Feeling so defeated

I did IUI and conceived on my first try. So there is no way my dates are off. Had my first scan at 6 weeks and could only see the yolk sac. Went back yesterday for another scan at 8 weeks, there is a fetal pole but it is measuring at only 6 weeks but no heartbeat. Dr only mention it’s a slow growth and there’s progress from the first scan but other than that didn’t seem too concern and scheduled for another ultrasound in 2 weeks. Give it to me ladies, any advice or experience?

It's normal.... Everything will be alright.. Even my neighbour had such issues but later everything was in track... Not all pregnancies are same.. Don't compare yourself with others... Be positive so that your body supports you... Let me know your recent update.. God bless you

Perhaps it’s still too early. Hoping that on your next appointment, you will be able to “see” your baby’s heartbeat. Meanwhile, please do not stress and continue to take care of yourself.

Thank you for the encouragement. Happy new year to you too :)

Eat 400-800mcg folic acid daily, watch your diet. Strictly follow pregnancy diet and avoid cat litter to prevent toxoplasmosis etc.1

For me I'm 9 weeks pregnant but the Dr said no heartbeat 😥😥😥
