Thanks for your query.
Your ultrasonography are suggestive of missed abortion so there is no hope, so better you should consult a gynaecologist for medical or surgical abortion.
I can understand your feeling but believe me there is no other option except this. Missed abortion should be treated as early as possible because it may be harmful to your body.
Good Luck.
Take care.
