what to expect after a miscarriage?
I found out i was pregnant 2 weeks ago, took 5 digital clear blue tests at different times over a 2 day period. all came back positive at 1-2 weeks, so doctors would say 3-4 it was not planned but i was still over joyed i have wanted to be a mummy since i was 7 years old, 5 days later i began to bleed, i called my gp who assured me it was just implantation bleeding as i was not experiencing any pain, but said she will book me an appointment for 2 days later. my bleeding had become much heavier by then and i was passing clots, one in particular was a small purplish ball which i susspect was my baby. anyway i had to wait for almost 3 hours on the day of my appointment to be seen, as i arrived earlier than i should and was told i would be seen in 15 minutes for an emergancy appointment, 2 and a half hours past and i decided to nip to the chemist next door and buy another test, to see if it could put my mind at ease while i waited, i was absolutly devastated when it read not pregnant. my gp was useless, she gave me no advice, im just 19 and had never experienced pregnancy before then never mind a miscarriage, all she said was i can try another test in the morning but she doubts it would be positive and ushered me out of the door. this was 4 days ago, i used a tampon when i got home, not wanting to be constantly reminded of what had happened, by using sanitary towels, i had no idea this was a no no after a miscarriage, my gp hadn't gave me and symptoms of infection to look out for, she did not refer me for a scan to see if i had a complete miscarriage or not.
This has been quite traumatic for me, even though i was only pregnant for such a short amount of time the impact it has left on me is unreal, i can't even begin to think what some of the women who have had later miscarriages must of gone through.
I have experienced on and off headaches this past few days, and have felt quite nauseous particularly at night, whereas when i was pregnant i only felt naususeous as soon as i woke up. i am still bleeding, not as heavy now, it more like the end of a period, my lower back hurts but its copable.
I was just wondering if anyone can tell me some of the symptoms i should look out for and what i can expect over the coming month?
