Re: Heartbeat on Doppler but not Ultrasound
I don't think I ever heard of such a thing. I heard of heartbeat MOVEMENT on a sonogram but no heart BEATING on a doppler if it's before 14 weeks gestation. I would get a second opinion. Go to a different office or even to the ER just to be sure. With my last pregnancy, I was told they couldn't see any heartbeat movement on the sonogram and I was 7 weeks so I knew you would be able to. I went to another hospital and they told me the baby's heart was beating just fine AND I got to hear it. So it could be the machine they were using but definitely get a second opinion. When they said they will prepare you for a miscarriage, how exactly are they doing that? They didn't give you any pills did they? If they try to just decline and tell them you'll wait it out at home. I don't believe you're having a miscarriage though.
