I was only 5 weeks pregnant but found out today in a&e (went in cos of bad cramps) that I'm no longer pregnant when the nurse stuck her head in the cubicle and said "you,ll be glad to know your pregnancy test was negative," had a scan and beta hcg which confirmed that my hcg levels have fallen to 45 now my questions are: How long does it take for bleeding to start? Is it going to hurt?
I'm thinking of traveling 200 miles tomorrow to be with my family as my partner is away and I don't want to be on my own, is this a stupid idea if I could start gushing blood At any time??
Sorry bouncing what a horrible way to get that news. Since you were not very far along then there won't be a huge amount of tissue to pass, but there can sometimes be quite heavy bleeding and cramping, I don't think a long journey is a great idea. Can your family travel to be with you instead? Stock up on maxi pads, ibuprofen, chocolate, wine and tissues. You would normally start with spotting or light bleeding, rather than anything terribly sudden, but you don't want to be miscarrying in a service station somewhere.
