Sorry for late update ladies. I fell asleep at 6:00 pm tonight And I will be headed back to bed shortly, its 11:00 pm here now.

Anywho - Had my dating ultrasound today. I am measuring 6w3d. Saw baby, as I posted in the gallery. I have to go back next Friday for a viability re-check. The HB was only 61 bpm. my OB said that everything could end up being just fine, but I am still nervous. This is what happened when I had my miscarriage in September. However, last time, the faint HB wasn't even measurable. This time it was. I actually SAW the beat movement on the ultrasound screen… That was amazing. I had not seen that before!

So, I have to go back next friday, november 15. Dr said the best outcome will be baby is growing and there will be a normal strong HB. However, it is possible baby will continue to grow and still have a "slow" HB. If that is the case then my OB will have to run tests on me to see if there is something in my blood/body that is causing a low HB rate. Worst case, the heart will stop beating between now and then…causing another miscarriage and D&C….

Obviously, I am hoping for the best. Thanks for listening to my tired ranting…I'm going back to bed now!

Oh, how hard! I am sorry things didn't go better and you have to wait to find out if all is well. I will be sending good thoughts your way and anxiously awaiting an update.

I hate that you are in limbo and waiting to know more. *hugs* That is the worst!!!! Just to encourage you, with DS2 I had some spotting and they brought me in a little over 5wks. Fetal pole, no HB seen yet. A week later (a little over 6wks), the HB was about 80bpm. They told me this was slow, but not uncommon for a heart that just began beating. There was some concern about it being slow, but my MW stressed to me to not get upset that this happens a lot. A week more, 7wks, he had a nice strong normal HB and he's a healthy 5yr old today to prove it! I know it's going to be a long week for you. Praying right now!!!!

I can only imagine the stress you must be feeling right now.

Try to stay positive, you saw a hb - so that's a good thing! I hope that when you go back next week it's stronger and the baby is bigger; please keep us posted.

My thoughts are with you right now!! 6w3d is still pretty early for a heartbeat, and I thought they all started out slow and got faster over the following week? Hoping you get some reassurance and everything turns out perfect soon!!!

Thanks ladies I appreciate all of the kind words and crossed appendages! I am going to do my very best to stay as positive as possible... It's all I can do, right! Here's to waiting another 8 days to see if it's still a viable pregnancy

Oh no, Jackie! I'm so sorry that you are stuck in limbo! Praying that baby grows and thrives and has a strong, strong heartbeat next apt. I've heard stories of women going in early in the 6th week and not seeing a heart beat at all and going in again a week or two later to see a perfectly healthy, growing baby with a strong heartbeat. I truly hope that is the case for you, that it's just early and that baby grows and develops and looks perfect when you go back!
