It can take a while to naturally let go of an embryo that has faded.  I'm sorry to say, if two ultrasounds have said no heartbeat, they are probably right.  The only chance you have is if you are not really 8 weeks 3 days, but it sounds like you are sure.  I'm very sorry, it does sound like a miscarriage.

it depends on ur ovulation cycle  u might not be as far along as u or the docs think! i don't want to give you false hope but i am now 33weeks along with my second child and when i first found out with this one i went for an ultra sound and it said i was only 4weeks when acording to my last period i would have been farther and they couldn't see the baby at all just a empty sac no heart beat! they sent me back a week or so later and the samething nothing an empty sac but the sac had grown 2wks .they sent me back 2wks later the samething empty but it had grown! then finally at 8wks they did an internal ultra sound which is suggested for early pregnancy anyway they saw the baby and the heart beat was normal! then my doctor realized that i ovulat at more then 30-35 days and not the norm 28days, but the whole time i was waiting i still had pregnancy symtoms (symptoms) like nausea and sore breast's aswell as i had them do my HCG levels and they were increassing! have they done blood work to check ur levels ? that is the best way to know if they can't see! good luck and keep us posted on ur progress....  days
