Wondering if any ladies on here can give me any words of reassurance or something to give me some hope, as OH and I are currently feeling so low. We had a scan at 5 weeks at the epu as I was suffering with backache and they said everything looked fine, booked us in for a 7 week scan to see the heartbeat. Sadly, we went for our 7 week scan on Thursday and it wasn't as we were expecting. The sonographer said that we were measuring perfectly, everything had grown to 7 weeks and looked great, however the heartbeat was visible, but slow. She said it was a 'concern' and although we may come back next week to see everything is fine, we should also prepare ourselves for bad news. She didn't tell us the speed of the heart just said it was slow. We're pretty much convinced were going to have a miscarriage now and feel like our dreams of having a baby have been totally crushed. The only positive thing that's keeping me going is that over the last few days I seem to have developed some promising symptoms, a lot of nausea and feeling generally rotten, headachy, sort of like I'm hungover, but I've started getting brown discharge last night, only light but it's making me worry It's the start of miscarriage. Wondering if any ladies have had a similar experience with the heart rate and have any success stories they could share with me, as I'm totally and utterly preparing myself for the worst :( thank you xxx
