Confused - early mc or endometriosis?

I have no idea if this is the right place to post this so apologies if it's not. I just don't know what to do, how to feel, what to say.

I've been on the mini pill for years, stopping briefly when I fell unexpectedly pg with DS (now almost 5). My last period was March, lasted three weeks and was what I would class as heavy (for me). This period(?) is now also reaching the three week point but it's been so, so much heavier - multiple palm-sized clots per day, 8/9 pad changes per day, a "gush" (sorry, tmi) when I stand up, etc. but I've also had days where it's been very light and thought it was ending.

I went to my GP in the first week as I was worried, due to the huge loss of blood, that I was anemic. He booked me in for a blood test (which I had to wait until this morning for).

I was speaking to my friend yesterday about it and she said she'd had very similar symptoms when she had an early mc. I've had pain but put it down to period pain / cramps. I mentioned this to the nurse this morning who told me that it could be an early mc but if so I'd just have to "ride it out anyway". She also mentioned it could endometriosis. They've put my bloods through urgently and now I'm waiting for a call back from the GP who specialises in gynae. I just don't know what to do now, or how to feel, whether to be worried. Should I do a test? sad

Has anyone else experienced this please?
