7weeks, no heartbeat or sac

Postby ananda » Tue Nov 12, 2013 11:53 am

Hi,

I just went in for my 7w 4d visit yesterday and the doctor indicated there was no yolk sac or heartbeat and that it just "didn't look good for this pregnancy" -- I am going back in again next Monday to re-check, if still nothing (which is what he expects) then we'll discuss "options".
Has anyone taken the medicine they give you to basically induce a miscarriage? I have thought about waiting to miscarry naturally, but I don't know how long that could take - I can't imagine knowing there is nothing growing in me for another several weeks and just waiting to miscarry.
Does anyone know typically how long after there is no "baby growth" do people usually miscarry. I am actually hoping I miscarry before my appt on Monday....

Then we have to wait a full cycle before TTC again... so that puts us at January - which seems like forever away.

I am very sorry for what your going through. I had a smilar issue happen to me. I went in for the first time and they all they saw was the yoke sac, no baby. I was measuring a whole week behind. Then i went in the next week to find a heartbeat. After that I just felt something was wrong. Sure enough my baby had passed three days after my last appointment.

I know my story doesnt help but if you just want to vent I am more than happy to listen. I know when I m/c that I try to act tough then I just drowned in my pain. DH had no idea what to do with me. I was ok one minute then crying uncontrollibly. Everyones experience is different.

I am praying that your baby is just a late bloomer and everything will be ok. Praying for you and the baby!

Hi there, This week has been very hard on me.... I still don't have any cramping or bleeding. How long did it take for you to m/c or did you take medicine or do a D&C? I just wish my body would get it over with.... I saw on the other board too that farmermama ended up getting good news and it was fine - I wish so much that will be my case too - but I think the fact that no HB or Yolk Sac are BOTH not promising signs..... I am hoping I miscarry naturally before Monday...

I see though you were able to get pregnant again pretty quickly after the m/c? That's good to know!!

I wanted to update this in case anyone else sees this or can respond.
Yesterday, I went in for my follow up appt and I was expecting to see nothing again and then move forward with meds to m/c. However, now at 8 weeks the gest sac had grown quite a bit - and then the doctor saw the yolk sac, fetal pole, and a faint heartbeat (all wasn't there last week).... I think he was surprised to see so much growth in a week - I know I was.... The HB he guessed was around 60 - so granted it was very slow, which is not a good sign .... so now I'm stuck having to wait another week to see if the HB goes away and then at this point the doc said a D&C is the best option.... which I was really hoping to avoid.... :( He is still fairly confident that I will miscarry - he said slow growth and slow HB is usually a sign of a chromosomal abnormality.... but I can't help but feel a tiny bit more hopeful than I was last week ???

I am feeling fine - no cramping or bleeding (yet?) .... I go in again on Monday and so I'll know way more then.... I haven't had any major pregnancy symptoms this whole time - so I don't really feel any different... the waiting is just agony until I know what's going on in there!!
