I am 13 weeks pregnant and my last scan was at 6 weeks where no heartbeat was found but they said it was alive so im not sure what that means. I have had barely an symptoms of pregnancy maybe 3 days of morning sickness and a little constipation. Could I have had a m/c and not known about it?

Do they mean it was just too early to hear the heartbeat yet? When is your next appointment. Hopefully you will have a heartbeat then!

Laura, this is a very good question. I m/c in March and it was a complete shock. I had an ultrasound in February (8 weeks) and dr saw heartbeat, said good chance of full term, then at 12 week ultrasound, he found no heartbeat and growth had stopped at 8th week. I am pg again, just 4 weeks, I am nervous, but ultimately, if you are doing the things you have control over, that's all you can do. My Dr. advised taking a baby aspirin per day, he said they don't know why, but that seems to help prevent miscarriage, take your vitamins etc. Best of luck!!

Im not really sure if it was too early I was 6 weeks and 4days, I was really anoyed because the woman who did the scan didnt tell me anything, I think she thought I was going to have an abortion which I definatly wansn't. The only thing I saw was blue flashing on the screen and I didnt know what that was. I have an appointment with my midwife on tuesday so hopefully I will get some answers.
