Hi so it's been a roller coaster of a week! Tuesday I found out I was pregnant and because I am at risk of ectopic pregnancy they got me straight in Wednesday for a scan. They couldn't find anything in my uterus although the lining was thickening which was an indication of pregnancy and that if i was really early on they weren't forced to be able to see anything yet.they did say they found a cyst type thing which made them suspicious so I had blood tests which came back ok. Friday I went back for more blood tests and they told me my levels had dropped so they couldn't tell me whether I had had an ectopic pregnancy or not but either way was miscarrying. This is all so strange as I have had no pains at all and only a very small amount of spotting. I go back for more bloods next week to check my levels are ok but none of it seems real. I don't actually feel that I have miscarried. Has anyone else had a similar situation? I would of been about 5 weeks.

Oh dear, I'm sorry this has happened to you.
It can take a while for hormone levels to drop to the point that your body realises it is not pregnant and for bleeding to start. I had blood tests after drug treatment for an ectopic, and I remember my levels were falling, but not low enough for me to start bleeding for several days.

Oh right you see they told me I would have bleeding and bad pains for about 10 days so it's all so surreal when there is nothing at all. Sorry to hear of your loss aswell flowers
