Hey girls, I need some advice. Went for an ultrasound at 6 weeks and my Doctor said everything looked perfect. At 7 weeks and a bit, i started spotting. Was admitted overnight for observation because of my previous mc, and injected with progesterone. Now on oral progesterone tablets, and my last ultrasound 7.5 weeks they said everything looked good with the baby, it was growing. But they still cant detect the heartbeat with the abdominal ultrasound. I'm still spotting lightly, but the progesterone seems to be keeping that under control. My cervix is closed so i dont know where the bleed is coming from. Highly stressed, but praying so hard and begging God not to take baby away... My next appointment is on thursday. Will be 8 weeks and 4 days. My doctor told me that it worries him he cant see it, another doctor told me to wait it out. I'm so lost...:(
Spotting and No heartbeat detected on abdominal ultrasound. Unsure and sad:(
Thanks for the encouragement. My DH and i have abstained since the positive hpt, just to be on the safe side... But i did overexert myself the day before the spotting started, Running around and going for a brisk walk uphill. They did not want to do a transvaginal the day of the ultrasound because of the spotting. But Doctors can be prophets of doom and gloom sometimes:D , One says it should be seen, the other one says it could go either way, .... Its up to God i guess. Its growing...so thats my hope.
Hang in there!! Spotting can be very common. It is still early and the baby is growing, so that is a very good sign. I can't imagine the stress you're enduring right now, and my heart is going out to you. I've had 3 losses, but it was clear I was losing the baby each time. :( I'm hopeful that you are just having some bumps on the road to a very healthy pregnancy and baby. Rest as much as you can, and hang in there. (((HUGS)))
Don't lose hope! I think that it is still early to see that little hb on an abdominal u/s. I went in at 6w2d for a vaginal u/s and we saw the hb, but it didn't just jump right out, you had to look for it to see it and I had to be really really still for her to pick it up and measure the hb.
Okay Now i'm just plain confused... On the 4th of april My doctor measured the pregnancy at 6 week 1 day. Now on the 19th of april, he measures it at 7 weeks 4 days. Still no heartbeat, but he seems okay about it. Did a transvaginal u/s this time. told me to come back in two weeks...:) not sure what to think
