I went in for my dating ultrasound on January 2nd, what I thought was my 7 week mark, going off of my LMP of November 14th!

Well two days before my dating ultrasound (December 31) I had just a little bit of blood when I wiped, cramping and low back pain, I immediately freaked out and went in to the ER! There they did an ultrasound and the sadly only saw a sac and a fetal pole, nothing else!

Well back to my dating scan again where I thought I was 7 weeks I measured only 5.5 weeks! And the ultrasound showed a tiny baby, with a little flicker but when she listened to the heartbeat .... it was ONLY 81 bpm!!!

I will go back January 8th for a repeat scan, but in the meantime I am beyond stressed! So stressed I am now extremely depressed and I can’t think straight!!!

Any of you ladies ever experienced this and had a positive outcome?

I am trying so hard to prepare myself for the worse Very Sad

I think its good news. At 5.5 weeks with a heartbeat that's good news they usually cant detect heartbeat till 6 weeks. DD1 had a HB at around 90 or less when I went to my 6 week ultrasound. Just stay positive mama it's good they found a heartbeat.

A heartbeat is good!!!! Please try to remain positive! At around 7 weeks with my last his heartbeat was only in the 90s. I had another ultrasound around 9 weeks and it was 145bpm. Stay positive <3 Sending prayers and good vibes.

Thank you ladies!!! I’m really trying to relax! Doesn’t help that I’m off work for the holidays and have nothing to do other than overthinking this situation!

I am happy they saw a heartbeat but not that it was so low! Tuesday can not come soon enough!
I never thought I’d say this but I wish I had morning sickness to know everything was going ok! Or really any pregnancy symptoms!

i just want this baby to make it Very Sad

I went in for my 6 week dating scan and they said I was only 4-5 weeks. So I’m kind of going through the same thing. There was a yolk sac and tiny blob of a baby but no HB.

I think your dates are just off. At that gestation, it's really hard to pick up a heartbeat, nonetheless an accurate one.
