Waiting for miscarriage to pass

i went to the doctor last week at 11wks pregnant and there was no heartbeat. i've had 2 other m/c but passed them quickly and on my own. tomorrow i go back to the doctor to find out if they'll proceed with a d&c (i'm nervous...never had one) or just wait this out...but i feel crazy b/c i cant help but to wonder what is going on inside my body right now while we wait...the doctor said the u/s showed a perfectly growing baby nothing wrong with it, but---
what happens once the heart stops beating? what is happening to the fetus? i hate to ask but i just want to know...all i can think is "i have a dead baby inside me"
i hate this feeling and just want it to go AWAY!

Baby gets heart beat only in 10th or 11th week. If you have been taking proper diet, medical advice of doctor on a monthly basis, the baby should be perfect and you must wait for the doctor to confirm that the baby is quite normal and healthy.

i saw this heartbeat and my last m/c i saw the heartbeat both at about 8wks...i've been taking the right diet and getting the medical care needed. the doctor did tell me everything looked fine...perfect but then when i went to the doc at 11wks there was no heartbeat...
thank you for your reply but not quite what i was looking for...not meaning to be rude...sorry. i know text can come across wrong but thank you so much.
