Early Scans After Miscarriage
See below: The ealiest signs are loss or lack of a fetal pole and collapse of hour-glassing of the gestational sac.
Very premature is a condition in which a baby is delivered between 28 and 31 weeks' gestation. Depending on how premature, how sick, and how lucky or unlucky a baby is, he can get brain problems, cerebral palsy, blindness, deafness, developmental problems, learning disabilities, severe lung diseases, infection and loss of some intestines, etc... Babies who are only moderately premature usually ...Read more
I had a miscarriage 2m ago I am worried it will happen again this pregnancy is it possible to go for a early scan I'm 5 wks?
Are internal scans safe in early pregnancy? Some women reported a miscarriage days after scan insisting there is harm but not yet proven. I'm worried
No evidence of harm: After several decades of use and of research, there is still no scientific evidence that ultrasonography whether internal or external is harmful to human embryos and fetuses. The anecdotal stories of some women "who reported a miscarriage days after scan" unfortunately can not be viewed as reliable or scientific. Pregnancy losses are sadly very common (up to 15-25%) without prior "internal scans"
Depends: It depends on the desires of the patient and the size of the fetus and sac. Its ot technically too early but some women prefer to "pass" and smaller pregnancy naturally. Occasionally this process is longer than expected and she will request a D&C . Larger pregnancies > 7-8weeks may cause a lot of bleeding and trips to the er so often a D&C is offered.
Possibly: A D&C can be done at any stage, but if the pregnancy had not progressed to a point where a sac or embryo had been developing, then a D&C may not have been necessary.
Had scan at 18+6 weeks everything with my boy was good measuring accurately good hb good growth what would be the chance for me to have miscarriage?
Unlikely: Most miscarriages occur in the first trimester. Unless you have had prior obstetrical problems or severe health issues odds are in your favor.
Bleeding . . .: A positive pregnancy test with bleeding, particularly heavy bleeding with cramps, is most suggestive. If pregnancy symptoms like fatigue, urinary frequency, breast tenderness, nausea, and vomiting suddenly improve, or if none of those symptoms appear despite the positive pregnancy test, you should be suspicious.
Several: Signs of an early miscarriage include your symptoms of pregnancy, like breast tenderness, fatigue, nausea, etc., going away. The more obvious signs are bleeding. There are some women that have little to no symptoms of pregnancy and everything is fine. Also, up to 23% of women bleed in early pregnancy, and again, everything can be fine. An ultrasound should be able to let you know things are ok.
Sometimes: If it is really early (chemical pregnancy) you may only know through lab tests that you were pregnant.
Not necessarily: Do you know why you miscarried, and how many times has it happened?. You are not getting younger (profile says 39), so I would suggest two pre-natal consults. One with a geneticist, and one with a fetal-maternal medicine specialist. You live in LA so many excellent docs of both of these specialties available in your area. They can guide you through this assuming you want a child...
Not necessarily: If you have had a # of early miscarriages ask your physician to evaluate for any pattern.
What kind of people do NOT have normal healthy children or any children at all after 3 early miscarriages ?
Recurrent Pregnancy : Loss (RPL), 3 consecutive miscarriages at < 20 wks. gestation, makes the risk of another miscarriage ~ 31-33%, but risk depends on maternal age, previous term pregnancy or not & cause of RPL. Evaluation for genetic, endocrine, blood-clotting , infectious, immune & anatomical problems is explained on obgyn.ucla.edu/body.cfm?id=200, except Chromosomal Microarray has replaced Chromosome Analysis.
Why do I keep having early miscarriages? I have had two. The second was at five and a half weeks along. What could this mean?
See a REI specialist: You still have a chance of a healthy pregnancy 'on your own', but after 2 or more miscarriages we do tests to find out why. Possible causes include autoimmune conditions like antiphospholipid antibodies, blood clotting disorders, low egg supply, problems in the uterus like fibroids or a uterine septum, hormonal problems, or male or female genetic problems. Get checked out by a rei specialist.
What list of tests could be helpful now (I'm going for my DnC in 3 days) & after the DnC that would help investigate the cause of 2 early miscarriages?
Miscarriages: The limit of what I can put in this response is not enough but I found a good link on the internet you can check out. http://www.mainlinefertility.com/specialties/repetitive-miscarriage/
Never: Miscarriage can occur any time during pregnancy, it can occur so early, you may not have had pregnancy diagnosed yet. The first trimester (3 months) is likeliest time for miscarriage. See prior answers about this topic.
