Hi Janet, I am so sorry for the agony you must be going through. I felt the same way when I heard that something was wrong with my baby. Re: brown discharge - by itself, it is not that unusual, and would not be alarming unless you were losing pregnancy symptoms, having menstrual like cramps, and/or there were clots in it. Re: heart beat - if you are not sure about the dates, then it sounds a bit more hopeful. the heart beat can usually not be detected by transv____al u/s until about 6 weeks gestational age. Normally the heart beat should be able to be found at 7weeks on the screen. But, there are stories all the time about women who go in for an appt, heartbeat can't be found, then they spend the next week in complete torment, only to go back in and see a strong beating heart the following week. Don't panic yet! It is still early and things could still be ok. Hang in there, this is the most difficult part, I know. Keep me posted...
