I was once very much a part of this board more than 5 years ago and again about 2 years ago.
I know everything there is to know about what is going on here, but I just wanted a recent and updated opinion on this.
A friend who got pg first try with healthy baby first time, now struggled (I say that with a smile) for 6 mos before getting pg this time. Now, at her first check up, at 7.5-8 weeks the baby measured 5.5-6 weeks and had a h/b of 100 bpm.
Now, I know about late implatation etc... but I wonder what the bounce back rate for her could be? She did an HCG after finding this out and it was 27K first day and then 29K two days later only rising 2K, prog. went up from 24 to 29. She has had one large back cramp but all seems well. She is already puffy, she is very exhausted, etc...
I see it as a plus and minus: good: Has a Heartbeat: Bad: Beta Numbers
Any of your recent imput on this would be helpful.
Thanks you can email or post firstname.lastname@example.org

If you want me to be completely honest...it doesn't sound good. Unless they totally screwed up how far along she is...the measurements sound pretty off. The same thing happened to me with both m/c, the size was too small and the h/b was only around 100 when it should have been at least 120 (preferable higher). I really hope that I am wrong!! Good luck to your friend.

I agree with Jenny....
If those measurements are right, it seems like a big difference so early on. A heartbeat is always a good sign, but it does not mean a successful preg. I too hope they were wrong.
