    fetus measures good but no heartbeat

    I had an u/sound today, and am at exactly 9w1d today, when they did the transvaginal u/s, the baby measured exactly at 9w1d, but no heartbeat was there, when I had ultrasound at 6w3d then we clearly saw the heartbeat.

    Dr was perplexed that fetus is measuring exactly what it should, so he called in another Dr who verified no heartbeat, I do in again on Thurdsday to verify this so we can take the next step.

    I am devestated of course, but is there any possibility that somehow the heartbeat was missed and just didnt show up on monitor? I might be grasping at straws, but I am confused.

    I finally was pregnant after 13 years of marriage and 7 years of infertility treatments, I finally was pg with IVF. I am just so upset!

    I'm sorry to hear your story! Hopefully everything is ok & the doctors missed your baby's heartbeat like you said. I know it's easier said than done, but try not to stress too much & try to stay positive okay.

    My thoughts are with you, Crystal

    I know what you are going through is so terribly heart wrenching.
    My thoughts will be with you on Thursday. Hugs ~ Tyff
