In a very odd sort of way I was relieved that the u/s didn't show a hb. B/c if it had, while I still had all this pain and worry and stress, then I would have been deeply confused and would have felt that my instincts were totally wrong. And since my instincts are what saved Sophie's life, I now put a lot more stock into them. Finding out that I had imagined/misinterpreted the dread I spoke of at the beginning of this post would have made me lose a lot of confidence in my ability to read my body. Does that make any sense?
You are in my thoughts.

I hope your D&C or m/c is as easy and painfree as possible for you. I will miss you and be thinking of you in the days to come.

I too had a blighted ovum my first pregnancy. I found out at 8 weeks and began miscarrying at 10 weeks. In hindsight I wish I had gotten the D&C because I bled for 3 weeks straight and then had no period or ovulation for 6 months. i found out later I wasn't supposed to bleed that long. So a D&C at least controls a lot of that.
Take it easy and nurture yourself.
: for you
Mama to 10 so far:Mother of Joey (23), Dominick (15), Abigail (13), Angelo (10), Mylee (8), Delainey (6), Colton (4), ID girls Dahniella and Nicolette (2 in July), and Baby 10 coming sometime in July 2015. If evolution were true, mothers would have three arms!
Its sounds like a good thing to be proactive about the D&C. Doing always seems easier than waiting for the unknown to me. Treat yourself well.
