So far I've had two dating scans. The first, I thought I was 8 weeks along, turns out I had my dates wrong, and I was in fact 6 weeks along. The bub was all crampt up in a corner and the measurements were hard to take. The Sonographer said to come back in a couple of weeks. Both scans could detect a heart beat, and with the second scan we could all see our baby moving about!
6 weeks 2 days - 124 beats per min (Due 15 August 2013 approximately)
9 weeks 3 days - 167 beats per min (Due 10 August 2013)
It was around 9 weeks where our baby passed away last time 2 years ago, so I feel a little better we are now past that point. I can feel my lower abdominal pushing out a little and feeling hard. I just keep thinking of our baby moving about in there... I have a strong sense he's going to be a boy too.
But what I wanted to get peoples opinions on is, are these heart rates looking OK? What is the likelihood of me having another missed/miscarriage?
Is it normal to have the dates switch up a bit to what you thought? I went off the pill and got pregnant straight away, so had no chance to know what my usual period was expected.
Background: I had a missed miscarriage 2 years ago. There was a heart beat at 6 weeks, then went in for the 12 week scan and found the baby had passed away at around 9 weeks. I still had all the pregnancy symptoms, no cramps and no bleeding, so I thought everything was ok.... then my body wouldn't abort the baby naturally, so I had to go into hospital for a D&C. They then analyzed our baby after the D&C. She was fine. It turns out the egg didn't bury deep enough into my womb to latch on. So as she grew, she detached. Very sad when you know she was going to be a girl and nothing was wrong with her.
