Confused!!

Hey guys, I just wanted to know if anyone has experienced the same as me right now.

I had a early scan 3 weeks ago due to 2 previous mc. The scan showed a very strong, fast heartbeat and a healthy baby at 9 weeks. I went for my 12 week one this morning which I should've been 12+2 only to be told they couldn't find a heart beat and the baby died at 8 weeks! Not only that my notes say that the first scan measured 22.2mm and my scan today measured at 22.8mm? So there was obviously some growth? I'm so confused! If anyone has any experiences or advice please let me know as I'm driving myself crazy!

I'm so sorry flowers

I think different machines will equate different measurements to different gestational ages. Your baby was obviously alive at 9 weeks. From what I can see online 22.8 is very large for 8 weeks. It sounds as though you miscarried shortly after your scan.

Thank you for your response. I've started with the brownish blood now (TMI I know sorry!) it should pass soon but I'm booked for surgical procedure on Monday. 3 mc in less than a year! I'm only 23 xxx
