    My partner and i are currently 7+ weeks pregnant. We had our first ultrasound yesterday and were told the baby is 9 days behind where it should be. Measuring only 3mm rather than the 12mm it should be. But has a strong heart beat of of 112b/m.
    After seeing our OB she has left us with concerns that the baby may not survive, or will possibly have developemental issues.
    We will wait and see what happens with our next ultrasound next week, but we are very concerned !
    Also we are a same sex couple , so my partner has been having fertility drugs and we had AI . She is still taking some drugs atm . Will that be why our OB is concerned , maybe if we stopped taking the drugs the pregnancy will naturally abort itself ?

    Hey mishmelle!
    Firstly congrats on your pregnancy :) the strong heartbeat sounds promising.
    What drugs is she currently taking? If she is taking them due to existing hormone level issues then I strongly suggest she continues them. My best advise would be to check with your fertility specialist. You would think they'd tell her to stop taking the drugs if they were going to cause complications during the pregnancy.
    Im 7wks with #2 and I'm on a medication that my specialist has instructed me to continue on until bub is born. more risk of miscarriage if i stop it as it has brought my body back into normal routines so they dont want any hormones to change back to irregular if i stop.
    All the best and keep us posted
    missy :)
