I have recently had my dating scan and the lady measuring said I was only measuring at 5.5 weeks – I had previously measured at this 1 and a half weeks ago. My hcg levels are still really high, got them back today. Doctor thinks could be quality of the sonographer and told me not to worry. They’ll repeat bloods in two days and a follow up scan in a week or so. I’m worried it is a missed miscarriage. Other than minimal brown discharge on and off over last few days, I haven’t had bleeding and have only had minor cramps which have been happening since finding out.

  • Unfortunately the same happened to me in 2019 and it was a missed miscarriage. I measured 7w1d, then 5 days later still measuring 7w1d… they weren’t concerned as Bub had good heartbeat, but ultrasound at 10w showed no hb anymore
    Really hope for a better outcome for you, I remember how awfully stressful the waiting was
