Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss

Non viable potential Cornual pregnancy


I should be 7 weeks but nothing was in the sac during ultrasounds. HCG started out ok right after home test (700 then >1000) but fast forward 2 weeks later. 1st scan dr suspected cornual pregnancy which I had to Google (rare but more serious form of ectopic) and had me come in today for a second more aggressive scan. The 2nd scan and 2nd Doctor didn't think it was cornual but suspected non viable. I get to go in again next Tuesday for 3rd scan and 3rd Doctor who can schedule me Friday for a D&C. 
Here are my questions and hope people have seen this before!
1. Cramping started tonight but no bleeding yet. If non viable I was wondering if you could just miscarry normally even if it is Cornual?
2. If they were wrong and it is Cornual isn't a D&C not recommended due to perforation risks?
This is my second pregnancy and second loss. Sucks a lot. I'm 36 so I keep reading about my advanced maternal age. I am starting to hate that term! I just had a hystosonogram and endometerial biopsies so everything is anatomically normal. 
But if anyone can shed some insight on this I'd very much appreciate it!

    I’m so sorry for your loss.  I’ve had 3 losses and 3 d & cs.  In my experience, each one was very similar and I had little pain with little bleeding.  I have no experience with ectopic or cornual.  I hope it’s neither for you.  As far as AMA, I agree I hate that term but to give you a little hope.  I had my first pregnancy at 39 and ***TW-LC**** delivered my son at 40.  Again I’m sorry for your losses.   When you are ready there is a great group of ladies on the TTCAL Board

    SO sorry about your loss.  Ectopics are sad and lonely.  I had a cornual ectopic 2 years ago. I had to get multiple shots of methotrexate because a D&C was not an option due to the dangerous location of the ectopic.  The pregnancy reabsorbed into my body but it was as brutal process because I had to go in weekly for ultrasounds to make sure because of the high risk.  If the doctors are unsure about cornual versus non viability I would get a second opinion because if they can locate the sac they should know where the pregnancy is.  So sorry for you.
