No heartbeat on ultrasound scan?

Went in at six weeks, perfectly normal growing baby, heartbeat was fine. Had a minor car accident exactly a week later then one week after that had another scan for 8weeks .. was told embryo and sac is there fine but no heartbeat and is a little small for 8 weeks. Could this be wrong ? Had anyone heard of any stories of a re scan showing a heartbeat some time later ? Doctor has given me a re scan for the following day (tomorrow ) for a second confirmation of miscarriage. Really hoping they're wrong as it's my first pregnancy after 3 years of trying sad

I really hope you get a good answer today. I'm sorry you're going through this. But I would prepare for the worse and be happy if they find a heartbeat. You are stronger than you think. Xxx 💐💐💐

I hope all goes well. But if the worst happens, please don't focus on the car accident. That won't have made it happen. I'm sure you know the statistics for early miscarriage - it was nothing you did, honestly.

Sorry to hear this.

I do not think anyone should speculate or add to your worries.

Best of luck with your second scan. We are here if you need to speak to us after.

So sorry you're going through this.

My first pregnancy I had a scan at 7 weeks and was told everything looked perfect and strong heartbeat. I miscarried at 9 weeks. It's awful but it's one of those things we have no control over. I have everything crossed for you.
