Question About Miscarriage

kerilynh - March 13

My friend found out a few weeks ago that she is pregnant. She had a miscarriage last year and when she went for the ultrasound this time they said she was measuring 5.5 weeks, and they couldn't see a heartbeat etc, when she "should" have been around 8 weeks. She is having blood work done to check her hcg levels. first was yesterday and the next set is tomorrow. Does it sound like she is miscarring again or is there still hope?

It doesn't sound promising if she's measuring that far behind. It's not over until the hcg levels are found to be low, though, but I wouldn't try to get her hopes up.

hey keri, this happens quite frequently and ends up fine half of the time and not so fine the other half (check out the first trimester board)---is it possible your friend just ovulated later than she thought? When I got PG and went in for my u/s the baby was ten days behind based on my LMP but I totally expected it b/c I ovulated late (I was temping and charting). If I hadn't known my exact ovulation date, I would have been very worried about m/c.
