Your wife's sonogram report should be correlated with serum beta-hCG values and also the last menstrual period if she had regular cycles previously. If it is evident that she has a missed abortion, there is no use in using any medication to continue pregnancy and the best treatment is evacuation. If, on the other hand, a viable pregnancy not correlating with the dates is observed, it is advisable to follow it up as later scans show normal picture in many cases. Given your situation, I advice you to go for a second opinion before going on with the treatment as, in either way, immediate treatment is a must. Good luck.
