To give you just a little bit of background information first, as of today I am 7.5 weeks pregnant. About a week ago on a Tuesday I had my first ultrasound where they saw the fetus and everything. Everything looked good, gestational sack, yolk sack, and heartbeat, which was a strong 126 BPM. Doctor says everything's fine and everything looks healthy. I credit alot of that to my healthy eating and prenatal vitamins and carefulness of anything I do. I was wandering, what are the chances of having a miscarriage around this time? Do you think everything will be alright
Hi, a HUGE congrats on your pregnancy. I will share my experience. I became pregnant in August 2010 everything was progressing wonderful and I went in for a sonogram and the first time they saw the yolk sak and a flicker but they couldnt give me a heartrate. I was 6 weeks 3 days. I went back at 7.3 and the baby was looking great and the heartrate was 149. I went back a week later at at 8.3 and they couldnt detect a heartbeat and I had a d&c. I never had any cramping or bleeding. But I think that is a rare occurance after the heartbeat so dont sweat it. You will be just fine
