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 hmm 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??

Thanks in advance x

Really sorry for your loss. I'm afraid I don't have any advice but didn't want to read an run. Thinking of you.

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.

I'm very sorry to hear about your loss. I think you do need to ask your family to come to where you are - I think you'll probably need the comforts of home as you go through this.

Oh gosh, how difficult. I'm not sure being there with them would be ideal either, unfortunately. Can your partner not come back under the circumstances?
