At 6 wks no growth: Sadly it appears from what you describe that your pregnancy only grew to 6 wks and then stopped - this is around the time that the most critical structures are developing (heart, kidneys ) . Importantly the uterus sometimes doesn't get the signal that the fetus stopped, and while the pregnancy will appear to keep going, the pregnancy is nonviable. This can make a pregnancy of 10 wks be only at 6.
