Hi, i was around 6 wks when i was getting pains one side so i went for a scan, they couldn't see a heartbeat. The horrible person who done my scan said to me i cant find hb come back in 2 wks, this was my first pregnancy and i didn't know if it was normal not to see hb so i asked her and she just rolled her eyes at me and tuttted and huffed in my face and said oh you've probably lost it I'll see you in 2 wks. As you can imagine i left there in tears, someone recommended a site called baby and bump, that was 5yrs ago and i still hear. I spoke to a few women who didn't see the hb till 8/9 wks, long story short they finally picked up the hb at 9wks, Fingers crossed it works out well for you also,
If I went for a scan at 7 weeks and was sure of my dates and there was no hb I would definitely be worried. It's a shame you don't know what the fetal pole or sac was measuring. If they measured correctly I would be a bit more hopeful. I have seen people have happy endings in these situations so I'd definitely have hope but I'd prepare myself for the worst. Can I ask whether it was an abdominal or transvaginal scan? If it was abdominal do you carry any extra weight around your tummy?
Sorry to butt in... is a 7 week scan a normal thing to have or only if you think there is a problem? I've only heard of people have a 12 and 20 week scan
In the UK, it's normal procedure to have a 12 and 20 weeks scan, if any pain/bleeding etc a scan will be done, or a reassurance scan will be offered to ladies who have suffered a loss/losses around 7/8 weeks.
Smurff, that is horrible, I know the feeling all to well. That happened to me & hubby while trying to find out the gender. Feb. Bb in heaven. My 1st pregnancy but thereafter I had my 9.5lbs 22in rainbow bb boy. Ppl like that should not work inplaces like this. Xoxoxo
Unfortunately my news is not good... at 8w5d my hcg was only 200. And yesterday at 8w6d my ultrasound confirmed miscarriage. Unfortunately my cervix was still closed and refusing to budge so had to have it opened (luckily they put me under for the procedure).
I am now at home, recovering. I never thought that my first pregnancy could end like this, but I am holding on to the thought that it will get better with time.
@Ricschick: i hope you have a better outcome! Keeping my fingers crossed!
