Could it be a mistake?

I went in for an ultrasound today and on the 2nd of this month i was told i was 5 weeks and 0 days when they did the ultrasound today they said 7weeks and 4 days and the heart wasn't beating... they said the baby is dead and i just haven't had a miscarriage yet but could they be wrong, could it have just been too early to catch it? right now i just feel like dying. i know the doctor is probably right but i just wanted some hope...

  • Oh sweetheart, I am so sorry to hear this. My heart just cries for you. I don't know if it could be a mistake. I sure hope that they are wrong and your baby is fine. But if it is true, just know that there is a reason for all things and there is always hope to have another go at having a baby of your own.
    God Bless,

  • Do not give up hope until you have all the facts maybe even get a second opinion. Just brace yourself either way. {{{ hugs}}}

  • That's how far along I was when I lost my first pregnancy, and what they told me (I had a D&C cause I couldn't miscarry on my own). I hope things aren't what they seem for you, I know how hard it is. =[ Good luck and praying for you.

  • I don't know if you can even hear the babies heart beat that early, I would do some research. I am really sorry to hear this and hope things get better.
