It might take a few days to a week or two, but I would go ahead and make an appointment with your doctor.



I am sorry for your loss.

You should see your doctor. You will need an ultrasound to confirm that it was just chemical and that there is nothing there. If you don't completely miscarry then you'll need a d & c.

almost 1 mo after confirming with U/S we m/c I ended up having a D&C. Both times i have m/c ended up with d&c. I just wasn't passing on my own.



Hugs and best of luck to you. If I were you I'd make an appointment so they can follow your progress at least.

There is nothing to see on ultrasound with a chemical pregnancy; that's actually what defines it as chemical. ETA I reread what you wrote and I think that's actually what you're saying, lol. My bad.



OP with a chemical pregnancy your period should start about a week or two later than it was supposed to, not long after you start getting negative HPTs, and it should be almost like a normal period. Sorry. :(

That's why I said she probably needed one to confirm that it is in fact a chemical pregnancy.

Quoting ℳizz ℊiz. :" i had a D&C with my last miscarriage. i was farther along. but i read that all chemical pregnancies expel themselves on their own since it's pretty much around the time of your period."


A true chemical pregnancy will but what I think she's saying is if it's possible that you could have been further than 4 weeks (or not actually chemical) an ultrasound could confirm that it was in fact chemical and there is no danger of failing to expel all the tissue. I've never had an ultrasound to follow up any of my miscarriages though. As long as your HPTs become negative you should be fine.

Yeah I reread it and realized what you were saying. I edited my post to reflect that. :)

Quoting ℳizz ℊiz. :" thanks, that's what i thought. i remember reading that nothing will even show on an U/S. and thank ... [snip!] ... make myself believe it was just a "late period". and we can just try again after. i'm just glad we didn't really tell anyone."


Yeah my chemical was much, much easier to deal with than any of my other miscarriages. I really don't consider it even to be a miscarriage because I knew it wasn't viable before I even knew I was pregnant. That's just me though. I was just ready to get going and try again.
