Fetal Development

If your ultrasound measured 6 weeks 4 days but no fetal pole was seen what are your chances of a miscarriage?

From what I understand, you should see a fetal pole by that time. However, I would go back for another u/s in about a week to see if things have changed or not.

i had an ultrasound when i was 6 weeks pregnant, but by ultrasound, the pregnancy measured to be 5 weeks, so no fetal pole was seen yet. i think the earliest fetal poles can be seen is about 6 1/2 - 7 weeks. hope this helps :)

An ultrasound at 6 weeks should show a fetal heartbeat, if there was a fetal heartbeat you're not miscarrying.. It's probable you estimated your due date wrong.

Not miscarriage, more likely brain damage. It's called Fetal Alcohol Syndrome

bleeding, sometimes pain and cramping. All bleeding cannot be considered an immediate miscarriage. An ultrasound and fetal hearttones need to confirm.

If it is a genuine miscarriage you will see fetal material on the ground along with some bloody mucous. But many times there will not be an actual miscarriage, but what is call an absorbsion. Early in pregnancy, mares will absorb the fetus. There will be no sign and you may not know unless you get an ultrasound from your vet.
