Dating ultrasound at 8 weeks
I trust my doctor who I'm seeing on Monday but just don't know what to think or feel. Yes, it could work out fine, and yes, it could be a miscarriage coming. If you are very sure of your dates, you really would have expected to have seen a heartbeat by now.
If you are less certain, there could still be a possibility of a happy outcome.
I was meant to be 10 weeks pregnant when I had a bit of bleeding.
I hadn't had any of my pregnancy symptoms for a few weeks and was concerned so went to the GP who referred me for an ultra sound which showed that the baby had stopped growing at 6 to 7 weeks. I would wait another week and have another scan to be sure.
Give it time until your doctor is 100% sure then decide if you want a curette or not. You can be ok with the knowledge that you CAN get pregnant. Re the D&C vs natural - hard decision and the best choice will be different for each woman one act circumstance.
Some people find miscarrying to be relatively painless and quick, others find it very painful.
It can also be very hard to see all the tissue coming out - but some ladies find that it helps to see it go.
