I am 28 yrs old and went to the OB last week to get my first ulrasound check up. according to my lmp They were thinking I was 7 wks 5 days, but They said I was only measuring 6 weeks 1 day. She said the heart rate was slower for norm at 47 bpm. After reading statistics I am very very scared. This is my first pregnancy for me and my husband.
I didnt even see the doctor it was a midwife who told me this.
Is it possible for a good outcome, could she have been wrong about the heart rate?
I was supposed to be 6 weeks 5 days and I was 5 weeks 6 days. At that point the fetal heart rate was 100bpm. I would ask them to do a repeat ultrasound just to make sure she read that correctly. Call your OB and see what they say. Sorry you are going through this.
