Hi
Anybody had at 7 weeks slow heart rate at about 81bpm which shud have been 120bpm at this gestation week. The doc asked me to come in a weeks time on 11jan. though he says he is not terribly optimistic about this pregnancy outcome. :'(
Does anyone have a different positive experience to the one the doc is telling me i will have?

Just spoke to my doc here who is also an obstetrician and he agrees that the heartrate is too slow but he would also want to repeat in 1 week as it can be easy to mistake baby heart rate with the mother´s. Good luck for next week.

Hi Irmina

I am in the same boat as you. After not seeing a fetal pole or a HB for the last few scans we eventually got to see a HB today 6w6d but it was slow. The nurse was concerned but she said come back next week on Tuesday. I had my hCG levels doen again but goodness knows what is in store for us!

The baby measured 4.4mm which is less than 6wks. It's all very worrying and I am beside myself.

Lets hope and pray that we beat the odds and go on to have our babies safely.

No one seems to have had anything similar to our situation. I have trawled every page on 'ask a nurse' but nothing has come up.

Love DAB xkx

Irmina-Sorry to hear your having such a difficult time. The waiting is agony. Although I haven't had the same experience as you, at about 7wks I had slow rising HCG levels which they said meant my pregnancy would fail  meaning miscarriage number three-I'm now 13 wks and all recent scans and bloods are looking fine.
There are many, many pregnancies that are never looked at such an early stage so I guess they don't really know whats 'normal'. I do hope that you prove the science wrong. Will be thinking of you.
