SCAN
I am 10-11wks pregnant and just came back to gynae visit,when we did the scan on my last visit which was when I was 6-7wks we could only see the Sac.And the we saw the same thing today only bigger that the last time but no heart beat. Is this normal or am I going to have a mis misscarriage?

If there is no heartbeat at 10 weeks, then unfortunaterly it would seem that the baby has died. The usual management would be to have a D&C. Has your gynaecologist not explained this?
