Hi Lads Mumma, I'm so sorry to hear & sending u heaps of hugs. Sadly I know what ur going through. We lost out little one around the same time. I went for a scan just before 8 weeks, think it may have been 7+6 & it was measuring at 6weeks & no hb. It was absolutely devastating. I had a missed miscarriage meaning my body hadn't recognized that bub had passed. My doctor had suggested a d & c as it could take my body quite a while to recognize what had happened. I was scared at the time, however I'm thankful that I did have the d & c.
Sending u lots of hugs at this difficult time & there r heaps of people that have been through this on here if u need to talk or to vent.

I'm really sorry to hear your story. I'm yet another statistic - went for a scan at 9w only to discover it was a blighted ovum and there was just an empty gestational sac.
It's unfortunately really hard to say how long it will take for your body to recognise what has happened and miscarry. In my case, I started bleeding lightly the day after the scan - almost as if my body couldn't let go until I'd acknowledged what had happened. I had a D&C a week later, because it just didn't seem to be ramping up at all and I needed it to just be over.
It's a tough time, and it can take quite some time to finally start to feel better emotionally. Two months on I feel normal most of the time, but still have moments when it hits me and I want to cry.
As they say, be kind to yourself - let yourself grieve and be sad, work through it in your own time, and don't let anyone else minimise your loss.

We had a very similar experience.
Scan at 6 weeks and a perfectly normal little bean with a strong heart beat and then another scan at nearly 10 weeks and nothing. I was so shocked and heartbroken. Hubby was at a meeting so being alone made it a million times worse. I opted for a D&C the next day which was 4 weeks ago.
Lots of strength to you - there seems to be so many people that go through this. I am just hoping that we fall again so very soon and it not only sticks but GROWS!! X

we have waited 9 days to miscarry , no real signs of that happening so I'm reluctantly having a D&C tomo. Pretty nervous. But I'm thinking about my family too/ it's hard living in this limbo. Thanks for all your replies x

had my first scan yesterday, i was 8w2d according to my LMP but scan was recording at 6w & no heartbeat :`(
i'd been trying to remain positive & hoped that my ovulation was off, (havent had ANY cramping or bleeding) but went to the dr this morning who basically told me it was over & that i should go get a d & c.
i asked if it could wait & had to actually *request* a repeat hcg.
so now im waiting for the bloods to come back & making my decision from there
as much as i take all internet anecdotal information with a grain of salt, i found so many stories of women who had no detectable heartbeat at their first scan that waited a week & there was one there. i'd hate to go through with the d & c if theres a chance little bean is still ok
after a $h!tty year losing 4 loved ones, one of whom to suicide, devastated doesnt begin to cover it
