Ultrasound Today Please Respond

m - August 2

I just went in today for my 8 week ultrasound. The baby is measuring 8.2 wks which is correct. The heart beat is 171. At the 6wk ultrasound it was 109 so its increasing. But the ultrasound doc said the area around the baby appeared to be small for the age of the baby. What does that mean? I'm going crazy. Is this a sign that the baby will m/c? I m/c in march and had an ectopic in jUne. I'm so nervous. Please has anyone had a similar experience? Any input would be appreciated.

M - it sounds like things are going well. Don't stress yet. I have not been in the exact same situation but I have heard that a strong heartbeat is always a very positive sign. Did the U/S tech give the results to your dr.? Can you call the office and get further clarification? Atleast to put your mind at ease...

Hi m. I agree with Allison. It's a good sign that the heartbeat is strong. When they told you that the area around the baby appeared small what were they talking about? Is it the sac? Is there not enough amniotic fluid? I think that you better call your doctor to clarify and to put your mind at ease. It's normal to be nervous after all the things that you went through. I don't think that you are at risk to miscarry. Good luck to you and take care.

Thanks for the response. My doc didnt' seem to think it was anything to worry about just yet. I have another u/s in 10 days. The report didnt' state if it was the amniotic fluid it really wasn't clear. I even think the doc was a little unsure. She said the baby's growth and heart rate are good so she can't say its not going well but she cant say either way.
