Empty gestational sac at 6+3. Please help

Last Friday I went in for an ultrasound it measured 5w3d. I started to bleed some brown last night with a very tiny clot and went in again for another US. I was 6w3d at this ultrasound. The gestational sac had gotten bigger... But it was empty. No fetal pole, no heartbeat. Doctor went straight to miscarriage and told me I could book a D&C. I chose to wait until I am 7w2d for another us to try again. Has anyone had this happen? Successful or non successful.

Sorry this is happening to you. I had a missed miscarriage so very different but I did have a D&C and what they didn't tell me before was it can cause scar tissue which can make getting pregnant and carrying harder in the future. I hope all is as it should be at your US. Sorry I can't help more.

Hi <3 hope you are ok :) I just read an older post about how sometimes they just can't find the baby as they are so little and can 'hide' :) so I hope this is the case with you - I think you were wise to wait and have another us! apparently this can happen even up to 9 or 10 weeks :) hope this encourages you anyway hope you are not stressing out too much :) <3
