Need thoughts and prayers -- comments welcome -- SCAN UPDATE
I had my first scan today; I should be at least 6 weeks + 4 days. Baby measured 5+5. There is a HB, but the U/S tech said it was hard to measure; she is guessing it is about 100. I can't remember what the exact yolk sac size was; I know it was 4.x - I think she said 4.6 or 4.8. I've attached a photo, but it is mostly just the yolk sac:
I'm in limbo waiting for a doctor to review the scan results; they said I likely wouldn't get a call until tomorrow. UGH! The tech said she is guessing they will have me come back in a few days for another scan.
Please send me all the thoughts and prayers you can muster. Anyone with more information / experience; I'm open to feedback. Trying to stay positive since I know the scan can measure off by a bit and at least the HB was above 90 (which I've read is good). I think I remember reading it starts out slow and builds up. But, it's still so hard after our loss we had in November. I'm trying so hard to not cry and remain positive.
Google info I found
The lower the fetal heart rate is around 6-8 weeks the higher the miscarriage rate can be predicted.A fetal heart rate below 70 beats per minute around 6-8 weeks usually predicts a miscarriage. A fetal heart rate below 90 beats per minutes is associated with a 86% miscarriage rate, and a fetal heart rate below 120 bpm is associated with a approximately 50% miscarriage rate.
