Prayers Please (pregnancy mentioned) **Update

Posted by   + Show Post

I have my early ultrasound tomorrow morning and honestly, I'm so scared to go. Last pregnancy I didn't see a heartbeat at the early ultrasound at 7+2 weeks, and even though the doctor said it was fine, it ended in a miscarriage a few weeks later. At exactly 6 weeks, it's fully possible that I won't see a heartbeat and it will be normal, but I know it'll send me into a panic. I want this baby so badly, and I'm so afraid of going through another loss.

For those willing to pray, please pray that my baby is healthy and showing a heartbeat! I'll update when I get home tomorrow.

UPDATE: Well, it didn't go quite as I was hoping, but it didn't go terribly either. I'm not really sure what to think, I've mostly been crying a lot from being scared of repeating what happened before. 

We went in and found a yolk sac, but the doctor couldn't find a baby for a while. He asked me if it was possible that I'm only 3-4 weeks pregnant. I said no, I got a positive test over two weeks ago, I'm supposed to be 6 weeks. He kept looking, and said he found what might be a baby, which would measure around 5w,4d. No heartbeat yet. He said it could go either way, it's really early so he can't tell me much. He said it may have been just a difficult ultrasound from how early it was, and I shouldn't be discouraged. It's hard, when every other person in my due date groups who had early ultrasounds saw heartbeats. It's also hard because last time I didn't get a heartbeat early on, I miscarried. 

Please continue to pray over this pregnancy. I so need a good outcome! I go back in two weeks, on May 6th, to see if the baby progressed and has a heartbeat or not. It's going to be a very difficult two weeks!

 My first pregnancy i was able to see and hear the heartbeat at 6 weeks. However, I haven't been able to so since then. I've seen the heartbeat at 7 weeks, but other than that first pregnancy I haven't heard or seen the heartbeat at 6 weeks. I'll keep you in my prayers, but don't let this discourage you. Whenever two people agree, God is let's be postive and declare in Gods name that YOU WILL KEEP THIS BABY! This baby will be healthy and be your rainbow!

Pray & try to keep calm! :) 

Those first ultrasounds are tricky....I think I've always been a week off on each of my ultrasounds.... And than as the baby grows---your due date can change again! 

*fingers crossed*

Praying Hun!

I went in with my third pregnancy ( I lost my second) thinking I was about 6-7 weeks along. I did get my blood drawn first and my levels were low. So of course there was that risk of losing the baby again. I went back for the results and he wanted to check via ultrasound to see if we could see anything.

We found a yolk sac and no heartbeat yet. I went back two weeks later and there was baby. Flickering away and moving. I couldn't believe what two weeks did.

Hun it's very possible that you are just early and when u go back baby will have a heart beat :) try and stay positive. Hugs!

(((hugs))) This pregnancy had me freaked at first. I went to be seen the morning after having a pretty big gush of blood (then it "stopped") and they saw a sac that measured days behind (5.6 instead of 6.4) but no HB, no baby.  I went back the following Tue and they found baby AND HB and baby was measuring 7.4 instead of 7.2!  Sometimes all you need is time. LOTS of good thoughts hun!
