7 weeks no hb... Is there hope

I had a trans vaginal scan at 6 weeks and measured 2 days behind.  Yesterday I had a trans vaginal scan done at 7w1d.  It showed a fetal pole and a sac measuring 6 weeks. But no heart beat!!!!

I know when I conceived... I was charting, using ovulation predictor kits and my hubby was working double shifts so we just did the deed when I got the positive.

I started with good hcg levels, but low progesterone.  So I was put on Crinone suppositories.  I had no bleeding until the day before my scan.  I had an orgasm and bled bright red for a very short time.  (No intercourse)... Literally wiped it away and no more bleeding.  Then after my scan I bled lightly.

Even though my baby was small with no heartbeat, my dr wants me to wait 1 week and have another scan.  Because the baby had grown since the first scan the week before.

Do I have a chance?  No cramping.  No more bleeding (except left over crinone gunk - looks like cottage cheese - normally white... is brown.).  I have not had real morning sickness.  Just some queasiness.   Boobs hurt, heartburn and always tired.

Does anyone know if a good outcome measuring 1 week behind at 7 weeks with no heartbeat???

PS I had a miscarriage about 5 months ago.

Sorry to hear that you have to go through this stress! I too am going through the same thing.  I have had 2 previous miscarriages and this time around I am having a very similar experience to you.  I am 6 weeks and 4 days and have already had 3 ultrasounds.  The ultrasound at 5 weeks 6 days showed a gestational sac and the ultrasound yesterday (6 weeks and 3 days) showed no further development.  My Dr thinks I will miscarry in the next couple of weeks.  I have another ultrasound Tues (6weeks 6 days) and we will discuss our options after that.
My Dr did say he would have been happy to see just a yolk sac and a fetal pole so that's good news for you! I have heard many people say that they haven't seen the heartbeat till after 7 weeks.  I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.  Hopefully we can both be blessed with happy, healthy babies!  Best of luck.

Sorry you're dealing with this. If you read on the miscarriage forum you'll see other stories of ladies who didn't have a heart beat that early who went on to find a healthy baby the next week so it's possible that it's just to early to see everything on ultrasound. Good luck and keep us posted.
