I had an ultra sound for my first pregnancy – no heartbeat. Is it ok to do natural miscarriage?
Hi. Im (…)r and im 31 years old. I had an ultra sound for my first pregnancy test few weeks ago but was told there is no heartbeat. At that time i was about 11 weeks but the radiologist said it was much smaller than what it should be. After hearing that i was very sad. I havent seen a doctor yet and waiting for natural miscarriage. I had no bleeding so far, just mild cramp as if im getting my period and no pregnancy symptoms anymore. Please tell me what should i do? Is it ok to do natural miscarriage? How long does it take for dead fetus to come out? This is my first pregnancy so i need help.
Let me know soon
Hi and welcome to question doctors.com
Normally fetal heart beat can be heard by 10th week…so it is abnormal..also if your doctor said it is smaller then I recommend doing another US to make sure nothing has changed…and then you can do the miscarriage but under your doctor’s supervision…
