Did they say what baby was measuring? If baby measured 7 weeks then there should be a heartbeat and that would most likely be a bad sign, but if baby measured behind then maybe you're not as far along as you thought and it's just too early to see the heartbeat.

Sorry about your loss... Same thing happened with me but I didnt wait that long after two scans I knew it was true... I had the d&c done the next day cause I had no bleeding no signs something was wrong n I just wanted it over with...

I was at 7 weeks before the dr could see the heartbeat, but it didn't register as a heartbeat. He just knew what it looked like and he knew that's what it was. Didn't hear the heartbeat until 9 weeks. Could just be that you aren't actually 7 weeks developed. i know a girl who waas supposed to be 14 weeks but when she had a better ultrasound the baby was only 10 weeks developed.

How horrible for you to say "Sorry for your loss" before she even knows if she's had one or not. :?


OP, if the baby appeared small, perhaps you are not as far along as you think and a heartbeat cannot be detected yet. I wish you the best.

yup I was 8 weeks and had bleeding and no heart beat was found. they told me I miscarried and I chose to pass the baby naturally. A few months later I still hadnt gotten my period back went to to do an u/s to make sure everything passed and to confirm if I needed a D&C and low and behold was a 26-28 week gestation little girl!

WOW! I don't think I will ever get a D&C then...... Sounds like the Dr jumped a little ahead of himself...?

I was told at 9 weeks that there was no heartbeat and I was going to miscarry....My doc even wanted to schedual a DNC...I waited and didn't miscarry...at 10.5 weeks I went back and they found a heart beat...told me not to get my hopes up as my HCG levels weren't doubling...well...I am now almost 7 months along w a baby boy...so far so good...keep your hopes up and wait it out...don't make any decisions yet!
