tonilee7 - June 14

I went in for a scan today feotus measured 6 weeks 3 days and the sac measured 7 weeks 3 days........and they couldnt find a heart beat.....docs varified what i already thought......but is there a chance that they made a mistake or is there a chance that the feotus is alive just smaller than the sac and just hasnt got a heart beat yet????? Has this happened to anyone else???? if so please let me know, as I do not want to have a d/c until i am absolutely sure that there is no hope................

hi tonilee7 - i'm so sorry for what you're going through. it is possible that it's just measuring smaller or that you got your date of ovulation wrong and that you're not as far along as you and the doc thought. it's also possible that this is bad news for you. do you still have any pg. symptoms? have you had any spotting? how far along did you think you were? how sure of those dates are you? why did you think this was not viable? when you see the doctor again, he should check you hCG numbers to see if they've fallen from your last check up... that, combined with a new scan would really be quite convincing. hopefully though, it will just confirm a healthy pg is underway... my fingers are crossed for it to turn out well for you. check out the "blighted ovum" thread for a story like yours with a happy outcome... try to stay postiive (very hard, i know) and know that folks here are thinking of you. good luck and best best wishes...
