Hello everyone and my heart goes out to you all for your losses. My husband and I had been trying for close to a year and this would have been our first child. I had some spotting on Thursday and went in for an ultrasound, only to find that there was no heartbeat. We should've been around ten weeks but baby only measured 6. I was in shock and neither of us heard much of what the doctor said. He scheduled a follow up ultrasound a week from now and said there might be a lot of blood similar to a period before then. Other than that I don't know what to expect. It has been very difficult for both my husband and I. Is a natural miscarriage painful? If it doesn't happen naturally is it safe to have the tissue inside of me for another week? I have no clue what to expect and feel so sad/anxious.
