Is it even possible to have a miscarriage before you know for sure that you're pregnant? Cuz I'm pretty sure I did. Recently I'd been hopeful that my husband and I had successfully conceived. I had been feeling just a little nauseous (I never have sickness very bad when I'm pregnant), and certain foods would make it worse. I'd been having pains on both sides of my lower abdomen (as I have with every pregnancy so far), and I'd had a cople new symptoms that are unusual for me but are apparently fairly common pregnancy symptoms (dizziness/headaches, heartburn). So anyway, I was hopeful, but I was waiting until the day my period was due to test. I figured I'd get a more accurate result that way.
And then came the period. Four whole days early. That NEVER happens to me. Never. The day before I actually started bleeding, it felt like I passed some kind of tissue (I found it weird that that happened BEFORE the bleeding, but I still think it's connected). I have still continued to have a few of the previously mentioned symptoms (specifically the nasea), just like I did with my last miscarriage. I also bled about a day longer than my normal periods, just like with my last miscarriage.
I know the only way to know for sure is probably to get checked out, but I already owe the hospital tons of money for the last miscarriage and I can't really afford it right now. Besides, last time they fucked everything up and I had to be the one to straighten it all out. Not much wanting to do that again. So mostly I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this or ever heard of it happening?

Yeah, it's called a chemical pregnancy. Have you taken a test? If you were pregnant, it might still come up positive.

Face palm moment. I never thought about taking a test lol. I should try it.
Why is it called a chemical pregnancy?

If you did have a chemical there wouldn't be any tissue to pass this early.

Because the egg and sperm met and implanted and your body started releasing HCG, but nothing came of it.

I see....
By my estimate I would've been around 3 weeks. Is it possible to have any tissue to pass by then?

Sometimes we just have weird cycles. You might take a test to confirm but I wouldn't worry about it unless it continues to happen.

3 weeks since your LMP or 3 weeks since you ovulated? If you haven't missed your period yet, it's probably too early to pass tissue, because implantation typically takes 7-10 days.

Well the weird part is that whatever that was that I felt came a day before I started bleeding. So I'm really confused lol. I don't know what it would've been.

Not sure. Basically how I got that 3 week estimate was by entering my lmp into a pregnancy calendar and it came up with 3 weeks. So I'm assuming 3 weeks pregnant?

It could just be some endometrium you were holding onto for some reason. But there's no way there could be that much tissue from such an early loss. Only if it was a pregnancy that actually resulted from the previous cycle.
