Ultrasound yesterday measuring properly for dates but no heartbeat detected.


Has anyone had this issue? The doctor told me there is a good chance that the heartbeat is just too small to detect, and since I have a retroverted uterus it was harder to get the right view. The baby was measuring 6+4, which is completely accurate for my ovulation date. She told me I might miscarry, or everything might be okay.. Anyone else have similar experience? Thanks!

It might be ok! Did they say how big the fetal pole was? If it was less than 5mm there is still a good chance of a successful pregnancy if it was 5mm or bigger with no hb then things look a bit bleaker.

If you got an ultrasound report, it should say the length of the fetal pole on there. Hope everything turns out ok

At this point it's a waiting game. I think my ultrasound with this baby was 6 weeks and they could JUST see something. My third baby I was almost 6 weeks and I had to go back at 8 because they couldn't pick anything up. I think the best I can offer is as long as you haven't had anything that could be of concern, try to relax and think positive. Fingers crossed everything is okay!!

Thank ladies, I didn't ask many questions as I was sort of shocked- the night before the trained doctor was able to see the heartbeat on the mobile ultrasound, so why 12 hour later why couldn't the tech able to. It daawned on me after though about my tilted uterus and how the tech didn't really seem to try to hard to get the right angle- she was in there for 2 minutes, and the shots she got seemed really awkward to me. I guess I will know on friday...

I didn't ask for a paper copy of the report, and they don't give them unless asked, so I have only the words she gave me, to go on at this point.

In the uk it tends to be 12 weeks the heartbeat is seen on a scan. Im
Sure i read it starts to beat around 6 weeks so probably just small or needs a day or two. I had a private scan at 5 weeks 6 days and saw mine but he really does have amazing equipment. X

Im sure all will be ok hun especially if you have no cramping and bleeding. I do think technology now is so advanced and sometimes it can be great other times it creates worry. Let us know x
