MyHeart, thank you. I wouldn't be so paranoid but for the sperm, the losses and the combination of yolk sac and heart rate.....

Thank you Heart..... sort of resigned to it being a bad outcome.... Might go for another scan soon-ish, if the yolk sac grows any more it will definitely be bad news.

I am sorry you are going through this. I can't comment on the sac size as I can't remember what it was at my 6+3 scan. I can speak on the hb as at my 6+3 scan the hb was 97, which is low. My OB told me not to worry as it's early so it's ok. At my 12 week scan everything adjusted and hb went up to 170.

Talk with the Dr and express your concern and see if you can't have another scan done, I wish you all the best!

Please, please, please stop worrying about the heartrate. 140-150 is TOTALLY normal for your gestation. I'd be concerned if it were under 100 but 140? No. It's not slow, it's not low, it's normal. In fact, for DS pg, his heartrate was 125-145 the entire pregnancy and my dr never worried. (Just looked up the heartbeat range and anything from 120-180 is considered normal for 8 weeks. Also, remember that babies have sleepy periods too and it's entirely possible your bubba was just taking a nap or chillin' during your scan.)

I do understand why you are concerned though. Having been thru RMC and complicated pregnancies even with my rainbows, it's not easy being pregnant again. The yolk sac size is understandably worrisome for you and I get that. I truly do and I know how hard it is to be pregnant knowing with all your heart that it's almost certainly going to end in a loss. If you read my journal at all, you'll know at least part of my story and if you look especially at the posts I made back in Jan-Mar when I was 1st tri with this baby you'll see just how hard it was for me to be pg. I was prepping myself for another loss every day because I was bleeding, I was cramping, and I had almost no pg symptoms whatsoever. My anxiety was thru the roof. Yet, here I am at 29 weeks and still amazed I'm this far.

I also know there is nothing I can say or do that will ease your mind at this point. PARL is hard enough but when you have known causes for your losses and it's something you can't just treat with a daily pill or a shot, it's even harder. So know that I am thinking of you and I'm sending all the thoughts and prayers and sticky healthy baby vibes I can your way. Believe in miracles, Sweetkat, because they do really happen.

Wanted to say a massive thank you to all the ladies who responded and for your lovely post dairymomma . It almost made me cry.

Some good news for now (although won't stop worrying until the chromosome tests come back ok). Yolk sac is 4.8mm - made the sonographer measure it 3 times. Heart rate is 176 and the baby measures 20.1mm.

I have no idea why the yolk sac measured so big last time - the dr said the measurements are tiny and it's easy to make a mistake.
