Miscarriage - Leavenworth,KS
I am 8 weeks pregnant and my doctor can not find a heartbeat and has not seen fetal growth and says I will miscarry. Does anyone know how long before I should expect symptoms to start? When can I can I expect my pregnancy symptoms (nausea) to go away?

I am so sorry for your loss. I miscarried at 7 weeks 3 years ago. Mine happened differently. I had already started bleeding. "The Nest" has a great pregnancy loss board with lots of great ladies on it. It can be very helpful. Good Luck and again I am very sorry for your family's loss.

I am sorry for your loss. I had a m/c at 10 weeks (the baby stopped growing at 8, and no heartbeat). After I had a d&c, my symptoms went away within a week. Emotionally, it takes longer. Feel free to email me, if you would like support.

I'm also sorry for your loss. Mine took 2 weeks to complete. If I had it to do over I would do the d&c so that I could move on. It was a miserable long 2 weeks. I was 13 weeks a long so would have been 15 weeks when the loss happened.

First of all I just want to say how sorry I am for your loss.
I miscarried between my two children and we didn't expect anything was wrong until I started bleeding. I went to the doctor and was told that I'd m/c within 24-48 hrs. Sure enough that's when it happened.
I continued to have m/s up until the point to where my blood tests came back as HcG down to zero.
Hugs. Take care.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss! I am not sure I have never been in that situation, but my neighbor was at four months pregnant and it took her three days to pass her baby. It is very emotional experience I would talk to your doctor if you need some support from other Moms that know more or just need someone to talk to.
You will be in my prayers

First I am sorry about your possible loss... I agree with one of the other mom's that you should get a second opinion and wait just in case... I have had 2 losses, one misscarrage, and one at 32 weeks... My misscarrage however I was bleeding when I went into the doctor so we knew it was true... It is right that the heartbeat is hard to detect... Even with a vaginal ultrasound it can be... I also have a uterine fold and with this current pregnancy they had a rough time finding a heartbeat at first too... There are many things to look into... My nausea was there till the bleeding stopped for me with my misscarrage, but I was told it can be different for everyone... I hope it is gentle on you and please know i will say a prayer for you...

I don't have any advice on the symptoms and such but did want to make sure to say I'm sorry for you and your family's loss. Hopefully the rest goes smoothly for you and you have success should you decide to try for another pregnancy.

I am so very sorry. I had two miscarriages and no matter what length of your pregnancy, it is a loss. I was 10 weeks, no heartbeat or sign of life. My choice was to have the baby abort naturally or do a DC. I chose the DC only because the waiting to see "when" was unbearable when there was no chance of life. It was difficult but the daily "Will it be today" was worse. Just a little information, 1 out of 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage. It is more common than you think and it should be mourned, treated and counseling (if necessary) as a loss. My prayers are with you and your family. God bless.
