Thanks for writing to us.
Since your wife is more than two months pregnant, there should have been a growing fetus with a heart beat and a well defined yolk sac visible in the ultrasound scan. Since there is no heart beat detected, a missed abortion is likely.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. You can consult me again directly through my profile URL
