Fetal Heart Rate Has Not Been Seen At 7 Weeks Of Pregnancy,?
Afternoon, I want to ask about my pregnancy which has been stepped on 7 weeks. My obstetrician said, at the time of transvaginal ultrasound, the fetal sac had blown up to 2.24 cm, but the heart rate had not yet appeared. Only seen prospective ari ari. Is this condition normal? Explanation please. And is there any special treatment to keep the pulse visible?
Hello Hana, thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com.
At the age of a month or 4 weeks after conception, the general heartbeat can not be heard even though the heart has begun to develop. This is due to the embryo of the fetal heart that is still in the process of forming the heart perfectly. And usually the sound of a new fetal heartbeat can be heard at the age of the 5th week. But if at that age the heart rate can't be heard then you don't need to worry. Because many in some cases the baby's heartbeat can only be heard at 12 weeks gestational age.
If your current pregnancy is 7 weeks then you do not need to worry because you can still wait until your fetus is a maximum of 12 weeks. All you need to need now is to be patient and take care of your pregnancy properly, and avoid heavy emotional stress. Until now there has not yet been found a clinical treatment that functions to bring up the fetal heart rate. So you do not need to take certain medications that work to cause heart rate, besides you are taking supplements for your first trimester of pregnancy.
Henceforth you should control again to your obstetrician at least 1 week ahead. It aims to determine the development of your future fetus. Or you can consult another doctor to find a second opinion whether the results are the same as your previous doctor.
Thus we can convey, hopefully this information is useful for you.
