this is my mom's question, any answers are appreciated
I am 9 Weeks 5days pregnant. For five days now I have had light spotting on and off which was pinkish and kind of mucousy. I called the doctor when it started five days ago and they said of I didn't have pain or cramps or really heavy bleeding then It was more than likely normal. So fast forward to today I go for my regular checkup and tell the doctor I am still spotting but without pain. He ordered an ultrasound in which the technician said the baby stopped growing at 7Weeks. There is an embryo/fetus (don't know what it's called at this stage) and a sac, but it is measuring 7 Weeks and could not detect a heartbeat. Doctor said I could do a d&c or wait a dew days for another ultrasound. I have not had any cramping at all and I am still gaining weight and feel pregnant. I saw the embryo on the screen too. Is it possible they are mistaken. Also, it was am abdominal ultrasound not transvaginal and I only had an hour to drink three cups of water.
