went to the E.R. today cuz I am 6 1/2 weeks pregnant but had blood when I went to bathroom.... they told me today that my fetal pole is 6 3/7 weeks and my gestational sac is only 5 3/7 weeks.. baby heart rate is only 96 and said it should be above 120... they said one of two things could happen, either im gonna miscarry or chance I could still carry it and have defects.... can anyone please tell me anything good? is this something that may very well change or the sac could grow eventually big enough and heart rate stronger?

Did they calculate your due date by lmp? If so it could be incorrect. I ovulate late and so my due date by lmp and my actual date are almost 2 weeks off. It could be that you are a little less far along than you thought you were (this happens a lot for women because not many people really ovulate on CD14 of their cycle. In fact I never have). And if it was miscalculated since normally you don't have your first appointment for a few weeks, it could be totally normal. If they are seeing a hb with such a little sac that is actually great. It sounds like it just started beating. When there is a hb that makes a difference. I would be more concerned if there was no fetal pole or hb. The heart rate should get stronger and the sac will grow. They may want you to repeat u/s in a week or two to determine viability. I had my very 1st appointment at 6w1d (if they based it on lmp i would have been 8 weeks). And my little one was a little tiny line and the hb was barely visible. So much so they didn't even measure it. I will be 14 weeks tomorrow. Some bleeding can be normal for people. Your in a grey area where it could be either or. I would just make sure to rest as much as possible right now and keep hydrated. And follow up with your OB. Best wishes
