I am pregnant with my 4th child, according to LMP I am 12 weeks 3 days. My cycles were messed up due to a miscarriage in august so the date could be off by a little. So yesterday we went to a free clinic for an ultrasound since we are planning a home birth and having prenatal care done by a midwife. I was shocked when they told me they found no heartbeat. They also said the baby is measuring only 8 weeks. I have had horrible nausea and breast tenderness up until a few days ago when it finally let up a little bit. These are good signs of a healthy pregnancy. The pregnancy test they had me take at the clinic was a strong positive yesterday as well. They told me that I need to go to the Dr asap as I am almost surely having a miscarriage. I have had some minor cramps the last couple of days on and off but I assumed they were from my uterus growing. I was shocked and devastated at what they told me yesterday. They did both a regular ultrasound and a vaginal ultrasound, both showed no heartbeat. I have read so many miracle stories this morning that I am trying to have faith. I was sure this baby was going to make it. I'm sorry I don't have any advice for you, but I can relate. I'm not going to the Dr as of now, I'm just going to pray and hope for the best.
