    1st pregnancy, 8+2 weeks, advised there is a sac and fetal pole but no heart beat.

    My last cycle began March 20th, I should be 8 weeks 2 days. I started spotting on Friday, was told it was common, it got progressively worse but never very heavy, no cramps. Went to EPU and had a trans vaginal scan I'm was told there was a sac and fetal pole but no heartbeat. I've been sent home for 'nature to take over' still just light ish brownish bleeding. I have to go back in 2 weeks to have a D&C if it hasn't come away naturally. I'm so sad and dont want to cling onto false hope but Ive read stories on here and am wondering if there could be another reason the baby hasn't developed yet?

    I'd say double check before they proceed to do any invasive procedure.

    Sometimes those scans don't catch a heartbeat. Get a second opinion.

      Thank you for your response. I feel so upset today, part of me feels like I'm being disillusioned and clutching at straws and the other part wants someone to be 100%.
      I think I'm going to contact the GP and request my bloods are taken for hCG levels

      That would be best, for your own pace of mind. Having to just wait and wonder is torturous. I'm sorry you are suffering through this, and keep us updated.

    I agree. For your own peace of mind, get a second opinion and don't let anyone talk you out of it.

    You certainly have a right to a 2nd opinion about something so vitally important. Normally at 8-9 weeks, the heartbeat is easy to see by ultrasound....but they have made mistakes.

    Wishing you peace in this sad and troubling time.
