I'm sorry your having to go through this, I had a similar experience last year, at 7w I had an ultrasound and told I most likely had a blighted ovum but to wait 2 weeks to see if there was any change, unfortunately there was no change so I opted for a d&c as my body had not recognised what was going on.
If you want to and your given the option to wait a week and have another scan it could be worth it. There's no guarantee that waiting a week will show any change but I know I'm glad I waited.
If you have any questions or want to chat I'm happy to help.

I'm so sorry love. I went through the same thing in November of 2011. It's awful I know. I suggest weighing your options. I would consider waiting a week maybe two before you opt for removal. Your dates could be off or something and miracles happen everyday. I found out at 8 weeks, opted for a d&c at 10 weeks. I'm now pregnant again, they said I'd lose this one to, that my egg wasn't developing but guess what I'm 30+4 with a healthy baby boy! So stay strong love, you're in my prayers!

I'm very sorry it is an emotional thing hard to go thru. SUPPOSEDLY one in four pregnancies end in miscarriage, my point by that is most of us have been thru or go through a lose we sympathize and understand how you are feeling.  Also Id like to say,  things DO happen every day I agree. With Brandonlee.  Your dates could be off.  Maybe just to early to see. It took a bit for them to servant hear this babies heart im 37.5.  So id WAIT a bit before jumping into a d& c and maybe a miracle will be there for u :)  good luck
