Ultrasound result: single live intrautrerine pregnancy,presently cephalic,20weeks and 5days gestation,oligohydramnios fetal ascites..what can i do

See perinatologist: Its frightening to have an ultrasound that gives news that isn't perfect. Oligohydramnios means that there isn't enough fluid around the baby. You can help make more fluid by drinking lots and lots of water and getting enough rest. You need to see a perinatologist to find out why.

I am meant to be 6weeks and 4 days pregnant. Went for a transvirginal scan which only showed a gestation sac and yolk sac no fetal pole. Is this indicating a miscarriage  . ?

Not necessarily: While it is possible that you are having a miscarriage, it may be that the pregnancy is just too early to see the fetal pole on US. Rescanning you in a week should reveal what you are looking for. In the meantime, watch for signs/symptoms of miscarriage - cramping, bleeding, etc. Good luck! ...Read more
