The Fetus Is Not Visible And There Is No Heartbeat?
I have already asked about my pregnancy, whose fetus was small when checked on ultrasound at 6w, several weeks after I tried to check again with a different midwife without telling me that I had been to a different midwife beforehand. Now, in the current midwife, my pregnancy age according to HPHT is 9w, but the fetus doesn’t look at all. The midwife said the pregnancy bag was there but the fetus had not yet been seen. And still natural because HP people like to be wrong or forget. I am very sure if my cellphone is July 25 because my menstruation is always regular, and indeed I always record when I have the month on the calendar. In my first midwife’s statement, my heart rate was read. But because the second one hasn’t been seen, the fetus hasn’t read the heartbeat. According to the first midwife, my uterus is already in a good position. Is it possible for me to BO? I am very stressed
Hello Mrs. Nadya! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
I have read Mother's question before. It seems that you have had an ultrasound examined by a doctor and it has been confirmed that you are pregnant with a gestational sac. You need to know that ultrasound examination of pregnant women must be done by a doctor, especially a gynecologist or general practitioner who has undergone training. Midwives should not do ultrasound examinations on pregnant women because midwives do not have the competence in this matter. Ultrasound examination in the first trimester is quite difficult to do, but the results can be very accurate. I am quite confused, whether the ultrasound at 6 weeks of gestation was done by an obstetrician or by a midwife? If you have never been examined by a gynecologist, you should see a gynecologist. The examination may also make you calmer by clearly knowing the condition of your pregnancy.
Blighted ovum (BO) is a condition in which the fetus does not form when the egg attaches itself to the uterus. In BO, there is no fetus in the gestational sac. In your case, it seems that you don't have BO because your fetus has been seen and even measured its length on the previous ultrasound examination. If a miscarriage occurs and the pregnancy sac leaves the uterus, usually bleeding from the birth canal will occur. If you don't experience this, chances are that your pregnancy is fine. The midwife who examines the mother may not see the pregnancy sac because it is difficult to see the pregnancy sac, especially if an ultrasound is not done by an obstetrician. You should reduce the worry and stress you feel because it can affect your pregnancy. If you are really worried, you should check with your obstetrician. Keep eating a healthy and balanced diet. Avoid overeating. Also avoid cigarettes, alcohol and caffeine (coffee, tea, chocolate, and soft drinks). If not, start taking special supplements for pregnant women, especially iron and folic acid, which are important for fetal development. Don't eat raw or undercooked foods, such as fresh vegetables and satay.
So much information from me. I hope this helps.
