Slow heartbeat normal growth

I'm wondering if anyone can. Share their experiences of this.
I had a scan last week that showed baby at 6weeks 0days with a heartbeat (midwifes words were it was going a dinger) so all seemed good.
We had another scan today one week later and baby is measuring 6weeks 6 days so about right but today she said that while there was a heartbeat it had slowed down a lot.
This was all by abdominal scan.
She has booked me in to come back on Monday but said that while there is a chance it could right itself it didn't look good.
I just want to see if anyone has been through something similar. I don't know whether to prepare myself for the worst or hope for the best.
I've had a mmc before baby stopped growing at 6w4d but to have seen a hb last week is making it so much harder this time around. I'm 27 and I thought I was fit and healthy. There didn't seem to be a reason for it last time.
I don't really know why I'm posting this. I guess I'm hoping someone can tell me it might still be OK.
