I had a neck twitch or, which I could feel with hand and I think I could have seen it move, the move was once close with my heart rate. HR was normal?
Probably you're..: Feeling the pulse in your carotid artery. This pulse can always be felt if you press your fingers over the right spot in your neck. Sometimes it's visible as well. Unless the person has a serious heart rhythm problem, it's always in sync with the heartbeat. Well, there's a slight delay, but most people can't detect that. In any case, it's reassuring to know that you have a pulse. ...Read more

Irregular heartbeat and rapid heart rate. Feels like someone's hand is squeezing around my heart. 24/F/Obese many dr trips say all is ok but worried?

Ultrasound measured foetus as 6 weeks 2 days one full week after measuring 5 weeks 6 days (just sac). Heart rate 126 I think miscarriage is likely?
Not necessarily: The fetus is now off by 4 days and the accuracy of us is about 4 days. Since the other measurement was the sac and this is the fetus, the different measurement may examine it all. The sac and the fetus do not always match exactly. The heart rate is normal so likely all is well. In any event, the next scan will be very helpful. Stay positive as these results to not suggest imminent miscarriage. ...Read more
Had a f/u ultrasound yesterday at 8w1d and baby now measures 7w4d where as last week (exactly one week ago) was measuring 6w3d. 154 heart rate and baby looks "perfect" according to both tech and ob but my gestational sac is an irregular shape. Tech said g

7 weeks pregnant. Scan today baby measuring only 7.8 heart rate slow. Will I miscarry or could it be late implantation?
Early...: I think it is too early to tell. If your doctor has a planned follow up test please get that done as recommended. I don't think we can predict right now what will happen until the pregnancy progresses a little more. If you start having vaginal bleeding or all the symptoms associated with pregnancy are not present any longer you should be seen immediately. ...Read more
I have a question regarding measuring heart rate. Can this be measured around the eye/temple area? And will this be an accurate measurement place?
Sounds fine: Anywhere in the body where one feels a steady pulse is fine to count the heart rate from. Technically speaking, when people count that way, they are counting the PULSE rate, not the heart rate. In normal people, the pulse rate equals the heart rate, so that is not a problem. In certain heart disorders, however, the heart may have a faster rate than the pulse, meaning some heartbeats don't pulse. ...Read more
I went in for a second ultrasound at 8 weeks and was told the fetus was measuring 6 weeks with a low heart rate of 86. What chance of miscarriage?
A precise number. .: .... or chance of miscarriage can not be estimated from these reports, but you are right to be concerned about a low heart rate and small fetal size. Both of these ultrasound associated findings can be interpreted as risks for impending miscarriage. I understand waiting and hoping is difficult...I do hope this is just a temporary blip and all will be well. Stay in close touch with your provider. ...Read more
What is a growth scan for in pregnancy? Will they check my baby's heart? I wanna know the heart rate! What will they measure in this scan? I'm 34weeks
Growth scan: A growth scan is an ultrasound to see that the baby is growing appropriately. They will take various measurements from which they will compare to those from a previous ultrasound to be sure they have grown enough and not too much. The baby's heart beat should be checked at each visit and you can ask what it is even without a scan. It should vary just as yours does. Hope this helps. Best wishes. ...Read more
