Even if the baby was measuring only 8 weeks instead of 12 there should have been a heart rate visible. Also, the baby should have progressed more since babies dont start developing at their own rate until 13 weeks. It sounds to me like a missed miscarriage. I had one during my first pregnancy where I was supposed to be 9 weeks but the baby only measured 6 weeks, For whatever reason my body didnt miscarry on its own and I had to have a D&C. I would maybe contact your doctor to see if you can get another ultrasound to be sure but it doesn't sound good. I'm so sorry you are going through this.

Yea I have to call her tomorrow she is scheduling me another vaginal ultrasound to confirm and about the d&c did it hurt or what should I expect because she is scheduling that next did you lose some of your symptoms???

They put you under for the D&C so it doesn't really hurt, you just have some discomfort and bleeding for a week or so afterwords. Your doctor should prescribe you some type of pain killer as well.  I didn't loose any of my pregnancy symptoms that I had at the time since I hadn't actually miscarried. Symptoms are caused by hcg which is the pregnancy hormone and while the fetus is still in you, you'll still continue to have mild symptoms.
