No heartbeat.. ETA.. UPDATE 2 - Ultrasound

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
I don't know what to think.. Went in for my first OBGYN appointment yesterday and there's no heartbeat.. I'm supposed to be 13 weeks.. Does anyone know what this means? I don't want to think miscarriage. I have a ultrasound on Monday morning.. I haven't bled, I've only had slight cramping.. ETA: Thank you ladies for your responses. I'd like to just say, some of them have scared me shitless.. I am now having mild cramps in my pelvic area.. I'm trying to stay positive until Monday.. If I keep cramping I am going to the hospital.. Will update if I go. If not, I'll update on Monday after my ultrasound. Thank you. ETA2**** I had my ultrasound this morning. Baby is alive and well. I was off on my due date. I am 9 weeks tomorrow. Thank you ladies for the well wishes!!!!!!

Did they use just a doppler? Or confirm no heartbeat with an ultrasound?

The nurse checked first, then my OBGYN, then another OBGYN.. They didn't say anything.. I didn't know what to ask, I was in shock, really.


Quoting Nicoleb9:

Maybe they just couldn't find it yet. What did the doctor say?

Don't panic! I went in at 14 weeks and they couldn't find the heart-beat in the office. They sent me for an ultrasound (because I was high risk), and his little heart was beating strong.

13 weeks is still pretty early. Are you going for an ultrasound?

This happened to me. The outcome was not a good one. I'm sorry, chica. I hope it goes well Monday. I know it's easier said than done but try not to stress over it.

It took several tries to find mine at 12 weeks. I know it's hard not to worry. Hang in there and hope for the best!
