So today has been very stressful. I had some brown spotting and went for an early scan. I am meant to be 9 weeks pregnant according to my dates but baby only measured 6 weeks!?. They couldn't find heartbeat so did an internal which is relatively normal for 6 weeks and I have to go back in for another scan in 2 weeks time. Is this even possible or have I miscarried. Apparently the scan didn't show signs of miscarriage but I know when I ovulated and me and the husband only did the deed around this time.. I also had a positive test the day of my missed period. I'm devastated but wishing for some hope.
I think truly only time will tell. You might just have a bit of spotting and go on to have a great pregnancy , but sometimes the baby is not developing properly and a miscarriage is inevitable. I've had 3 miscarriages, all devastating , I also bled all the way through my 4th and had a perfectly healthy baby. My friend was told in her 1st pregnancy that there was no heartbeat early in the pregnancy and went to full term. Baby was fine. I hope everything is fine for you, if you can try to rest and not worry too much. i know that is difficult if not impossible but really there is nothing you can do. XXX
If you are sure of your dates and baby measured 3 weeks behind that with no visible heartbeat, I'm afraid I would prepare yourself for the worst. I'm sorry.
The NHS will do a second scan just to absolutely rule out the possibility that you have your dates wrong and it is a viable continuing pregnancy since 6 weeks is right on the cusp of being able to see a Hb, but three weeks behind is a lot and at 9 weeks a heartbeat would be expected to be seen.
I had my first scan at what I thought was just over 7 weeks... I was measuring just under 5 weeks obv no hb. I knew my exact dates. I went back a week later, hb was there but still measuring earlier than my dates. On my 12 week scan, I was exactly as I calculated with my dates. Try not to worry x
Just to update. Since Friday bleeding has got heavier and bright red with cramping. Bit like a period. Epau have said they still want to see me a week on Friday unless the bleeding gets very heavy and I pass clots. They still haven't said it's a miscarriage but deep down I know it is.
