I should be 13 weeks pregnant but I found out recently that the baby died at 6/7 weeks alhamdulilah ala kulli haal qadr Allah wa ma sha fa'al and the placenta/sac continued to grow and progress hence I still 'feel pregnant' and it is the size of 13 weeks/where I should be right now. I am scheduled to have a D&C most likely friday inshaallah as it wouldn't happen on its own. My question is, I saw that on all the fatawa it is mentioned that you should stop praying when you have bleeding from the miscarriage once you can diffrentiate the body parts on the fetus/embryo but it also gives the time of that as 81 days. So, I am more than 81 days pregnant, and the placenta/sac is more than 81 days developed but the fetus itself stopped growing before 81 days so once the miscarriage occurs do I stop praying or continue to pray?

Inna lilahi wa inna ilayhe rajioon. I am sorry to hear of your loss sister. May Allah give you better than what He took away from you. May Allah grant you patience. ameen.
I sent in your question to Islamweb. If we get a response of course I'll post it inshaAllah. In the meantime, I am looking for a fatwa related to your question.

I am not sure if this fatwa relates more to your case....
Fatwa no. 17250
Q: A woman, who was in the fourth month of pregnancy, was breast-feeding her child and did not know that she was pregnant and experienced bleeding. She went to the hospital and there she was told that she was pregnant
(Part No. 4; Page No. 265)
and she would soon have a miscarriage . After she was examined, they found that what was inside her was not a baby but just an empty placenta and they performed a cleansing operation. Is this considered postpartum blood?
Note: The doctors said that the baby might have died in the first or second month. She took an antibiotic without knowing that she was pregnant, which caused the miscarriage .
A: If the reality is as mentioned in the question, this woman is not in postpartum period. In fact, she is in the menstruation period. She can offer Salah, Sawm, and have sexual intercourse with her husband. But she has to perform Wudu' at the time of every Salah and place a piece of cotton or something like it. She does not have to do any thing as regards the death of the embryo, because it was not yet complete. She has to stop Salah and Sawm during the days of her menstruation, then make up for the missed obligatory Salah and Sawm.
May Allah grant us success! May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions!

Jazakhiallahu khayr sis, that sounds similar to my case so I will go with that unless you see any thing stating otherwise.
