Can anyone help re: pain?

Firstly apologies if this is the wrong place to put this. Can ask for it to be moved if in the wrong place.
Am pretty sure I am having a miscarriage. Had a scan at EPU on Sun after starting to bleed and have been bleeding consistently since. I can't go back to EPU until a week has passed (as only 5-6 weeks and they couldn't see much) so am currently in limbo.
I just wanted advice on if this is going to hurt or not. So far I am just bleeding without cramping and haven't 'passed' lots of material which I guess means the miscarriage is incomplete? Although it would be quite early.
Am hoping when I go back they will offer surgery as am terrified that the bleeding will escalate to a horror show when I am at work or something.

Ive had three, and each one has been different. It won’t necessarily be a ‘horror show’, you may just have what seems like a heavy period. Just make sure you have pads, and painkillers incase you need them.

Everyone is different of course but co codamol helped somewhat.
I’ve heard people describe it as a “heavy period” for me it wasn’t.
Just take it as it comes, stay near a loo, have the pain killers on standby and don’t be afraid to ask for help if you feel it’s unmanageable.
