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.

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.
