HELLO TEHRE.

CONSIDERING YOUR GESTATIONAL AGE OF 8 WEEKS, THE ULTRASOUND FINDINGS ARE NOT GOOD.

THIS IS BECAUSE FEATURES LIKE CRUMPLED FETAL POLE, ABSENT HEART BEAT (CARDIAC ACTIVITY) ANS GESTATIONAL SAC SMALLER THAN PERIOD OF PREGNANCY (6WEEKS) SUGGESTS THAT YOU MIGHT HAVE A RISK OF MISCARRIAGE.

MOSTLY WORKING HEART IS SEEN BY 8 WEEKS PROVIDED YOUR WIFE CORRECTLY REMEMBERS HER LAST MENSES DATE.

BUT STILL YOU CAN WAIT FOR A WEEK OR TWO AND GET A REPEAT ULTRASOUND.
IN THE MEAN TIME EITHER A POSITIVE SIGN CAN BE SEEN IN YOUR NEXT ULTRASOUND OR YOU MAY ABORT WITH BLEEDING AND PAIN.

YOU CAN STILL WAIT FOR THE EXPECTED CHANGES.

TAKE CARE.
