Is it possible for baby to be hiding at 8 weeks? i feel like my doctor could possibly be wrong about missed miscarriage. maybe i'm just in denial..

Hide and seek: The baby may not be "hiding" and your MD has hopefully been "seeking" the present pregnancy through ultrasound and serial beta hCG's. If those to methods do no show pregnancy progress then a missed miscarriage is likely.
