    Miscarriage or more time needed?

    I had my first dr appointment yesterday (6wk/5days) and no heartbeat was detected. I was sent to get another us w a more sensitive machine and same result. Dr said I was probably going to miscarry and discussed d&c. I want to wait a week and try again before consenting to a d&c which my dr said was a reasonable suggestion. I have since read about ppl not hearing a heartbeat until later on...8-10 weeks. I want to be realistic and not get my hopes up. Anyone have a similar situation? I have had mild cramping the entire pregnancy and no spotting/bleeding. Thanks for anything you can offer.

    I am sorry to hear that , no did not had that experience yet but this second pregnancy is not going well for me. Progesterone are low, on pills for that. Ultrasound is scheduled for next Monday I will be 6wk and 5 days too that day. Cant feel any pregnancy first trimester symptoms and on top of that there is constant flutter I feel at same spot in right side. No clue what is going to happen. I do have doppler but those wont catch anything until 8 weeks really dont know what to tell you :( I pray it goes well for you.

    I dont think you should worry, at my first doctors appt they werent able to find a heartbeat until iwas 8weeks. I also had cramping which is normal because of our uterus expanding. Iknow its scary but hang in there a couple more weeks and im sure theyll find it:)

    How certain are you about your ovulation date? If you're off by even a few days, that could make all the difference at that point in a pregnancy. Absolutely wait a week before any permanent decisions are made. Go in for another ultrasound and if there's no growth, things would look pretty grim at that point. But it's possible your dates are off (not everyone ovulated on CD 14, even if they have a 28-day cycle). Hold on and keep your mind busy for the next week.
