could this be a missed carriage?

today was supposed to be my 10 week check up. on my 6 week check up the doctor showed me the tiny baby in the sac. today i was supposed to be around 10 weeks but when he did an ultra sound there was no baby or heart beat. the ultra sound showed i was only 7weeks and 5days. i have no signs of bleeding and i still feel some pregnancy symptoms could this be a missed carriage?

Hi it really is hard to tell on this one you should phone your local early pregnancy assesment unit as normally you don't have a scan at 10 weeks its allways 12 weeks unless there is a reason to and at 7 weeks they generaly do an internal scan as this gives them a clear view as the baby is still developing and to small to detect on a ultrasound scan over the stomache what has your GP / Midwife advised you to do? Sorry if this is no help its so hard to tell Hope you get the answers your looking for and keep us updated if possible
