I just had a transvaginal ultrasound at 7 weeks 2 days. They found an embryo but no heartbeat. The technician said this is not so rare, but my doctor said that there is little to no hope that this is a viable pregnancy. Has anyone else had an ultrasound at this stage? What did you see? Should there be a heartbeat by now?
I also had one done not too long ago, I'm not sure how many weeks I was, but they also couldn't find the heartbeat and determined that my baby was dead, they also determined that because my HCG levels were decreasing, and that was a week ago, and I was told that I was going to have a miscarriage, however, it still has not happened and I pray that it does not and that my baby is perfectly fine. I have another u/s on thursday of next week, so wait and then go back and check again.
I had a transvaginal ultrasound at 7 weeks with a heartbeat, but at 9 weeks there was none. I ended up having a DNC. It is a very emotional experience, but not as uncommon as I once thought. I was amazed at the number of people who shared their experience(s) with miscarriages after hearing about mine. Good luck and keep trying. Although I have had several miscarriages, I am also the proud mother of two wonderful boys. Hang in there. :)
sorry to hear that.i had the exact same test as u at 7wks and we could c arms growing legs and a head and also a little heart beating,i hope this doesnt scare u,keep ur head up and fingers crossed 4 you
I had a VU at 9.5 weeks and they didnt hear aheartbeat. My doctor told me she thinks it is dead, but could it be too soon to find a heartbeat? They took my HCG level 4 days after the TVU and they said the levels was fine for being that far along, so they wanted to take another HCG level today to see if its increasing or decreasing, has anyone ever heard of this? Waiting
I just had a miscarraige (miscarriage) at 7 weeks. I went in one day for a ultra sound bcuz I was bleeding and they said that everthing was fine, 2 days later i had cramps and more bleeding, went back in and the baby had no heart beat and had passed. Its hard to cope with but they can see the heart beating at 7 weeks.
I've had three miscarriages and am now pregnant again. At 6 weeks, 4 days I had an altrasound with this current pregnancy and saw the heartbeat! 135 BPM! The baby's heart starts beating at 5 weeks and can be seen then on an untrasound. We are praying this baby is here to stay!!!
