had an u/s, supposed to be 7 weeks 4 days and measured 6 weeks and 1 day. the baby had a heartbeat of 110 (low for 8 wks). scheduled to have another u/s this wednesday. my doc said usually means chromosomal abnormality and will miscarry. does this always mean this? can anyone relate? does anyone have a more positive outcome?? what is a normal discrepancy in size?? confused and sad.

I developed slowely at first, but went for a 2nd u/s and development was on track - a lot can happen in a week! I'm crossing my fingers for you!

Don't get discourage! Alot can happen and the baby can be just fine. I am 24 weeks and measuring 20 weeks. It has gone to the extreme. Doctor's requested an Amnio to see if there was any issues. The test came back with no problems with the baby. I did a fetal echo, the baby's heart is fine. This week I did a placenta ultrasound to determine if the placenta was providing the proper nutrients. That test came out fine too. They moved me to high risk pregnancy, this just means that they will monitor the growth of the baby to ensure it follows the growth chart. My doctor is stunned. No one has the answer to this question. Why is the fetus measuring small?

Went for the u/s today and the hearbeat stopped. The baby actually grew a whole week and 3 days since last week. The heart must of just stopped beating. We go for the DNC tomorrow. Happens to so many. Thanks for all your prayers.
