Like someone else said, at this point in a pregnancy there is nothing that they can do if you are miscarrying, I had a similar issue with my current pregnancy and in my case we are doing pretty good, because I am nearly 30 weeks pregnant with a healthy baby. When I went in at 5 weeks they told me it was likely the baby had stopped developing and that I would miscarry. I went back at 8 weeks because I had no bleeding or any signs of losing the baby. At 8 weeks there was a healthy little heartbeat and the kids going strong now. Have faith in your body and unless you start to bleed or are in severe pain just try to relax and know that putting as little stress on yourself is just about the only thing you have control over in this situation. Good luck!

I started to write out my story, but I do not want to scare you or cause you to lose hope. All I will say is that I am a STRONG believer in miracles, but do NOT hesitate to go straight in to the hospital if you start bleeding heavily.

Go. Just in case. It is very normal to have cramping through out the entire pregnancy. I did. But with you having a mis carriage before it will maybe ease your mind and take away some of the stress, which is bad for anyone who is pregnant. :)

if your going to miscarry there is nothing a doc/hosp can do.. if u are in pain or bleeding heavily or feeling unwell then absolutely go see someone for the sake of your own health :)

If you are asking yourself this question, then it is time to go to the hospital and check it out. It is possible that this will all pass, but the outcome is important enough that you do NOT want to risk it.

Personally I would get checked out. I was just talking to my neighbor who said her daughter was feeling great and didn't know but her fetus had died two weeks earlier. I would say better safe than sorry. Hope everything is ok :)

Hi.. this has happened to me. If its the same thing what happens is you are 8 wks preg (well thats what your body thinks) but fetus stop growing well before 4-5 wks because something was wrong thats why in ultra sound he wasnt sure as if it was an 8 wk fetus it would be very clear in ultra sound. Your body should pass before 12 weeks, google it but from my memory its called a missed/silent miscarriage. Take care :)

If you're feeling a little better today and you're not bleeding I would wait it out a little longer. If things change I would be seen right away. I wish you all the best!
