Is there a chance my baby has already died and I haven`t had spotting or cramping?

Hi
I`m currently 10wks pregnant, this is my 11th pregnancy and I have 2 girls. I suffer from multiple miscarriage. What I would like to know is I haven`t had sore breasts or morning sickness with this pregnancy but I did with all the others, Is there a chance my baby has already died and I haven`t had spotting or cramping yet as this has happened to me before, I got to 12wks and the baby had died at 9wks. Thanx so much for all your help as my doctor isn`t being that helpful even though he knows my past history he wont give me another blood test, he said just wait and see if you have spotting or a bleed.
Thanx Beck

Answer: Hi Beck, A blood test will not show that you have miscarried just yet. Try not to worry for now as unfortunately there is not much that you can do except wait. If you still feel the same in 2 weeks you may need an ultrasound as by then the baby is a better size to check over more fully. Best wishes, Alex
