Sorry to go on here as I know others have worse problems than me :-(
