Tough post, tough week -- I am 11 weeks pregnant and went in for my first appointment with a midwife last week to check up on baby. She couldn't hear a heartbeat, so we scheduled for an ultrasound the following day.
The ultrasound showed that there was indeed a fetus with a heartbeat, but the fetus was measuring 6 weeks (instead of 10.5) and had the saddest little heartbeat of 75BPM. Whew. They told me that chances of miscarriage were very high and they that anticipated it within the week.
Has anyone had success with an outlook as poor as this? Has anyone gone on to have a healthy, normal baby with such a terrible prognosis?
Also, any thoughts on home miscarriage versus D and C would be so appreciated. Thanks for any thoughts or advice.
