My last mp was 10/27/11. I went in on 12/21/11 for my first ultrasound and all she could see was an amniotic sac, no baby. It looked completely empty. She said either I was much earlier in my pregnancy than 7 wks 4 days or that it was a blighted ovum. My bloodwork that afternoon came back with high beta count and she said she was 90% sure that it was a blighted ovum, no baby??
I went back on 12/27/11 and the amniotic sac then had a yolk sac with a little smudge on the side. Dr said there was growth but she wasn't sure why my beta was so high.
Back again for a 3rd transvaginal ultrasound on 1/4/11 and there was now what she called a fetal pole. It seems the same as the crown rump that was mentioned in earlier posts. She said she measured it and I would've been about 6 weeks pregnant. Problem is there was no heartbeat detected.
I will go back again next Thursday. She says if we don't see a heartbeat by then it will be considered a lost pregnancy. What I don't understand is how can the baby still be growing but there be no heart? Should there be a heartbeat present already? Should I be concerned? If there is no heartbeat next week, should I wait another week just in case?
I was about 7 weeks pregnant and told my doctor I felt off, that something was off. ( military doctor) they said I was fine at about 8 weeks I lost all my symptoms. I knew something was wrong yet the doctor would not do any testing..
At 12 weeks they tried to find a heartbeat on a Doppler. Nothing.
At 13 weeks same thing they couldn't find one on a Doppler
At week 14 they still couldn't so brought in a very small ultrasound.
Then same day sent me to another ultrasound. (big machine)
The baby had not been found. The sac etc was the size of a 14 week pregnancy. Fluid and all. I have had no bleeding at all...
They said to go home and wait. I did,
Week 16 still growing a belly. Then I went home to be with my mother.
After many doctors and appointments they set me up for a Dnc round 21 weeks... It was so har trying to find a doctor outside of my own to do it but I was getting an infection.. They did an ultra sound and I had a 21 week fluid and uterus and a 8 week baby at the bottom..
there are so many times that women go in for an u/s at 6wks and the heartbeat is not seen, try not to stress to much, by next week if you have a viable pregnancy you should be able to see the heartbeat, your ovulation may have been alot later during the cycle you concieved, this is not uncommon
