Okay i went to er with spotting, they told me i was without a doubt miscarring, i went to see a doctor four days latter for a blood pregnancy test, my hcg levels rose but not as much as they should have, then i took another blood pregnancy test eight days latter still rising, i had and ultrasound and the said i was 5 weeks and 5 days. two days latter i cstarted bleeding alot with some clots, dr did an ultra sound same day saying i was six weeks four days with no heartbeat still. ( by the way i was told i have a hemrage sac that i should loose, which explained my brown discharge i have had for a few days. ) doctor says hes almost 100 percent sure that i am miscarring and need to schedule a d and c.

By 6 weeks, they whould be able to at least see a heartbeat on a transvaginal ultrasound. Couple that with the bleeding and it sounds like a miscarriage.

I'm so sorry of what you're going through. I went through a similar situation a few years ago. It is likely you're miscarrying, but if you want to see how it goes, your body will take care of it without a d&c in most cases. You can let your body handle it and they can check you with another ultrasound in a few weeks to make sure everything looks like it should. I did not have a d&c. I was holding on to hope from the numbers that still rose, but my body did what it had to. I hope your situation is different, but that was my experience. If you need someone, feel free to message me.
