our daughter just went through this on Friday. She was also 9 wks and found out on Wed that there was no heartbeat. 2 wks prior, everything looked great and was going great. On Wed she was cramping and it got worse and worse, contractions started Thurs evening and we ended up at hospital 1am Friday morning. The D & C had been scheduled for Fri at 7am, but while at the hospital around 2am she delivered and all the pain subsided and was more at ease. Kept the appt at 7 and had the D & C and was lucky that we did, she still had tissue in her cervix along with in the uterus. So please, might I suggest that even when you do miscarry, please be seen by doc and have D & C done; we don't want an infection to start. I am so very sorry for your loss, it is a difficult time!!! Don't give up, this is God's way of fixing something that could very bad later on. This would have been their first and our first grandbaby and it will happen. Stay Strong and trust in God to make it happen in his time!!!View Thread
