I was very shocked this morning to finally pass the pregnancy sac from a month ago.

I "miscarried" at 7w3d, 4 weeks ago. Heavy bleeding and clots for 5 days and scan a week later showed my uterine lining was of normal non-pregnant size and that uterus looked normal.........

I have had no bleeding since, on top of that all signs indicated that I actually ovulated again 12 days ago,(despite still having hcg in my system) I was waiting for my af to arrive.

Last night got stomach cramps and a spot of light red bleeding, cramps got worse (managed with just hot water bottle), then this morning no more bleeding but passed the pregnancy sac. I am amazed that it hung on for so long.

Obviously my non-rational emotional reaction was oh help, I stopped all my medications and the scan could have been wrong and..... you know how the brain goes.

But rationally I had been baffled by the fact that my hcg levels had been declining until last week when they plateaued and stayed at a light level. I had wondered if I had some slight retained products and guessed it would pass with my next af. I had no idea that today would bring the pregnancy to an end four weeks after it supposedly had.

I normally do spot the sac when I pass it, and had just assumed that either I had missed it amongst some of the clots this time, or that I was reabsorbing it like one of my previous pregnancies. It was a huge shock to pass the sac today (and with so little bleeding, it feels wierd)

Since this morning I have had very slight brown spotting, but only on wiping, so not even any sign of my period arriving.

Anyway if you have managed to read this far, I do actually have a question to ask - how many days after passing the sac (considering I lost all the lining weeks ago) do you think I will finally get a negative test? I just need to emotionally for this pregnancy to be finished totally!

Thank you for your kind reply. I finally got a negative test today and my period is starting too, so I am relieved that it is over.
