Abdominal u/s showed gast. sac at 4 weeks 4 days. One week later, transvag. (not abdominal) u/s showed 4 weeks 6 days. U/s type discrepancy? Miscarry?

Transvaginal: sonography is generally more accurate than transabdominal sonography in early pregnancy. Also, the inherent error range for ultrasound dating at this stage is about +/- 3 days, so it may be likely that all is well, but follow up with your doc to make sure. ...Read more

What size should a gestational sac be at 5 weeks 4 days? Is 4 mm ok?

What size should a gestational sac be at 5 weeks 4 days? Is 4 mm ok?

Mean sac diameter: The msd is one measurement used to estimate gestational age. The crown rump length is more accurate once a fetal pole is visible. General rule of thumb with msd is to add 30 days to the # of mm's. A sac of 4 mm would, therefore, suggest age of 34 days or approximately 4 weeks 6 days. You may just be earlier than you think, which happens quite often. ...Read more

I'm 5 weeks 4 days ultrasound showed gestational sac only hCG of 8,419. Is this pregnancy normal?

I'm 5 weeks 4 days ultrasound showed gestational sac only hCG of 8,419.  Is this pregnancy normal?

Possibly: The fetus is not always visible at this gestational age, but I can't exclude a blighted ovum with what you're reporting. In my practice, I would repeat your hcg a couple days later and repeat the US in 7-10 days. ...Read more

Extremely low #'s!
approx 4 weeks prego. First lab hCG 17.5 and prog. 4. Second lab 48 hrs later, hCG 47 prog. 16.6. Prepare for miscarriage?

What did your OB SAY: Your OB should be explaining everything to u ! your beta did double in 48 hrs and the prog went up , u may have caught a viable preg very early, u need another beta and prog is 48-72 hrs the rule is a double in 72 hrs or up 66% in 48 hrs , if it keeps doubling should be able to see a sac in the uterus when the beta is 2500 and a ht beat at 6 1/2 weeks gestation. ...Read more

I'm 34 weeks & 4 days. Is that gestational age / fetal age?

I'm 34 weeks & 4 days. Is that gestational age / fetal age?

Likely gestational: Most of the time pregnancy is described in terms of gestational age. This is of historical relevance because prior to the invention of imaging technologies the most reliable mark of timing of pregnancy was the first day of the last menses. Ovulation occurs 14 days thereafter on the average. So fetal age is two weeks less than the menstrual or gestational age. ...Read more

Vaginal ultrasound did not detect heartbeat at 6 weeks 4 days. Seen the sac and embryo. Risk of miscarriage?

Vaginal ultrasound did not detect heartbeat at 6 weeks 4 days. Seen the sac and embryo. Risk of miscarriage?

50/50: At this point i would say your chances are about 50/50. A vaginal sonogram at 6 weeks and 4 days can usually see a heartbeat; but if your dates are off a little, it could be too early. As long as you aren't having a lot of pain or heavy bleeding, waiting a week and rechecking the sonogram is probably best. ...Read more

4 wk pregnant at 3 days of pink spotting. Hcg was 59 at 3 weeks 6 days. Doc thinks implantation. Numbers ok? Worried about miscarriage.

Need serial betaHCG: Your blood betaHCG of 59 seems a bit low and your concerns are understandable. But if your HCG levels are repeated about every 2 days and they continue to double accordingly, you and your obstetrician can have a better idea of the progress of your pregnancy until a pelvic sonogram can be indicated. ...Read more
