3 pregnancies and been DX with choronic hematoma all 3 xs delivered 2 xs no complications, last ended at 16 weeks no heart beat will it happen again ?

3 pregnancies and been DX with choronic hematoma all 3 xs delivered 2 xs no complications, last ended at 16 weeks no heart beat will it happen again ?

Hard to say: Usually chorionic hematomas do not cause miscarriages. They typically regress and do not cause problems. Did they check the chromosomes of the 16 week miscarriage? Maybe there was just a problem with the baby and the hematoma was an incidental finding? It's reassuring that you had two other pregnancies with hematoma that did fine. I would recommend staying away from aspirin. ...Read more

I had my 1st ultrasound at 7w4d and the baby measured 5.0mm (6w1d) with a faint heart beat of about 100bpm.What are my chances of a healthy pregnancy?

Reasonably good but: Your "chances of a viable pregnancy" are reasonably good but predicting a "healthy pregnancy" does not and can not depend on a single ultrasound exam performed at 6 weeks. A follow up sonogram in 2 to 3 weeks and an obstetrical evaluation should help you get an answer to your concern. ...Read more

How many weeks does baby have heartbeat??? Because I got this heartbeat monitor and hear things could it be sign of pregnency????

Doubtful: you can hear a baby's heartbeat at 20 weeks gestation with a stethoscope. The heartbeat is detectable much earlier, maybe 10 weeks or earlier with ultrasound. Your heartrat rus 60-100bpm, and a babies will be 120-140bpm. I doubt that you are hearing a baby. ...Read more
