I am almost 18 weeks pregnant, i just found out that my babies heart beat stopped at 14 weeks. I have been having really bad contraction pains and the dr wants me to wait 3 more weeks to see if it passes on its own and if not i will have a d and c done.. Is this harmful to me, and my health? Is this normal for this kind of situation?

Hello.
Welcome to this forum.
Sorry to hear you. Yes. The recommended treatment is to wait for 2 weeks whether a labor pain starts or not. If it doesn't appear within that period of time... You need to go to her. Meanwhile,there always need a monitoring of blood parameters to see if everything is going fine. However, you are now having contractions and I presume soon you will start the process. Look for any flow or bleeding or intense pain pain and that is the time you have to go to the emergency.
Hope I can address your query. Please visit your doctor if there is any further confusion as without a clinical examination it is not possible to opine through an online medical forum.
