No heartbeat at dating scan
In a normal pregnancy, the ultrasound results can provide an estimate of the gestational age to within five to seven days of accuracy.
When a woman is having miscarriage symptoms, a doctor may order one or more ultrasounds to determine the viability of the pregnancy.
It will be what it is meant to be, I know it's not my fault.
If the same problem presist, demand a doctor to do the ultrasound and if it still presist demand answers!!!!:'( Thank you ladies, tomorrow I will demand a second scan - today was my first us at 12,5 weeks, the sonographers said the baby measured 9,5 weeks and there's no heartbeat.Apart from that, it looks like molar pregnancy - I am on emergency list to have a vacuum tomorrow very early morning.The results of an ultrasound are compared to what is expected for the gestational age of a pregnancy.The gestational age is calculated by the number of weeks since the last menstrual period; however, this method generally assumes a 28-day cycle with ovulation occurring on the 14th day.
I am not shocked or devastated - maybe it will come later - I still feel very pregnant, no bleeding, no cramps.
