this query is regarding my co-sister.she is 8 weeks pregnant today n went for scanning but the doctor can't see n hear baby's said to wait till 1 more week n if then also they cant see n hear heartbeat she have to abort the baby. pls help I m really very tensed .

Dr. Payal M

yes, wait for a week to rescan and see. a lot of times the conception is late or periods have been irregular etc, so the fetal age on sonography is plus or minus.
don't worry hopefully things will be ok.

thanks payal


As advised by Babychakra expert Dr Nikhil Datar(Gynecologist) -
Usually by 8 weeks heart beat must be seen on sonography. May be ahe should do one more sonography and reconfirm the facts. If heartbeats have not developed by 8 weeks of pregnancy, it will be termed as failed pregnancy and needs appropriate management
