Fearful  
This is my 7th pregnancy. I have one living child. All my other angels were lost between 4w and 11w.

Today we went for our first u/s and there’s a baby. It has a heart beat.

However.

Baby is measuring small. I should be 6w4d by LMP, 6w2d by Ovulation. Baby is measuring 5w6d (+/-2days; 30mm).

Baby’s heartbeat is slow. One measurement was 81, next measurement was 83. Everything I have read states that the heartrate should be much higher -- at least 100.

I want to be excited or happy but all I can see are the flashing signs in front of me. I ran across a medical study that said that there’s a 60% fetal demise rate for heartbeats under 110 at 6 weeks. I hope I’m wrong. Can anyone help me with stories of low initial heartbeats and everything being ok?

Oh, honey! There is a 40% healthy fetal rate! Hold tight to that 40% and PRAY! I know I am! <3<3<3
