Regular expression - count newline characters

I have a requirement to count the number of newline characters in a varchar2 field in Oracle.
The catch is if the line starts with characters 'SS' it should be ignored in the count.
This is a test for SS not included so ignore
should return the count as 3
Is there a way to do this using regular expression ?
It is sorta covered in the
