3rd u/s: 8w0d

Back to the RE for another ultrasound. A different doc measured me today. And as of last week there has been a lot of change - if indeed their measurements are correct to begin with!

Today I am measuring precisely at 8w0d. (So the fetus grew 2 weeks in 6 days?)
The heartbeat was measured at 83!!!! (That's down from 106bpm at 6w4d)

Once again I was told to expect for the worst.

I feel there is too much information and medical intervention at this point. But I'm so far in this, I am not about to quit going to these u/s. He "needs" me back next week.

What a roller coaster. Try to hang in as much as you can. Hope you're able to get a more definitive answer soon. You are in my thoughts.

One thing I have learned for this is that every person is different. Hope for the best and take each day as it comes. Hang in there!

Well, I'm glad to hear he's measuring "better". The heartbeat sounds off, though.

What day next week for the next u/s... I'll be praying more for you. I sure hope this little guy is hanging out & being strong.
