Thanks for writing to us.
Since no heart beat was visible on the ultrasound scan and the sac size wqas 2 weeks smaller than the period of amenorrhea, missed abortion is likely. You need to go for a repeat scan to confirm the diagnosis. In case you do not want to have D&C, you can wait at home for a spontaneous expulsion.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

I am sorry to hear of your discomfort .
As there was no heart beat the tech called you again in a week so as to repeat the ultrasound . If still there is no heart beat it means an abortion has occurred and you may need to get a D and E . Thus please do not delay and get an ultrasound at the earliest .
Regards .
