this is a really long story but i just wondered if anyone had been through anything like this,
basically i found out i was pregnant when i was 5 weeks but had tummy pains and stitch sort of pullings low down so i went to my local gp who examined me along with the midwife who both though i was 18 to 20 weeks but they couldnt find any heartbeat, so they sent me to have a scan the same day and turns out i was 5 weeks 3 days no heartbeat but a huge cyst on my left ovarie measuring 13cms.
since then ive had regular scans and on the 23rd september baby only measured 6weeks 3 days which was less than expected due to scans before but there was a heartbeat so 2 weeks later 7th oct they scan again im expecting to be 8weeks 3days but baby measures smaller than 2 weeks ago now 6weeks 1day and now no heartbeat the sac measures 28mm but is abnormal shaped but they suddenly found another sac, nothing inside this one, they want me to go back on monday but i no theres no chance but they have to make sure the twin sac is not amounting to anything, the twin sac is alot smaller than the other, im just heartbroken and so confused,
still no bleeding but to have some pains but ive had them all along really due to the cyst and the size of it, any help would be much appreciated xxx

im so sorry for your loss. my friend had this happen. she took one of those tests which tell you how many weeks you are and it said 3+ so she assumed more than 5weeks pregnant. when she would have been 10weeks she went for a scan and it was just an empty sac. she went back 1week later and it was still empty. she had to have a D&C. shes currently trying again.
at the beginning of my pregnancy i had pain on one side. i had a scan done and there was two sacs. one had a fetal pole in with a heartbeat measuring 5w3d. the fetal pole was just 2mm long!! the other sac was empty. i went back 1week later and my empty sac was still there and my fetus was not measuring up properly, and the sac was oval shaped and measured way bigger than the dates. my sac measured 8 nd a half weeks and my fetus measured between 5-6wks instead of 6 nd a half wks. it was not looking at all good. i went back 1week later and they told me to expect bleeding. but i didnt and on my next scan my fetus measured perfectly and the other sac had gone. so my outcome was good, hes a healthy happy almost 5 month old now. but my friends was not good. xxx

its called a missed miscarriage hun. the body doesnt notice the heart has stopped. this can carry on for some weeks, usually 6 at the most before bleeding starts. your doctor can send you to hospital for tablets to get the miscarriage started or a D&C can be done. or you can choose to let your body do what it needs to do and let nature take its course. im so sorry you are having to go through this xx
