What are my chances that baby is fine??


Hi ladies

Just wondered if anybody has any experience of this....

I had a scan at 6wks and baby measured fine and we saw a heartbeat. Then I had another scan at 9 weeks (on weds) and baby only measured 7.5 weeks and we couldnt see a heartbeat, or much if anything really, a healthy yolk sac. We started with an abdo scan but my bowels were really inflamed and cast a big shadow over my uterus so we switched to an internal scan. As it was a private scan place they referred me to hospital where they will scan me again and that will be on wednesday when ill be 10weeks then discuss options...
What are the chances everything is still fine? A heartbeat at 6 weeks surely makes chances of MC alot less probable I duno, im clutching at straws....
Im still getting regular hormone surges. Last night, my boobs swelled up, got really hot and were throbbing. Afew days before i had a breakout of spots and my skin and hair felt really greasy all day. Is it normal to still feel pregnant when baby was meant to have passed over 2weeks earlier? xxx

Thanks in advance for any help/advice, i know it cant be easy sharing your experiences so I am grateful and very thankful xxx

I has a scan at 8+1, but measured 7+1. A heartbeat was there. Two weeks later growth was on track with the first scan but there was no heartbeat....both times I had brown spotting tho. I still had sore boobs and a bloated tummy. My chart called it a delayed miscarriage. Unfortunately it is possible, to lose the baby and your body doesn't realise. So sorry that you are going through this...

A heartbeat and then no heart beat is not a good sign. I've seen a healthy heartbeat at 10 weeks and then miscarried 2 weeks later. You can still feel pregnant if the baby dies. It is called a missed miscarriage. Sometimes the pregnant feelings last even after the baby has been passed. It's all really quite cruel.

I'm so sorry you're going through this.

I didn't pass naturally, but that's because I had a ERPC (d and c) the day after it was confirmed. I was offered 3 choices- pass naturally, take tablets and go home to pass the baby, or surgery. I chose surgery because I have a 14 month old that would have needed my attention.

yer those are the options i was told they will give me on weds. Ive already decided to go for the d&c for the simple reason that i dont want to see anything, which is why im so scared that it might happen in the meantime...did you have to starve before your surgery?if so how long for? I bet i'll have to wait until thurs then ...

I fasted from midnight the night before. Is there anyway you can get seen sooner? Maybe presenting to the emergency room? You might get a scan today early pregnant unit Monday an ERPC on Tuesday? I know it's not much better but it might get the ball rolling?
