Hello.
Thanks for writing to us.
Since your wife is more than two months pregnant, there should have been a growing fetus with a heart beat and a well defined yolk sac visible in the ultrasound scan. Since there is no heart beat detected, a missed abortion is likely.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. You can consult me again directly through my profile URL http://bit.ly/Dr-Rakhi-Tayal

Hi, Now am at 12th week of my pregnency, and it found that NT is 2.57 which is not normal and there is high risk.So doctor suggested me to hav CVS by which chromosomal abnormalities can be found.After this test though if it is negative after 20th week baby s heart will be seen to test whether any heart diseases are there.Butmy concern is after these 2 tests also baby may born with genetic defect as NT is more .So can you please suggest me in this regard.Is to good to continue the pregnency now or better to terminate as doctors suggesting after all the tests also we may not be sure that baby will not have genetic defects. Thanks in advance

went to the E.R. today cuz I am 6 1/2 weeks pregnant but had blood when I went to bathroom.... they told me today that my fetal pole is 6 3/7 weeks and my gestational sac is only 5 3/7 weeks.. baby heart rate is only 96 and said it should be above 120... they said one of two things could happen, either im gonna miscarry or chance I could still carry it and have defects.... can anyone please tell me anything good? is this something that may very well change or the sac could grow eventually big enough and heart rate stronger?
