The further along you are after the 6 week point, the lower the chance of miscarriage misdiagnosis. Vaginal ultrasounds are far more accurate in early pregnancy. This may indicate your due dates are off or you may have a tilted uterus. It appeared to be more common for no fetal pole to be seen and a baby to be found later, than a baby with no heartbeat to later have one.
If a baby is seen measuring 8 weeks or larger with no heartbeat, the chances are quite slim that you had a misdiagnosed miscarriage. In my case, I was wrong.

There are so many things that make HCG levels irrelevant. What you do need to know is that your levels return to zero if you do indeed miscarry, meaning a blood test after your loss, if it happens, is recommended.

In general, the risk of miscarriage is much lower once the pregnancy has reached this point. But what does it mean if you go in for an ultrasound, and there is no fetal heartbeat? You may wonder whether this indicates a miscarriage. Learn what to expect next. Before looking into the possible reasons for the absence of a heartbeat on ultrasound, it is important to look at three factors. It could simply be that it is too early in your pregnancy for a heartbeat to be heard.
When this is the case, and if you have no other symptoms, rechecking an ultrasound in a week is the most common recommendation. Having a follow-up ultrasound after a week and detecting no change still no heartbeat raises the likelihood of miscarriage, but it may still be too early in your pregnancy.
If your periods were irregular, even though it is seven weeks from your last menstrual period you may have been four weeks along in gestational age and still only five weeks along at a second ultrasound. If you are past seven weeks pregnant, seeing no heartbeat may be a sign of miscarriage. But there are many exceptions to the "heartbeat by seven weeks" rule. You've likely heard of people who were certain they had miscarried or were not pregnant, and then went on to have a normal pregnancy.
Since there can be exceptions and the approach you take next is extremely important, medical authorities have developed guidelines as to when you can be fairly certain you have had a miscarriage. Sometimes a lack of a fetal heartbeat does indicate a definite miscarriage.
These situations would include:.
No Heartbeat at 9 Weeks? Is This Normal?
Organizations have adopted different criteria as to when ultrasound findings indicate a miscarriage. The guidelines listed above can be confusing for anyone.

You need to feel at peace with your decision one way or the other, and you do not want to be second-guessing your choices years from now. Most of the time there is no significant risk associated with waiting a few more days as long as there is no indication of problems such as an ectopic pregnancy.No heart beat and the doctor said the fetus is measuring at 6 weeks, I still have all the pregnancy symptoms.
I have been told to wait to see if I miscarry on my own. I am confused and not really getting any answers from my Doctor or her staff. Is it normal to have all the symptoms?

You will still feel pregnant during and after a miscarriage, it's not until the pregnancy hormone has worked its way out of your system that you start feeling normal. You also my need some sort of support group as well because miscarriage can take an astounding emotional toll on some women. Keep in mind that the heartbeat is detectable very early in pregnancy, even at six weeks you can see it during ultrasound.
