The first time you are aware that anything is wrong may be when you have your first ultrasound scan.Hi all, I have never posted on a forum before and I am not sure what I'm looking for on here, perhaps comfort with confirmation that others believe my decisions are being guided by good advice.
I have a D&C scheduled for this Thursday 6 July 2017. Does no heartbeat at 8 weeks when the sac diameter is measuring 6 weeks and there is low HCG mean that no heartbeat will ever appear and I have definitely had a missed miscarriage?
Often times, the mother may continue to have pregnancy-like symptoms and have experienced no bleeding, cramping, or other signs of concern.
The devastating news of ‘miscarriage’ comes as quite a shock.
In a situation of missed miscarriage, it would be quite common for the woman to attend a normal prenatal checkup thinking everything is just fine, only to find out that her baby is gone, and may have been gone for some time.
Your body may still be giving you signals that you are pregnant, though if your hormone levels are falling, those signs may lessen slightly.
Your breasts may feel less tender, or you may find your pregnancy sickness has stopped sooner than expected.
That sounds clinical, but I assure you he was very sensitive about these matters.
He didn't appear to have any doubt that that was what was required and he did look at the ultrasound results.
You may not have had any of the usual signs of miscarriage, such as pain or bleeding.
