Isn't 8 weeks a little early to hear the heartbeat????? Let alone to get a sonogram!!!! MY SIL will be traveling over seas for the next 10 weeks and my only guess is that the doc wanted to get it done early for some reason.
Anyway, I reasured her that 8 weeks is too, too early to hear a heart beat and that she needs a new doc... what do you say.
I hope it turns out to be a false alarm for your SIL.
We did hear the heartbeat, but from what I've heard, it's fairly normal to not find it from 6-8 wks. I'm hoping for the best for your SIL.
Babies do develop differently, and her dates can be off. But yeah, I'd go to the second ultrasound and find out what is up before going out of town long term.
