I went through the forum and found alot of questions about miscarraiges and empty sacks. I'm almost 8 weeks pregnant and this worries me a bit. How would you know that you have a miscarraige and if there's an empty sack would you still have the pregnancy symptoms? Why does a baby's heart stops beating?

If there was an empty sac, this would be picked up on the first scan. Most miscarriages start with bleeding. A very small number occur when the fetal heart stops beating without any bleeding. The reasons for this are not always known, but may be related to poor implantation.
