I had an internal scan 2 weeks tomorrow whic showed a very slow hb, they advised to go back in 2 weeks - tomorrow- and i was likely to ave m/c'd, however i have had no bleeding, cramping or anything, i am just trying to decide and prepare for tomorrow, should i have started bleeding by now? they were fairy certain baby wouldnt make it, and i thought i would have had some sigm of mc, any advice

I can only tell you of my experience, which I'm afraid wasn't good. At my routine 12 week scan I was told there was no heartbeat. I had had no bleeding at all - no spotting, nothing. This is termed a missed mc.

This does not mean the same thing will have happened to you and I did hesitate to post this as a reply as I don't want to panic you. On the flipside I didn't want your post to go unanswered.

Thanks I am thinking along those lines, I do think in my heart it is over, just trying to see what other peoples exp is so tanks for answering it very much appreciated - do you mind if I ask how far you were when the heart had stopped, sorry you have been through this

they think hb stopped at about 6 weeks. I hope things turn out differently for you. Will be thinking of you.

I'm afraid I would be prepared for the worst - I've had two mc when they saw a heartbeat but the baby was smaller than it should have been and I had to go back for further scans. One time I bled and miscarried but the other time I had a missed mc and despite waiting a few weeks ended up having the medical management. Hope you are Ok tomorrow.

Thanks, I will keep you postd, I think it is a mmc, I had one before very early on and bled straight away so knew what was going on and felt I hhad some control over things, this is alot harder as I dont know whats going on, they did say I would be able to have a d&c tomorrow if need be

Thankyou, I did have the d&c yesterday, am feeling ok about everything, I hahd to wait most of te day as they needed to wait for the top surgeon in gynea because of my history so it was a long day, but I have had no bleeding today and feel really well - now to convince dp to get snipped smile
