10 weeks, no heartbeat, what can I expect?

I had some cramping last night with a bit of brown blood. I've had light bleeding before but it has always been light to dark brown and never on my underwear, just when I wiped. But last night I had some major cramping and when I went to the bathroom, there was some blood on my underwear, but it was dark brown. The bleeding never got any worse and in fact got better, plus the cramps went away after a few hours and didn't return. I called my midwife and they set me up for an ultrasound today. When I went in, the tech checked for awhile and then showed me that there was no heartbeat. She had the radiologist look at it as well and he came in and explained that there was no heartbeat and I was measuring at about 9 weeks when I should be 10 weeks. I still have all my pregnancy signs, and have shown no signs of cramping or heavy bleeding.

What should I expect to happen now? I never had a miscarriage before so I don't really know what to do. Any advise would be appreciated.

Sorry Mama I have no advice, when I had my mc everything came away on it's own. Sorry that you have to go through this. I hope you have lots of people around you to love and support you.
I am assuming that your midwife would have gotten the results from the u/c, you should call her.

Re: 10 weeks, no heartbeat, what can I expect?

I had this happen in July. I went in for my first check up and ultrasound and was told there was no heart beat. I had no bleeding or anything before. At first I wanted to wait and let nature take its course but when it had been almost two weeks and still nothing was going on I decided to get a d&c.

(hugs) mama, I know what you are going through. I was suppose to be almost 12 wks at my check up and I only measured nine.

If you need someone to talk to,send me a message.

I've walked in those shoes many times, mama. All you can really do now is wait. Your body may or may not miscarry on its own. If it doesn't, you may need a d&c. Whatever happens, it can be emotional for quite some time, but I promise... you will heal. I'm so sorry you have to go through this.

I just wanted to say I am so sorry Mama. My body miscarried on its own both times so I'm not sure what you can expect next. Just wanted you to know that I am thinking about you.

Oh, I'm so sorry. I could have written your OP myself. I waited about a month and still hadn't m/c naturally so I had a D&C.

Re: 10 weeks, no heartbeat, what can I expect?

I could have written this myself. I am in a very similar situation right this very moment. I'm 9 weeks 4 days and measuring at 6 weeks. I am to go back for another u/c on Wednesday to see if there has been any growth during the 4 day lapse. I have no idea what to expect next if there's still no growth or heartbeat. For me, the wait is nearly unbearable, but I know I'll get through it somehow.
You and all of the other mamas who are going through this are in my prayers!
