Blighted ovum: At 7 weeks an ultrasound should show a fetus. The finding of only a gestational sac and yolk sac is unusual at the least and may suggest a blighted ovum. To be sure, most would recommend a follow up in a few days before discussing terminating the pregnancy. Hope this helps and all goes well.

What are the effects of gestational diabetes on pregnancy?

Dr. Scott Kramer
Gynecology 36 years experience
Baby's Health : This causes high blood sugar which gets across the placenta to the baby. The baby then makes more insulin, which causes them to grow fatter and have metabolic problems during transition after birth. This can me minimized with adhering to a special diet, exercise, and sometimes with medication to lower blood sugar during pregnancy.

Discuss your options: If the baby is breech at an early ultrasound, this has no significance. If it is in the last 3-4 weeks, then you have some choices to make. The baby can be turned to head down by a procedure called a version. This works about half the time. Some doctors will advise a c-section, and a few may even still offer a vaginal breech delivery depending on the circumstances. The baby might even turn itself!

Should I get a vcug for my 2yr old daughter after first UTI at 24mths? Dr wants ultrasound & vcug

Not necessarily: If your daughter is potty trained then no further workup is necessary. If your daughter is not potty trained current thinking allows one urinary tract infection without fever without a workup: ultrasound and vcug. If there is a strong family history of severe urinary tract disease then i would recommend the work up after the first urinary tract infection.

Dr. Michael Carson
Internal Medicine 29 years experience
Weight/Genetics: Diabetes often runs in families, and 70% of women with gestational diabetes will get diabetes later in life. Major risks include obesity (body mass index >30), older maternal age, past history of gestational diabetes, and ethnicity (african americans, native americans, south asia/india, hispanic, pacific islanders, and some from the caribbean). Be sure to get re-tested 6-12 weeks after delivery.
