US Results - Thoughts and Prayers Requested (XP - June 2013)

I had my dating confirmation u/s today. Baby was measuring 8 weeks; I should be 9. While there is a HB, it was only 50bpm and should be around 120. They had me wait to talk with the doctor and she says it's likely the start of a miscarriage. They want me to come back in a week for another U/S to see what is going on. She basically made it sound like I get another U/S to confirm HB is gone and then they give me meds to induce bleeding. She said there is a chance the repeat U/S will indicate everything is fine, but that it's not likely. She was surprised that I haven't been having any cramps or bleeding yet.

Please send me all the thoughts and prayers you can. I'm just devasted at this point.

Thanks,
Christa

(((((((HUGS))))))) Christa, how are you doing? I have been praying.

I wanted to ask if you schedule another appointment and have not had any symptoms of a loss... can you request for an ultrasound at a hospital (higher level?) My reason is simply that I have had something similar happen in the past following an ultrasound at my doc's office where they thought that I was on my way to a loss (I had even had some spotting.) I just did not feel that way though and insisted on a higher level scan after another week. They fully expected a loss at that point but the higher level showed everything as fine.

Please know that I am not sharing this to hold out false hope. I DO hope (and pray) that all is well with your little one, but I just wanted you to know that it gave me a personal sense of peace either way to feel that I had a more definitive answer.

Let me know!

I'm not very good about checking all the boards, and I just saw this. Congrats on your pregnancy, and I am hoping all is well! Any updates since the original post??

T&P your way!
