My cousin is pregnant and due in february she should be16 weeks. she went to the er due to bleeding. and i need some help understanding this. first she said that she was going to the er because she was bleeding. 4 minutes later (literally) she said the drs said she didnt miscarry but they still needed to do an ultrasound but she would need bed rest. i asked how they knew she didnt miscarry without the ultrasound and she replied "they spreded me open and the dr looked inside and he could see the moving sac and they used a heart beat moniter." ok... then she had to do see what blood type she was for her bloodwork or whatever. a while after she said that there was no heart beat found and the baby was only measuring 11 weeks when she should be measuring 16 weeks. but there is a chance the baby can get a heartbeat but untill further notice she needs bed rest. ..............my question is how can the baby just out of nowhere get a heartbeat if 1)there is none right now and 2) the baby already stopped developing so isnt that a miscarriage? SOMEONE PLEASE CLARIFY THIS FOR ME IM SO CONFUFSED! *******edit sorry i forgot to say they did the ultrasound after she got that bloodwork and thats when she said there was no heartbeat.
