no heartbeat
i went for a check up approx 8/9 weeks pregnant and they said that they cannot find a heartbeat and they want to do an op on me to clean me out. My hcg level on 26 feb was 26337 and i am going for another blood quantitive on monday 2 april to see what the level is to see of it is progressing. My gynae feels my baby is no longer alive, but i cannot go ahead with the op because I don't feel it is dead, I would rather my body naturally start a misscarraige then me decide to abort, I would always wonder. I was reading some other chat sites and there was a person who said up to 12 weeks they could find a heartbeat and her child is now born and is perfectly healthy. I still get queasy, and dizzy and cannot eat meat or coffee and am tired alot.

Do you have any advice for me, this waiting is quite stressfull.

If you are not comfortable, then wait. See what the hcg result is on Monday.
