Follow up: 8th percentile is a little concerning, but you need to have follow up ultrasounds to watch feel growth. Now that you are out of the first trimester, your risk of miscarriage is extremely low.

See her doctor: Please take her to her doctor for re-evaluation and proper care. Continuous bleeding post miscarriage should not be managed at home. Its very important that she sees her doctor to avoid any further complications. Take care of yourself and your wife.

A 29-year-old female asked:

Is 117 BPM too slow for exactly 7 weeks? What is the chances that everything's ok? I'm so afraid i'll miscarry. Do you think i might lose the baby?

Not at all: The embryo's heart rate starts out at around 100 and then slowly increases until averages 120-160 at around 7-8 weeks. If you just turned 7 weeks, then this can be a totally normal heart rate. If you're concerned, consider asking for doctor or rn to repeat the ultrasound in a week or so to alleviate your worries. Good luck!

Not enough info..: Based on a lag in measurement of 4 days, I am not too concerned about what you are telling me. Also, a description of "cloudiness" is not specific but obviously was concerning to someone. If you could tell me the exact heartbeat, maybe that would be helpful.

Unknown: Many women miscarry and we don't ever discover why. Up to 30% of pregnancies end in the first 12 weeks. Of those pregnancies, a high number had genetic issues and thus the babies were not going to live. Obtaining monthly prenatal care at the obstetrician's office is the best way to ensure a healthy pregnancy.
