What are the chances of miscarriage after seeing a heartbeat of 131 at 6 weeks 5 days when the embryo isn't growing properly only at 6 weeks 2 days?

Low: Actually a fetal pole measuring 6 weeks 2 days when you are 6 weeks 5 days pregnant is fine. Babies come in all sizes -plus or minus 5 days measurement (ahead or behind) is fine. Also not everyone has 28 day cycles and if you did not ovulate on day 14 of your cycle, dates may be measuring a little off. Were you told this was abnormal, because I do not think it is, unless i missing facts. ...Read more

My dr did see an amniotic sack with no heartbeat yet she wants to check again on mon but with my levels being low does this mean miscarriage?

Not Necessarily: She will be looking both for changes in the ultrasound and in increases in the betaHCG. You don't know anything at this point. I know it is hard to wait, but until you know what the numbers show and what the ultrasound shows you just don't know what is going to happen. I wish you nothing but good thoughts and increasing levels ...Read more

At 9.5 weeks with twins, heartbeats were 167 and babies are 2.7cm & 3cm. At this point, what are the chances of miscarrying one or both twins?

Fetal heartbeat detected at 5w 3days, slight spotting, very mild cramping. What is the chance of miscarriage?

Still too early: A pos fetal heart beat is great.
It can still miscarry, especially if the fetus has some small or genetic defects you cannot see with any ulltrasound.

IVF miscarraige: 1) congratulations on you becoming pregnant.

It happens: When the fetus dies, whatever the cause, the heart will stop beating.That is a result,not necessarily the cause of the loss.Some report as many as a 3rd of studied MC's are found to have a chromosome defect.If you have never had a successful pregnancy it would be reasonable to get checked out for any of a number of issues that prevent it. ...Read more

Could have a misdiagnosed miscarriage if no heartbeat seen at 7 weeks?

Could have a misdiagnosed miscarriage if no heartbeat seen at 7 weeks?

Probably not: If the baby (fetal pole) measures 7 weeks and there is no heartbeat seen, it is a miscarriage. The times when we aren't sure are if the fetal pole can't be clearly seen or if the dates are less than 6+ weeks. At that point, we might need to repeat the us in a week to be sure. Even if a miscarriage is diagnosed, you can take the time you need before doing anything about it like a d & c. ...Read more
