Yes: The gestational sac is the first thing to appear. In a few days, likely they would be able to see a fetal pole, or the beginnings of an embryo. After that, a few days later, a heart beat. Sometimes unfortunately a sac appears but then no fetal pole, so make sure you have a follow up ultrasound to confirm an intrauterine pregnancy. Good luck! ...Read more

Sonogram (Definition)

An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more

Is it possible for ultrasound in pregnancy to give inaccurate dates? I think if further along by 3 wks, 1st trimester

Is it possible for ultrasound in pregnancy to give inaccurate dates? I think if further along by 3 wks, 1st trimester

Not 1st trimester: A professionally done first trimester ultrasound is accurate to +/- around 3 days, so there is no way to 'mistake' dates by 3 weeks. Ultrasound by a non-qualified individual could be off by this amount I suppose, otherwise they are extremely accurate. ...Read more

If you have had an ultrasound done showing you are just under 4 weeks pregnant on the 5 of april how do you work out when you might have conceived ?

The ultrasound dating is counted from the first day of bleeding in the most recent period so conception would be about two weeks later. Report that indicates a less than four weeks gestational age probably does not show evidence of pregnancy. ...Read more

I am 4 weeks pregnant . Internal ultrasound says "cyst structures measuring 10 mm, 8mm seen lateral to right ovary" is it something to be worried about?

I am 4 weeks pregnant . Internal ultrasound says "cyst structures measuring 10 mm, 8mm seen lateral to right ovary" is it something to be worried about?

Normal Cysts: This can be totally normal. In fact i would be worried if i did not see a cyst in your ovary because that would mean that you were not creating eggs. A 10mm and a 8mm cyst is normal; anything 50mm or anything with grey matter in it is more concerning. Your md can follow up in a few months. Make sure you're having regular periods. ...Read more
