Hi Everyone,

I would need your advice on this condition and advice by the doc.

Condition:
Gestation period: 8w 5 d
Baby measured: 13 mm
Fetal pole detected
No Heart beat (Internal and external scan done)

Advice by doc:
Wait for one more week and have a new scan
If no heart beat found , then get the baby removed.

Should i go for an another suggestion or wait for some more time ?

Please advice
