Sonogram (Definition)

The sonogram is a test that looks at body organs with no radiation. It uses sound waves and can give us a 2 dimensional view of organs such as the kidney, liver, heart, and lungs. It can define spaces that are either solid or full of fluid. I can also guide large needles into an organ or near the spine, and can help define the area being cut open. Its a ...Read more

My baby is 5 weeks and 6 days but no heartbeat based on the ultrasound.Would my baby have heartbeat at 7th week?

Maybe: Fetal heart activity is very difficult to detect before 6-6.5 wks. If you have not had any bleeding it is likely a heartbeat will be detectable. Good luck. ...Read more

Had ultrasound at 6. 2 weeks one had heartbeat 122. Dr said was a twin other sac in ultrasound will I expel it empty sac or does it go away?

Dissolves: Commonly twin gestation turns into single one due to loss of one fetus. As long as this happens early, there is usually no consequences for the remaining fetus. The other one is reabsorbed. Usually this happens for a good reason, and may mean one is not healthy. You could not have prevented it or caused it either. Get followup U/S to make sure you baby is growing well inside you. Best wishes !! ...Read more

First ultrasound last 09/22/2014 there were two embryos . One 6 weeks and 5 days, other 6 weeks and 3 days. However, no heartbeat was found. ?

Need follow up: You will need a follow up ultrasound in 1 -2 weeks to evaluate the status of the findings. Sometimes the embryo is too small to clearly show a heartbeat prior to 6 weeks. Your doctor will likely correlate this with your lab results. ...Read more

Does it always mean bad if the yolk and heartbeat didnt show at 6 week ultrasound?

Does it always mean bad if the yolk and heartbeat didnt show at 6 week ultrasound?

Time line: If there is no doubt about when a woman conceived, by 6 weeks gestation an embryo with a heart beat should be visible on transvaginal ultrasound. If conception is unknown then the absence of a yolk sac and a heart beat could indicate that the pregnancy is not along as far as believed. ...Read more

Early pregnancy: At 6 weeks pregnant ultrasound is still very limited. We should see a gestational sac and hopefully a fetal pole. This is right on the cusp of when we can see a heart beat. So, a heart beat of 105 is still reassuring. In the next few weeks, baby grows a lot! the next ultrasound (even at 8 weeks) will be even a better and a nice fast heart beat (120 - 180) if all is progressing normally. ...Read more
