  • I'd ask for another US -- within the next week ...sometimes they are wrong...if still no heart rate (ask for 2 people to confirm independently then you might need a D&C

  • Have them do another ultrasound to make sure and they can give you a shot to help you pass it. Sorry!

  • I would wait til after you were 12 weeks because I have always been told that you CAN"T hear the heart beart UNTIL then. So I think it was way too early! GL

  • I am sorry to hear about your loss. Heartbeat is supposed to start at 6wks. If your doctor did an ultrasound, I am sure they could tell how far along you were. What did your doctor say about your situation?
