    It’s likely her foetus is developing too slowly, or there’s still a heartbeat but it’s weak and it’s not developing at all and her hormone levels are dropping. Miscarriages can be long and drawn out. My friend had to wait weeks, at first the doctor was concerned because the foetus wasn’t growling/developing but there was still a heartbeat, that lasted for a while until the heartbeat stopped and then finally they had to do a d&c to get rid of it. It was two weeks of hell for her.

    There is a heartbeat and the foetus is growing but not quickly enough - Sput’s post below sounds like a similar case...

    that's what happened to me in my first pregnancy. it is scary and if you want to be pregnant, can be really scary. took a few weeks for the fetus to actually die and miscarry, and because i was so far along they eventually had to do a d&c. really sucky. and a long wait.

    I probably mentioned this in another thread, but the worst thing I ever saw was a coworker who was just a few weeks from delivering. All of a sudden, there was no movement from the baby. And my coworker felt ice cold. She went in to her obstetrician, and I think they sent her back home for a few days. Then, she went in again, and they scanned her and found that the baby had been strangled by the umbilical cord.

    They had a funeral and viewing. And by that, I mean, you could actually see how far along the fetus had developed. It looked like it was at 6-7 months, rather than 8-9. The husband was standing next to the fetus. The place was very crowded because of how well liked the husband and wife were, and the magnitude of the loss. I had gone alone without Mrs. Mo. I can't imagine what her reaction would have been to something that was so sad and surreal. They ended up having a perfectly healthy baby a year or so later. It's amazing what the human spirit will get people through.

    I think that I have said before (when we were going through fertility treatments etc) that my ex and his previous had had a miscarriage at 7 months. I believe that they induced her. That is why I didn’t tell him a lot of the progress when we were trying for a baby, but he was really really aware of when my period was due, when I was late and then later when it occurred......

    Dear friends of ours went through the same thing. Horrible. They didn't have a viewing, but the little casket at the funeral just about did me in. It was the saddest.

    My heart really goes out to all of you who went through the emotional devastation of losing a child - at whatever time of your pregnancy.

    I also have to admit that I admire Hilaria for sharing her experience in depth. Some of these details, even at my age and having gone through three high risk pregnancies, were completely new to me, and it is important for women to share their stories. Even her bikini shot shows that as fit as she is, and as early in pregnancy, sometimes, it just doesn't have a happy ending.

    Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Expecting Baby 5 Months After Miscarriage

    There's another little one on the way for Hilaria Baldwin and Alec Baldwin.

    On Wednesday, the famous yogi announced she is expecting, five months after publicly sharing she had suffered a miscarriage.

    "It is still very early...but we have learned that there is a little person inside of me," Hilaria captioned audio of a heartbeat. "The sound of this strong heart makes me so happy—especially because of the loss we experienced in the spring. We want to share this news as we are excited and don't want to hide the pregnancy. These first few months are tough with exhaustion and nausea...and I don't want to have to pretend that I feel ok."

    She also issued a plea to the press: "My one request is that the media not send paparazzi to follow me or buy independent paparazzi photos, hence encouraging them. I want to remain peaceful during this very early time in my pregnancy and getting chased around by cameras is not in the doctor's orders."

    The couple, who wed in 2012, are parents to daughter Carmen, 6, and sons Rafael, 4, Leonardo, 3, and Romeo, 1. In April, the expectant mom took to Instagram to reveal she was "most likely experiencing a miscarriage," noting the embryo's heartbeat was not strong.

    "I want to share with you that I am most likely experiencing a miscarriage. I always promised myself that if I were to get pregnant again, I would share the news with you guys pretty early, even if that means suffering a public loss. I have always been so open with you all about my family, fitness, pregnancies...and I don't want to keep this from you, just because it isn't as positive and shiny as the rest," Hilaria wrote on Instagram at the time. "I think it's important to show the truth...because my job is to help people by being real and open. Furthermore, I have no shame or embarrassment with this experience. I want to be a part of the effort to normalize miscarriage and remove the stigma from it. There is so much secrecy during the first trimester. This works for some, but I personally find it to be exhausting. I'm nauseous, tired, my body is changing. And I have to pretend that everything is just fine—and it truly isn't. I don't want to have to pretend anymore. I hope you understand."

    Days later, the star confirmed she had suffered a miscarriage. "There was no heartbeat today at my scan...so it's over...but I have some pretty strong and amazing heartbeats right here," she wrote on Instagram. "I am surrounded by such love and I feel so fortunate."

    Now, even more love is headed their way. Congratulations!
