No heartbeat

Dec 20, 2009 - 6 comments

Feeling extremely upset. Had 6 week + 3 day scan this morning and the doctor
told us to expect the worst since there was no heartbeat.
Havent had any spotting or anything and cant really believe it. Its been such a hard road
with our second IVF round. My husband keeps saying that it may be okay,since we
are booked in for another scan next week.
The doctor told me to go and get some pads to get ready for a possible miscarriage. :o(

Keep your head up. You never know.  I'll be praying for you. I just had a 2nd ultrasound on Thursday and blood work too which showed that I miscarried.  Lots of luck to you!

I will keep you and baby in my thoughts & prayers! Dont lose hope, sometimes its too early to find the HB...my Dr wont give me an u/s until i hit 8 weeks, he said sometimes its too early ((i was 6w4d)) to find the HB and didnt want me to get discouraged. I hope everything goes well at your next appt!

I've read here many times that 6 weeks can be early to see/hear a heartbeat. I would not give up yet. There have been several women here whose docs couldn't find a heartbeat at 6 weeks and then found one the next week. I truly think there's a really good chance that everything will be just fine.

ohhhh, that doctor is horrible!!!!! im sorry, thats pathetic when they are so heartless and treat you like a 'patient' rather then a person!!!! it is only 6 wks, dont worry just yet, if you were 9 wks and there was no heartbeat then that might be a prob, but you are only 6 wks, give it some time

Wow- that doctor sounds pretty insensitive.  I'm praying everything goes well with your little one and you get a chance to tell that MD that they were wrong!!

I really would try not to worry at 6 weeks (easier said than done)-  Did they do bloodwork or anything else in the meantime?   Hang in there!

Thanks everyone for your comments, no they did not do bloodwork but said we need to sit down and have a chat about D&C next week!  I have had some cramps and slight spotting so its not looking good, but still holding out a glimmer of hope.
