I went to a&e due to bleeding at ten weeks. After a few tests I was sent home to have a scan the next day. During the scan they said my baby had only been growing for 6 weeks and had no heartbeat. Im now at home waiting to miscarry, feeling devastated and scared.

I'm sorry for your loss flowers

It's devastatingly sad and cruel.

I am going through a missed miscarriage at the moment. Do you have any support in RL?

I had my 12 week scan last week to discover the baby had died around 8 weeks. This is now my 4th mc. I'm going in for an ERPC tomorrow as I thought my body has hung onto this pregnancy for 5 weeks and no sign of it happening naturally.
Miscarriage is so awful and unfair. I hope you recover quickly and have someone to look after you xx

I've got my husband and family for support. We had been trying for a baby for 2 years and had just started fertility testing when I found out that I was pregnant. Part of me wants the miscarriage to start so that we can try to move on but I'm also dreading losing our baby.
Thanks for your comments and I'm so sorry that you're going through this too xx

It's good you have support from your family.

The miscarriage will be tough. Be kind to yourself and allow yourself time to grieve, and for your body to recover. You will know when it's time to move on and try again.

I think I'm coming to the end of my miscarriage, I feel weirdly calm. It's hard to explain. Everyone reacts differently I suppose, but as long as you rest, listen to your body and of course take advice from the hospital/GP, you will come through this.

Be strong bjb
