My last period was May 29th, which makes me 8 wks pregnant, I'm spotting since saturday a light brown color, I went to the dr on Tuesday July 22 and did a u/s you could see the fetus, but the doctor says there is no heartbeat.  

He said to wait that I would eventually miscarriage sometime in the next couple of days. I don't know what to believe, I don't have any cramping only once in a while a little pain. This is my second miscarriage in one year.

I have an appoitment on July 31st, he said if I didn't miscarriage by this day, he will give me something that will make me miscarriage in 24 hrs.

My hubby and I are very upset but optimistic that maybe since I was only 7 weeks the heartbeat will be found in my 8 or 9 week


I don't know if I should tell him that I want another u/s.

Please help me.

I'm sorry for anyone who has to hear such bad news.  As I understand it (I'm not a Dr.) you should see fetal heartbeat no later than 6 wks. Are you absolutely sure you're 8 wks?  (I was 2 1/2 weeks off when I found out myself).  Don't lose heart dear, the strength in our hearts is our most valuable asset.  Take some time to relax and get comfortable, trust that God will be there for you no matter what.

Definitly ask for another u/s before any d&c or pill is carried out. Doctors have been wrong. I hope everything works out.

Very good desicion,and if he refuses find another doctor. He should have no problem with checking once again to avoid a terrible missdiagnosis (if that is the case)...Good luck.

Hi Guys:
Today is Monday and nothing yet no miscarriage and still have morning sickness, heartburn and very tired.  I don't understand what is going on, but I'm calling my doctor tomorrow to request another u/s.  Just to make sure what he told me first is correct. Then will take it from there.

Thanks for your responses, I will keep you posted.

Hi everyone, I was at the doctors today, they did another u/s, and there was no heartbeat.  So tomorrow I'm going for a prostin termination. Is something they put inside your vagina and I will abort within 24 hrs.  My doctor told me I could have a d&c or this prosting termination.  I don't know which one to do.  Everyone has there own opinion....

Please advise, I'm desperate.
thanks

Is me Bel...It's Sunday and I miscarriage on Friday night. I did the prostin termination, it was not painful the pains came later it was like I was giving birth.....

Today I feel ok, little cramping here and there. I was able to get all the tissue in a bottle they gave me at the hospital, so they can studied and hopefully find out what is wrong.

Thanks everyone for your comments, I will keep you posted on what is going on....
