missed miscarriage?

So I really wanted some advice on a few things. I had a missed miscarriage 9 months ago, I had miscarried at 8 weeks, waited until 12 but i still hadnt miscarried naturally so i had a surgical removal.

I found out i was pregnant on September 11th - a day before i was due on my period. My last period had been on August 15th. I am always on for 6 days and tend to have a perfect 28 day cycle. I am 100% sure i conceived on sept 1st as this is only date i had sex until first week of oct - weeks after i had received positive pregnancy test.

I went for a scan on the 16th as i was having intermittent cramping pain.

This scan showed the embryo to be 3.00mm but there was no heartbeat however by this date i should have been 8 weeks and 6 days and my dates at 100% right.

I was advised to come back as it was an expected miscarriage.

I came back to the doctors on the 24th Oct.
The scan was reading the embryo had grown to 5.9mm but was without a heartbeat. This scan was showing i was 6 weeks pregnant + 1 day - but by my dates, which i am 100% sure are correct, i should be 10 weeks and 0 days.

Now i understand i could have ovulated late, but this would not have made the baby show to be a whole month behind? Wouldn't it should it to be a week, 2 weeks max smaller had i ovulated later (which i doubt anyway as my ovulation is usually always mid cycle)

They have told me to come back in a weeks time. Im feeling really distressed and upset. I think it is obvious it is a miscarriage again as if there is no heartbeat at 6 weeks, that is worrying anyway but the fact it is only showing to be 6 weeks when it should at least be 10 weeks.

Has anyone experience this or anything similar?

please help

Hi I'm really sorry to hear you're having to go through all of this, it must be so stressful. I had a mc prior to this pregnancy (29+6) which made it really difficult to work out my dates...even after sn early scan at 8 weeks, my measurements at 12 weeks gave a completely different due date. I'm not a professional and I know our situations differ but I'm sending you the best of luck Xxxx
