Waiting to miscarry

I'm just wanting someone to talk to about this difficult time. I found out I was pregnant early December and because we had been trying I knew to the date how may weeks I was. I had some cramping so to be on the safe side I went to the docs. To rule out eptopic pregnancy that advised me to have a scan at 7 weeks. So at 7 weeks I had a scan (this was the Friday before Christmas) and they told me the scan was showing I was about 5 weeks pregnant. They explained that it maybe that I had ovulated later on in the month or it could be that it had stop growing at 5 weeks. I was told to come back after Christmas (today) for a scan. During the 2 weeks I had some cramping and brown discharge. When I went for the scan today they saw no heartbeat and no growth from 2 weeks ago. According to their calculations I should be 7 weeks. I was given 3 options and decided to let nature take its course. They said there is a small chance things would be ok but it is very unlikely. I still feel pregnant, feeling really sad!

I don't think you will never bleed, but it could be a long, unpredictable wait, or on the other hand it could all happen in the next few days.
Have you considered the medical management if you want to avoid anaesthetic/surgery?

I miscarried at 7 weeks but by 16 weeks no bleeding - so I had down the surgical route. I promise it really is nowhere near as bad as you imagine. If I have another mc this time there is no doubt I will have an ERPC again.
