Ultrasound results ?: An U/S at "11 plus" weeks of pregnancy which shows a "normal fetus and fetal heart beat" is a positive sign of viable pregnancy. Sometimes the placenta does not produce sufficient progesterone, so see the OB physician caring for your daughter , who may prescribe progesterone to supplement the placental production.
