Pregnancy of Unknown Location - is it definately all over?

I'm hoping somebody on here might be able to help me to understand what is happening to me.
Yesterday I referred myself to the Early Pregnancy Unit at hospital because I had some brown discharge (like beginning of period - sorry if TMI) no real pain just the odd twinge.
They did an internal scan and my lining was very thick but they couldn't see anything in there - no sac, nothing. My LMP dates put me at about 7 wks 3 days but I have irregular and sometimes long cycles (33 days). The ultrasound lady broke the news to us gently -as if it was all over and we were put in a private room.
When we saw the doctor and she did an internal exam though she said that she was 90% sure it wasn't ectopic as she could see some placental tissue in the uterus lining (?)
I am off work today trying to get my head around everything - I still have no pain and some pregnancy symptoms. I have to go back tomorrow for more blood tests.

Has anyone on here experienced anything like this? Is there any chance of a happy ending? I don't know how I should be feeling sad

PS> Also ask for a scan re molar/partial molar, especially if you are Asian have any Asian blood in your family. I have but look white- jnr doc didn't think to ask, turned out I was high-risk and did have a partial molar. Don't worry too much though it's very rare and treatable

Hiya ladies in a similar situation, found out on Friday morning was preg but had more than likely mc they wanted to leave until wed to do another pregnancy test as had showed positive but would up until a week after hence appt for we'd !

I was bleeding and had strange lumpy membrane fri morn hence rushed to docs, hoped and hoped all would be fine didn't want to wait until wed ( understandably) apparently no app until then !!! Ridiculous

Tried another hosp out of area and took referral letter from the docs nurse done another test and some bloods test still positive and call later with results of blood HCG levels were 730 something booked for a further blood test Sunday so waited very stressful and torturous wait

Got call last nite bloods HCG dropped to 140 something so not ongoing pg and told to keep appt for tues for scan in meantime I don't believe this is all over - no pain bleeding still but not even a period amount sorry -TMI

I am worried the worst is to come and in meantime still have pg symptoms bad back, tender boobs and heartburn

From reading this will continue until 0 and could end in procedure if not done naturally

Is there any hope they are wrong ? I'm not sure whether grief is making me cling on to any hope in meantime trying to get my head around this all so nice to see not alone it is def a very hard time so much swirling around ur head considering the fact we had no idea all we want now is a baby life works in mysterious ways tho. Or so they say !

Hi I had a miscarriage back in may and I was also referred to the early preg unit and my pregnancy was also marked and "unknown location" I had a stomach scan and a internal and they saw nothing to do with pregnancy atall but before I was seen I let out a little clot in the toilet of the unit I was only 4 weeks, I bled for about 2 weeks and had quite some pain, but I'm now 5 weeks pregnant 2 months later but I'm taking it slow my mind is all over the place keep thinking the same things happening again, but I'm feelin confident I've gone further than before haven't told anyone yet tho not even my partner I've told him I'm late but I think he knows the deal but after last time. But if ur pregnancy is named as unknown that's it its gone how far gone r u?
