Low Fetal Heart rate

Postby tryn4#2 » Tue Sep 22, 2009 11:42 pm

I had an ultrasound today (7 wks 1 day). The fetal heart rate was only 76 and the baby is measuring only 6 wks. My doctor is "concerned" and I am scheduled to have another ultrasound next Tuesday.

What are the chances that everything will be okay?

I am so sorry to hear this, I will be honest i was in this exact position in May of this yr, baby was measuring 6 wks instead of 7w3d and slow heart rate we were told to wait for 1 wk and see, we were told that u/s can be out by a few days and that it may also have implanted late, I did a lot of research on this and the chances were stacked against us but did read of some hopeful cases. Unfortunately we were not one of the lucky ones but There Is some chance that your baby will make it, at this moment unfortunately its a waiting game (prob the hardest thing you can do). Say a Prayer to St. Rita and St Jude to help your little baby catch up. I will light a candle for you later xxxxx
