Missed miscarrage..

Okay I'm 10wks preg.., the Dr said my baby quit growing at 8wks & no hb.. No miscarrage symptoms and I'm in denial, my mind says don't lose hope, I don't want a d&c just in fear that my baby is okay.. How long will it take my body to do something if things are not good..
, its going on 3 weeks...

If it has been 3 weeks since your baby stopped growing, and you have had a recent ultrasound to show this, and there is no heart beat, they are all signs this is not a viable pregnancy. If you are concerned, by all means get a second opinion. However, 3 weeks of no growth evident in ultrasounds indicates there is no hope. If there were growth, I'd agree with you, but no growth?

I am very sorry for your loss, however your body doesn't always do this on its own. A D&C may be the only way. If you choose not to do that, there could be risk of infection, so one way or the other, this needs to be resolved.
