Oh, Mama, so sorry for what you are going through. Have you spoken to the doctor yet? Just want to know if they gave you no reason for hope or if that is just what your heart tells you.
I don't want to give you false hope, but I am still hoping for this bean to hang on. How many days ago was your first scan? Obviously there has been at least some growth and an increase in HR. I found this about heart rates:
Starting at week 5 the fetal heart will accelerate at a rate of 3.3 beats per day for the next month.
The fetal heart begins to beat at approximately the same rate as the mothers, which is 80 to 85 bpm. Below illustrates the approximate fetal heart rate for weeks 5 to 9, assuming a starting rate of 80
Week 5 starts at 80 and ends at 103 bpm
Week 6 starts at 103 and ends at 126 bpm
Week 7 starts at 126 and ends at 149 bpm
Week 8 starts at 149 and ends at 172 bpm
At week 9 the fetal heartbeat tends to beat within a range of 155 to 195 bpm.
The fetal heart rate will begin to decrease and generally will fall within the range of 120 to 160 bpm by week 12.
Based of that it doesn't seem totally hopeless, does it?
I have been through almost exactly what you are dealing with once. It was AWFUL. I had a scan at 6 weeks and 7 weeks. Both times baby was measuring small and both times heartrate was well below normal and they told me miscarriage chance was very high.
They didn't do another scan til 20 weeks and that was horrible to wait and wonder about growth. Of course we could hear the heart rate through doppler once I hit 10 weeks, It slowly moved to the low end of normal. But I was devastated again at the 20 week ultrasound because she was measuring 3.5 weeks behind and we knew the dates were right from the early scans. They also found very large dual choroid plexus cysts which aren't usually a problem in themselves, but can be a sign of a genetic problem especially with the other signs she had. They recommended a level two ultrasound and amniocentisis. I had to wait just a week for that next scan. Longest week of my life with a lot of heart felt prayers. The neonatologist spent a long time on the scan, He carefully measured and checked so many things. At the very end he said, "Don't ask for an explanation because we don't have one. The baby is measuring perfectly fine, the heartrate was normal, and both cysts are gone". It truly was a miracle for me. The rest of the pregnancy was smooth going and baby was born perfectly healthy.
Hoping so hard for you! Keep us updated!
