I need some urgent advice please. On the 12th of November I miscarried naturally at approximately 6 weeks. My HCG fell back down and I had negative tests immediately.
Fast forward 10 weeks later and yesterday I woke up with what I thought was the start of my first period since the miscarriage. I thought it would just be like my normal period, a bit of cramping here and there but nothing much else. Well throughout the day I notice the pain is making me unable to stand for longer than a few minutes, I want to faint, painkillers are barely touching the pain. Worse pain than the miscarriage itself, sort of like early labour pains. All day I lay in bed and the cramping takes my breath away. Theres moments of relief and then the cramps start again and I am breathing through them like labour.
I battle through just thinking that your first period after MC is supposed to be heavier and painful so all night last night I barely slept through painful cramps. Literally moaning in pain.
This morning the pain intensifies. I am starting to panic because I know this isn't right. I cant manage the pain and the cramping is intense. I feel like I am in labour. I am just about to phone my partner to come home to take me to the hospital when I feel a big mass come out of me (sorry TMI) followed by a big gush of blood. The relief was almost instant.
What I find has me shocked and confused. A quite big sac with a tiny embryo or fetus inside attached to a placenta. *tears* VERY confronting 10 weeks later.
Would this be the same pregnancy? Have I been carrying around a dead baby inside of me for 10 weeks?
I am just so confused and honestly scared that I've been had this inside of me for 10 weeks risking infection for me. My Dr never offered me a scan to check if all of the contents of the miscarriage had passed, just bloods that showed no HCG left.
What is going on?? Its not normal to pass this 10 weeks later surely? Or is this a new pregnancy I've miscarried?
About to book the dr but I need some advice please I am so freaked about it.
I took photos but don't think they are appropriate to post. Too full on.
Thank you xx
