Inevitable miscarriage - any hope?

I know I am grasping at a false hope really but has anyone been diagnosed with inevitable miscarriage and gone on to have a healthy baby?

Had a bleed 3 weeks ago luckily baby was ok, had another scan private last week and baby still doing well.

Last night bleeding again and terrible pain. Had a scan at epau I am 12+6. Baby moving and heart beating but sac is moving down and I am dilating.

Given the option to go home, stay in hospital or have meds to speed it up although that would be a termination due to heartbeat still present.

I decided to come home with pain meds and wait for it to happen naturally.

The cruelest thing is that the heart is still beating and baby was moving so it is still alive and I know it will die soon.

anyone had this happen and it all turn out ok?

I have experienced losing a baby at 17 weeks, and can only say how sorry I am that you are in this position and that I hope you have someone there to hold your hand.

I couldn't read and run. I wanted to send my love and thoughts. I am so terribly sorry that you are going through this. I can't offer experience as I had a MMC and so never saw a heartbeat but I know how bottomless the pit of despair feels. If you need to talk at any point I am here, if I can help. I bet many others are too. All my love x
