Sac meaning unclear: If the sonographic measurements of your 8 week embryo, its cardiac activity and the yolk sac were all normal, there may be very little cause for alarm . At this early point in your pregnancy, measuring the size of the gestational sac may be quite imprecise and the meaning of a "very large sac" is rather unclear and is probably insignificant.
