I am currently going through a missed miscarriage. I went to the doctor to get refered to an OB/GYN for my medicaid and they wanted me to get an ultrasound done to confirm how far along I was since I wasn't sure. I got the ultrasound done and turns out I was 5 wks 2 days but there was no heartbeat and looked like an empty sac but it was too early. I scheduled another ultrasound for 2 wks later to make sure everything was okay because my HCG levels were rising normally. Well at my second ultrasound they saw the baby but told me it had died and the sac was still very small. The baby has now died almost 5 weeks ago and I have had absolutley no signs of miscarriage (no bleeding or cramps). How much longer am I going to have to wait to expel? I don't want a D&C because it sounds horrible, I'm not worried about the pain. It's just that was my baby and I want it to pass naturally. How long can it take?
