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!!!!!!

13 weeks is still early with a doppler. I hate they are making you wait for an ultrasound! At 12 weeks my baby had no heartbeat, confirmed by two ultrasounds & he had passed. I had also started bleeding. Stay positive!! Good luck on Monday.

Slight cramping is normal.  Also to not hear the heart week before 15 weeks is average too.  WIth my third I didn't hear anything until 19 weeks!  Don't get yourself worked up you're probably A-OK!

With one of mine we didnt get a heartbeat with a doppler until 16 weeks. And it was faint then. It always made my heart race :/

This was the first time, yes. They tried 3 different times. I was sick for 12 days straight, couldn't eat, couldn't drink.. It was terrible.. Now I've been throwing up again after 3 weeks of not getting sick.

I'm sorry. :(



I hope everything is ok. Was this the first time they tried to find it?

You are going to worry and want answers right now, for the rest of your life! It's part of being a mom.

I'll pray for you and your little one. I remember how difficult it was. It isn't easy to relax, but it's best for you and your baby.

I'm trying not to worry..it's hard tho, wanting answers and having to wait 4 days to get em.




Quoting AnjalisMommy07:

I go in for a ultrasound Monday morning at 9. I was at the doctor from 2 to 6 yesterday.. Then the ultrasound tech was gone. But what I don't understand is why they didn't send me Labor and Delivery for an ultrasound then and there...


Quoting Anonymous:

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?

I was 149 when I got pregnant, as of yesterday I weigh 137.


Quoting Anonymous:

They are making you wait because they aren't paniking. This isn't a rare occurance for them to not find a heartbeat at 13 weeks using a doppler.



Are you overweight by any chance?



I know it's difficult, but try to stay calm.




Quoting Anonymous:

Just a doppler. Their making me wait til monday for my ultrasound, and I don't understand why..






Quoting Allie_kat1:

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

I was crying and all, and they didn't even offer one.. I have 2 daughters.. I've never had a weird pregnancy. First DD heard her heart beat at 8 weeks, second DD at 10 weeks..


Quoting Allie_kat1:

Doppler isn't very reliable early in pregnancy. It sucks you have to wait for an ultrasound though. When that happened to me (multiple times, i have stubborn babies lol) they always gave me a quick ultrasound before i even left to ease my mind
