Fetus Growing But No Heartbeat

0 Replies
Celine77 - June 12

Hi everyone, I am new to this forum and I'm seeking for answers. I am currently 8.5 weeks pregnant. I did an u/s scan on 5 June 06 and my fetal pole was 12.1mm. Yesterday (10 june 06), i did another u/s and it has grown to 20.8mm. But NO heartbeat was detected. I started spotting a few days ago and it got heavier yesterday. From the u/s, my cervix was closed and the fetus is growing but there is no heartbeat. I am puzzled - How can my fetus grow without a heartbeat? My doc gave me a progesterone injection and asked me to repeat the u/s 1 week later to decide if a D&C is necessary. What are your thoughts on this? Please help... anyone?
