A dilation and curettage.
The cervix is dilated and the uterine lining is scraped and removed. It's how they would have performed your surgical termination. It's also used to remove product of conception when a miscarriage occurs.

Sorry, a dilation and curettage. In the sad event that you did happen to have a missed miscarriage (and this is ALL 'what if's') I think it is a very similar procedure to a termination. Although I dare say you would not be up for the same expenses as a termination.
It probably wasn't highly appropriate for me to say that, because I want you coming here to be more positive, but I just thought that I should mention it IN CASE.
@brimm your dates for positive pregnancy test and conception are about 4 days ahead of me and I'm just shy of 6 weeks pregnant so it doesn't seem to make sense that the scan only showed you being 4+2...
Have you had any bloods to see if your hcg is rising?
Pregnant for the first-time?
