Slow Heart Rate At 6 7 Weeks

pants41 - December 9

I wanted to share my story to give some hope to all those worried expectant mommas carrying babies with slow heartbeats. With this pregnancy, I had my first ultrasound at 6w3d. The heartbeat was 97. They said not to worry, maybe it had just started beating, but to come back in a week. At 7w3d, heartbeat was 67. I was told to expect a miscarriage soon. They said to come back in a week if I didn't miscarry first. I held on to hope, though it was extremely hard to do so. My husband and I prayed a great deal. We knew we really needed a miracle. It was a very long week. The next ultrasound was at 8w3d. Heartbeat was 101....we were shocked, and so grateful. They still wanted me back in a week just to make sure things kept progressing well. At 9w5d, the heartbeat was 163bpm. I know my story is not the norm, and I believe we did receive a miracle, but I wanted to share it to give a little hope to fearful mommas! I have had two previous miscarriages and a loss at 23 weeks, so I KNOW the fear and worry. I live with it, and I don't know if it will subside until I get to hold the little one in my arms. And then there's a whole host of NEW worries! There is hope, every little life is different!

HI Janet, I am in exactly the same spot as you. I have just had a scan - should be 7.2 weeks, showing 5.3 with hr 77. Likelihood of miscarriage. I am unable to get in until next week for another scan - which would be 2 weeks from initial scan. Very overwhelming. We are lucky too, have a 3 year old boy, one pregnancy lost 18months ago with chrome issues, 18 months later we are facing this. I am 39 and feeling my age is such a restriction. And I detest those that say argue we should not be holding off having children so late - I didn't choose to wait this long. It's just the way things work out..... YES, I'm tired, and frustrated.... thanks for everyone in sharing their stories. Nice to know we are not alone. xo

Hi ladies I am new to this forum, I know this thread is old but I am looking for some positive outcomes. After our dating scan yesterday I should be 7w5d but the HR was only 62bpm, this is so low and I am so freaked out. I need to hear some positive outcomes pls! We are going back in 9 days to see if anything has changed but my ob said to prepare for miscarriage

I know these posts are really old but I read your posts as I was going through the same thing. Last week I went in for my 7 week ultrasound and they said the heartbeat was only 80bpm. everything else was measruing correctly. I worried myself sick for a whole week thinking for sure it meant miscarriage.. Well I went in today at 8 weeks 1 day and the hearbeat was 160bpm!!!!! We are beyond thrilled. Just wanted to share a success story.. There is hope, think positive thoughts.

Hi ladies, I've been pouring through this site since my first ultrasound yesterday. I'm 7w2d, measured correctly but the OB had a hard time detecting hb. She brought in another dr. who detected hb but said it was very low. They didn't tell me what it was; I could see it blipping on the monitor, slowly, but they said it needed to be around 140 and blipping rapidly. Needless to say, the dr. advised me to "not share the news with anyone" as the prognosis was threatened miscarriage/abortion, then patted my arm with sympathy, stated, "I'm sorry" and left the room. My OB was much more rea__suring but still advised me to prepare for miscarriage; I was not prepared to leave this appt. to prepare for a miscarriage! I went and got blood work done so am waiting on the results. I still feel the symptoms of pregnancy - things smell bad, floaty feelings, food is either desirable or disgusting, I'm tired all the time; though b___st soreness has gone down significantly. I'm not ready to mourn and have been doing some homework around hormone levels if this is the case. If low hb is due to a chromosomal abnormality then there really is not much I can do about that and that I can begin to accept, with heartbreak of course. This is my first pregnancy at 39, planned and wanted dearly by my partner and I who have been trying for well over a year. I have told several friends so as to create a supportive circle, which is so important no matter what happens. I really hate that the dr. advised me to not tell anyone, I just chalk that up to the medical lens which often dismisses the emotional world and needs of women (and children) mostly (sorry if I offend anyone here, it's just that has been my experience and education in this area is severely lacking). I'm off to make a wild yam tea and get a good walk in, visualize, and perhaps shed some tears. I'm thinking of all of you in a similar position and sending loving thoughts. Thanks for posting your experiences, it feels important and supportive. I'll keep you all updated as the days pa__s. I have another appt on Monday the 30th. Love.
