My wife is six weeks pregnant and she went for a scan today and the doctor told her that the baby's heart is not beating. Is this something that we should be worried about?

Dear Manelo
It can be a little bit early to see the heart beat - he may have asked her to return if he thought that something is wrong? If it is a "blighted ovum" or unsuccessful pregnancy she will start bleeding like a menstruation.
