Just had a question. I am currently almost 6 weeks pregnant with my first child, however I swear I miscarried in December. I was cramping horribly for about two weeks straight and then I woke up in the morning and went to the restroom and BAM, I was bleeding horribly. Sorry if tmi, but I was passing huge clots and going through a pad every 1.5 sometimes an hour. I couldn't even use a tampon, because I was bleeding so much. Anyways, I went the ER and they came back and said my pregnancy test was negative, so I couldn't have miscarried. I never thought of it until now really. Maybe it's because I am currently pregnant. I know my body and my periods and I have NEVER had one like that. January's period was barley anything, not even a flow, just old blood. Then I found out on Valentines day I was expecting Anybody ever had an experience like this?
Well if they said you weren't and had no trace of hcg and they didn't take any samples, I would have to say it probably wasn't a miscarriage. Sometimes if you are really stressed or have something more going on than usual it can cause your period to be a few days late and extremely heavy like that.
It could have been, sometimes as soon as the sac and placenta are passed HCG levels drop so dramatically they don't show up on a test. When I had a MMC a few years ago the next morning after most of the pregnancy had passed out of me, including the sac and placenta, a pregnancy test was completely negative. 24 hours earlier it had been a strong positive. When they scanned me they said there was still a tiny bit of tissue there but it was only mm's big, but still just goes to show that once certain tissue is out a pregnancy test can show up as a complete negative. Many years ago when I first married my first husband I had a very heavy period with huge clots of tissue (not blood but greyish firm tissue) and it was many weeks late as well but my ex dismissed it and said if it was a miscarriage then the fetus would come out recognisable and whole, it was only when I had the MMC that I knew for sure that what happened then was a MC and my ex was wrong. My ex didn't let me take a test as we were short of money and internet cheapies were not around then. Sometimes you can never know for sure though. xx
