Cause for elevated FETAL HEARTBEAT without bleeding, cramping.

Resolved Question:

What are the chances of a fetal heartbeat to elevate from 80 bpm on week 6.1 of pregnancy? No cramping, no bleeding. I am very healthy & fit (I'm a fitness instructor), all blood work came back great, progesterone came back high but I am 36 years old patientold. Do I have a chance at making it with this pregnancy? I miscarried in Dec '13 at 9 weeks, that was my first pregnancy.

Thank you for your query at DoctorSpring.com
AT 6.1 weeks, a fetal heart rate of 80 BPM has a frankly bad prognosis.
Low fetal heartrate in the early first trimester is a strong indicator of an impending miscarriage.
Were your cycles regular ?
Let me know that so that I can see if you can have some leeway in terms of calculations.
All the best
Please feel free to discuss further,

Patient replied :

Thank you for the honest feedback. Prior to the miscarriage in December, they were 28 day cycles; days/6-7 days long. After the miscarriage, they varied but the last three months before the pregnancy they were back on track to about 28 days: May 14 started, June 10 started, July 10 started. I had taken a home pregnancy test in the late morning of August 1, it came back negative. August 2 at about 6am, it came out positive.

Precisely when was the scan done ?
Is it possible to upload the report ( not the images, but the report ) ?
