Dear friends, I hope I can find some solution here. My wife is pregnant and this is her 9th week. She took up the first scan couple of weeks back and the baby's "yolksac" was confirmed and the growth was 15.9mm. For the past 3 days she was getting spotting (brown & red not clear). So I was afraid and took her to a doc. The doc said that she can say anything only by viewing a scan. Today the doc did a scan (not inter vaginal) but a scan from abdomen and said that the baby's heart beat is not heard so we need to abort. But my wife did not believe the doc and had requested the doc to wait for 2 weeks and then we can pursue the aborting process. Is this really a miscarriage? This is our first baby, am 30 yr old and my wife is 26 after 10 months of marriage she got pregnant.
I would appreciate your prayers and solutions.. View Thread
Dear Sarah, my wife is pregnant and she is on her 9th week. We had taken the first scan (inter vaginal) and got the results as "Yoke sac created", "Fetal pole made out" growth is 15.9mm. For the past 3 days she has been getting vaginal discharge which is brownish in color and thick of form. I was afraid so I took her to a nearest gynecologist. The doc said that we need to take a scan and we took a scan today (which was not intervaginal, but just over the abdomen). Now, the doc says the baby's heartbeat is not heard so we need to abort since it is 9th week. But my wife had requested her for 2 more weeks for one more scan to confirm. Can you please help here?
PS: This is our first child, we got married last year july2nd. My age is 30 and my wife's 26. She doesn't have any irregular menstrual issues.
Is the doctor who counseled my wife today is right?
