M/C at 10w - no evidence of pregnancy at all

I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this as it was a big shock to me and has made me feel quite confused and unsure how I feel. I found out I was pregnant in March, and was having standard 1st trimester symptoms that seemed the same as with my DS, my only other pregnancy - exhaustion, bloating, nausea, sore boobs etc. This time last week I suddenly started to feel better and was a little concerned but tried to reassure myself that I had hit 10wks and that many women see their symptoms clear up a bit at that point.

Sadly I started spotting on Friday and bleeding heavily on Saturday. At the EPU when they scanned me they were surprised to find literally no evidence of a pregnancy in my womb. I had only been bleeding heavily for about half an hour at that point and definitely hadn't passed anything significant. All they could see was blood and they said my womb was not particularly thick. They said they could not say for sure but they would assume the pregnancy never got past a very early stage.

I just felt so shocked that I would have symptoms up to 10 weeks with nothing even happening in there. Has anyone else ever had something similar? I feel very sad about it all but just so confused.

Could it of been a chemical pregnancy?

I lost my first at 11.5 weeks. I was booked in for my scan the following week and getting myself all excited. I had nausea early on and then one day I started feeling fine. I was a little worried but reassured by other people saying it would just suddenly stop.
I had a little spotting on the Wed night and was booked in at EPU for the Friday. It was dark brown blood which I'm led to believe is old blood - a good sign.
I woke up early Friday morning with period cramps (I suffer from very painful cramping and it was like that). I sent my DH to work and stayed in bed. I wasn't sure what was happening but I had a lot of pain and a headache. It got bad very quickly and blood was pouring out of me.
DH text before lunch to ask how I was and I told him I thought I was loosing the baby (my doctors were awful and said there was nothing that could be done and it was up to me if I wanted to visit the EPU to see if there was a baby left!). He rushed back from work and made me get up so we could go A & E as the blood loss just wouldn't stop. I stood up and collapsed so he phoned NHS Direct who sent a first responder. He was worried about my blood pressure so called an ambulance.
Everyone I met along the way was very sweet but I think we all knew what was happening. I couldn't go to the EPU until the next day and when they checked, there was nothing there. I was told the baby had probably died weeks ago. It was heartbreaking and has made me cry on the odd occasion since.
I should imagine you will have further bleeding and then it's done. I was told to wait 2-3 weeks and take a test and it should come back negative (until then the hormone is still in your body so will show a positive). It's then ok to try again. At the time I couldn't think about that but I missed being pregnant and kept rubbing my belly and remembering there was nothing there.
A month and a half later and I fell pregnant again. Sort of a shock (although we weren't using anything) and it was our first time of having sex since.
I'm now 32 weeks and he's kicking away nicely. It's the most horrendous experience I've been through but I'm trying not to let that ruin what I've now got.
thanks thinking of you through this horrible time.

i miscarried 1 week ago at 10 weeks 1 day
i started bleeding at home and having strong like pains and knew something was wrong and by the time i got seen which was only after a few hours most of the "foetal tissue had passed"
i then got sent home to let the rest of nature take its cause
ive only had one large bit of tissue pass, the rest has just been small bits of clots i guess
i thought id see a lot more but i guess not

sorry for your loss, its a horrible thing to go through, ive never known heartbreak like it sad x

Sounds like you had a similar experience to me LifeBeginsNow. I have been told to do a test in two weeks and that by that time it should be negative. Have wondered too if it was chemical, Bamboo. It seemed so strange! So sorry for your loss too, Nugget. I hope you're doing ok.

I do keep getting a bit tearful but am doing ok considering what happened, I think.
