I just had my 9 week ultrasound and they could not find a heartbeat. I am going back in 4 days for a second opinion/ultrasound. Has anyone had any exeprience with this and had a postive result?

I hope that is the case or maybe I am not as far along as they thought. I just needed some positive ideas to make it through the weekend. Thanks for the info.

You can't hear the heartbeat using a hand held doppler until 11 weeks but you can see a heartbeat on an ultrasound screen as early as 6 weeks (if not earlier). Good luck to you.

I just had a v____al ultrasound last week on what was my 7th week and no heartbeat. I was told that maybe I ovulated late and not as far along as I thought. Went back a week later (yesterday) and no change. I was told that the baby never developed a heartbeat and I essentially miscarried. Good luck to you!

Had my first u/s at 7½ weeks. Saw the very strong heartbeat. Going for my second u/s tomorrow at 9½ weeks--hopefully the baby's growing as it should.

I am going through the same sort of situation right now. I had an ultrasound. The baby is measuring 6 1/2 weeks, which should be right, but there was no heartbeat. I have to wait 10 days and have another ultrasound.

Have them check your HCG hormone level. It should double each day. That is another way they can check to see how your pregnancy is going.

This has happened me this week too.I am 8 weeks pregnant and the doc found no heartbeat so I have to go back next week to have another one.But I was sent for hCG test to check levels.The doc said to me "Do you feel pregnant?"And you know what -I don't.He will take me in for a D&C next week if no change.This is my 3rd misscarriage.It is the waiting this time taht is hard.Good Luck to you.

I did my ultrasound the first time yesterday. doctor said the fetus is 9 1/2 weeks with no heard beat. they don't think it will continue growing. should I go with D&C or just wait for natural miscarriage to happen. tks

To those that have lost their babies on this thread - my deepest sympathies. January 15 I had the same thing (baby stopped developing at 6.5 weeks, m/c at 8.5) and hubby and I held each other crying all night. For about a month I couldn't let go of my dreams for my new baby - my hubby's first. We then found ourselves pg again in March, and now 31 weeks, we are so grateful for this miracle, and wanted to pa__s it on because when we lost our first I was afraid to even try again - didn't think I could face another m/c. Now I am very glad we tried again. Again, deepest sympathies and best wishes to you all.

I know you can get pregnent again maybe 2 weeks after the misscarriage taken place. But if I want to reduce next misscarriage, when will be a good time? should I wait for example, 6 months, just for body to recover from last misscarriage??

i had a mc around the begining of this year and I waited about 4 months to get pregnant again I wanted to give my body a chance to recover and I also started taking pre-natal vits and I am happy to say I am now 20wks along in very healthy pregnancy so it would prolly be best to wait a short time however long you feel is best and then try again...good luck..take care
