My friend is 8 weeks pregnant. Last night had a little spotting so called NHS helpline who booked her in for a scan today. From doing the scan the midwife says theres no heartbeat and the baby is small for 8 weeks. She asked my friend if her dates were correct coz sometimes at just 6 weeks it could be hard to find a heartbeat (my friend thinks so but not quite sure). The midwife has asked them to come back in a week for another scan for confirmation.

Does this sound right to anyone? Is there a small chance that the baby is alive? Maybe someone in the profession can shed a bit of light.
