I'm so sorry that you got bad news.

Please wait for the additional ultrasound if you think it will help give you peace with the possible loss. It is possible that she technician made a mistake, but understand that if your dates indicate that you're 9 weeks pregnant and the baby is only measuring at 6 weeks, something is likely happening. The baby should be much larger over that 3 week period.

The same thing happened to me -- my baby died 2 weeks before I even starting having any bleeding.

As far as the pregnancy test, a positive test does not mean anything. The body may produce pregnancy hormones even after the baby's heart as stopped bleeding. It can take several weeks after the baby dies for the body to recognize the loss.
