2 Bumps

Did I or will I miscarry?

Went for my first appointment today. I am 12 weeks pregnant and have had some slight spotting with no cramps. They did not find a heartbeat with the doppler. She did an internal exam and said my uterus is at about 12 weeks but is soft and should be firm. This is my 4th pregnancy and I was able to hear the heartbeat at 9 weeks with my other children. I am a thin girl so I believe we definitely should have heard it. I am scheduled for an ultrasound tomorrow. Any thoughts or advise?

  • Unfortunately, I agree... you should've heard something by 12 weeks. However, i heard my 2 dds really early (9 weeks)and with this one we couldn't get it at 10 weeks:( Good luck momma!
