I have several: concerns . The fetal heart beat is slower than the ideal of 140-160. Chorionic bumps are associated with abnormal development of the brain and/or spinal cord. Abnormally shaped or positioned sacs are associated with a higher risk of miscarriage. However, detecting a heart beat at this stage of pregnancy is a hopeful sign & you may get better news @ your follow up ultrasound. Best wishes!
