Suggest treatment for low heart rate of fetus

I am 6wks pregnant. The day before yesterday (5.21.14) I had some severe mid-back cramps and slept them off. They lasted for about 5 hours before easing up around 6 pm. Haven t had any bad cramps since. Yesterday (5.22.14) i started spotting (very light) and went to the ER just to make sure nothing was wrong since some women naturally spot and others it can be a bad sign. any sign of blood stopped yesterday evening and I haven t had any return since. During my ER visit, the doctor told me that the baby s heart rate was really low (92) and that the gestational sac was abnormally shaped. My cervix is closed and harmone levels are fine. What are the chances that this baby will grow to term?

Hello. Abnormal shape gestational shape and lower line heart beat more towards negative side. However a scan after a week - 10 days. If the things get better then chances to term are there. I suggest in your case a followup scan after 1week time. Hope it help. Thank you.
