Patient :Can moderate to severe cramping during transvaginal ultrasound effect the results ? I am currently 7.3 weeks pregnant and have a subchorionic hemorrhage. I had an ultrasound done at 7.1 weeks to check viability and during procedure I was experiencing moderate to severe cramping from the subchorionic. Dr was concerned that baby was only measuring 6.6 weeks and heartrate was slow at 100 bpm. Along with subchorionic, Dr believes miscarriage is highly likely. I am sure of my conception dates because this pregnancy is a result of IVF. I have had my uterine lining measured many times and have been told that my measurements during a uterine contraction were smaller than when uterus wasn't contracting moments later. Does this rule apply to measurements of gestational sacs/crl/etc? Could constant contractions effect a heart rate this early on?
Symptoms: Subchorionic hemorrhage, early pregnancy
