They have a heat beat 25 days after conception before you even miss you period. But ultrasound machines and doctors make mistakes I would really get an other opinion good luck keep us posted

I had the samething happen to me. It is called a missed misscarrige( what i had) i was almost 12 weeks the baby only measured 8w 2days. They told me there was no heart beat i did not want to believe it for a second it was heart breaking beyond belief. I made then do another U/S and again no heart beat so i had to get a D&C (surgery) to get the baby out. My body was not recognizing that the baby was dead. 

I would make them give you another U/S just to make sure,If it means anything at all i know what it feels like and your not alone!

HOpe the best for you!

Don't give up I wouldn't I would get at least 2 more ultrasound and blood work done because if you are misscarrying you hormone levels will drop so call and ask to have that done tomorrow and then get your levels checked again in 3 days if they go up then there is still a baby if it goes down then you are misscarrying.

IMO There is always a chance. Due dates can be wrong and it never hurts to wait a week or two to get a second opinion.
