i had scan im 6weeks pregnant but no heart beat i got 2 go bk in weeks time im worried
Hello, just read your post - wishing you all the best, how devastating to be left in limbo, cannot begin to imagine how you are feeling. My heart goes out to you and my fingers are crossed xx
Hi I am going through the same thing. I have had two previous miscarriages and my consultant advised an early scan at 6 weeks...they found bleeding around the sac and no heartbeat, he said it wasn't looking to good. They would rescan in a week. I was left heartbroken! I spent the week in limbo not knowing what was going on expecting to bleed at any time. The week passed I went for my 2nd scan this time to be told by the sonographer that the bleeding was worse and still no heart beat was to be found. I saw the doctor after the scan and she then told me that they were going to rescan me in 9 days time as I had gone from measuring 5 weeks on my 1st scan to 6 on the 2nd so as far as they were concerned the pregnancy is developing..I may start bleeding she doesn't know. I really don't know what to expect or how to feel, Im scared to death I'm going to lose this baby too. I hope everything works out for you. x
First of all my heart and understanding goes out to anyone who is going through this situation. Its so tramatic and because it's so early in the pregnancy you may not have told anyone so its also isolating and you get the feeling that nobody understands why you're behaving so irratically.
I read lots of these boards when I went through a very similiar situation and they were really helpful and (slightly addictive) so I thought I would share my experience.
I don't think that it is the amount of weeks that makes a difference about hearing a heart beat I think it's the CRL size. I was about 5-6 weeks and my scan measured CRL 5.5mm and there was no heart beat. I read lot's of boards saying don't give up, it's still too early and that may be right in some cases, but I found a nursing website that said anything above 4mm with no heartbeat is "ominous" and anything above 5mm is classified as a MMC . It kind of gave me the strength I needed to ignore the pregnancy symptoms because they were giving me false hope. Its the waiting and not knowing between the two scans which destroys and drains you. I think that the best piece of advice that I could give would be to listen to your body and decide what it is telling you and stick with it. My body was telling me that I had miscarried as my pregnancy symptoms were fading. When I went for the second scan it was confirmed that there was no growth or heartbeat. It was horrible to hear and I was still devasted but I had already begun to say goodbye and make peace with the situation.
Again it's so hard because your mind, heart and body are all in conflict. Love and support goes out to every women in this situation. xx
