Early scan- no Fetal pole or heartbeat

Feb 14th, 2018, 21:23 PM   #1
 
Hey everyone, just wondering if anyone has any similar experiences. Iíve recently found out weíre pregnant again after two early losses. Iíve had tests and the hospital think I have sticky blood syndrome so Iíve started taking heparin injections. Went for an early scan today, based on my lmp I should be 6+4 but I know I didnít ovulate on day 14 but donít know precisely when i did ovulate but based on cramps and ewcm I think between cd 16-18. Had an andominal us first and then a transvaginal. Saw the pregnancy sack and yolk sac buy couldnít see Fetal pole or heartbeat and midwife kept saying she thinks were only 5+4 and itís too early, but that doesnít work with the dates. Going back for another scan in a week to see if anythingís changes. Midwife was quite positive as sheís convinced weíre not as far along as I think. Struggling not to overthink even though I know I canít change anything. Anyone experienced anything similar? Xxx

Lucy i had an early scan 3 weeks ago thinking i was 6+3 and was fairly sure of dates...the sonographer coukd see yolk.sac but not heartbeat. I went a week later and saw heartbeat and they confirmed dates to be as they thought...not sure how as we only dtd once as i was ill. I think even at 6+4 itsstill consideredwarly and not always possible to see heartbeat....most recommend after 7 weeks...hope it goes ok at next scan.i know how worrying it can be xx

Thanks Melly. That’s reassuring and glad to hear your second scan went well xx

Was feeling more hopeful but I’ve had some light brown tinged cm this afternoon. Only the tiniest amount and it seems to have stopped again now. I thought I saw some yesterday but the smallest amount so I wasn’t certain, mentioned it to the midwife and she said the scan really didn’t look like I was about to miscarry- the sac was the right shape and high up and wasn’t breaking down and didn’t have any bleeding around it, so really not sure why I would be having tinged cm now xx

The scan might have irritated your cervix a bit as it was transvaginal. Melly’s experience is reassuring, hopefully you’ll be the same. Still keeping everything crossed xxx

Agree with Nivetha. I've had a lot of bleeding, even full red bleeding with this pregnancy and baby is 20 weeks along. So bleeding or anything like it doesn't always mean miscarriage.

And its a good sign that the midwife has stated she doesn't think that is the case. It could certainly be an irritated cervix from the internal. All you can do is wait hun, as worrying as it is. Fx for you and good luck for the scan xx

Lucy i was also told sac was good and that it hadnt collapsed which was a good sign. Im still scratching my hesd regarding the dates as convinced i should be around 5 or 6 days further along. Maybe it has taken longer to implant?? The brown cm is normal as could be break through bleeding or just where things are stretching. Like nivetha said the TV scan may hsve irritated your cervix! Its good you are not bleeding or hsving strong cramps.....when do you go back for your next scan? Xx

I don't have any experience myself but just wanted to wish you luck with your second scan. You can never be 100% sure on your dates, I think it can be down to when you implant as well as ovulate. *fingers crossed* the nurse was right.

Thanks ladies for all of your replies and support. You’re right I just need to see what they say at the scan. Now to find something to keep me busy for the next few days! Xx

Hey ladies, unfortunately not good news for me, had the second scan today and whilst the pregnancy sac has grown as much as it should have in a week, the yolk sac has disappeared so it’s not a viable pregnancy and just waiting it out now.

I’m so very sorry Lucy, I really hoped this wasn’t the case and this was going to be your rainbow baby. It is so unfair. I hope you get the answers you need from all your tests. Be kind to yourself, big hugs xxx
