Hi.. Usually fetal heart develops within 3 to 4 weeks of pregnancy and must be seen in an ultrasound examination.. So I am sorry to mention that there are possibilities that your pregnancy may have been terminated.. A condition known as missed abortion.. This is the possible explanation for the delay in the growth and the indication for D&C.. Hope this is an isolated event and does not occur again..
