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

Internal ultrasound dated me at 6.2 weeks. Heartbeat was seen and measured at 100 bpm. Is this okay?

Normal...: The heart starts beating around 5 weeks gestation and slowly increases in bpm... at 6 weeks 100 bpm is in the expected and normal range. ...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?

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

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

Hey i'm 6 weeks and 6 days pregnant and just had ultrasound showing bub with heartbeat at 170bpm. Is this normal or should I worry?

Hey i'm 6 weeks and 6 days pregnant and just had ultrasound showing bub with heartbeat at 170bpm. Is this normal or should I worry?

Don't Worry: Worrying won't help anything. Fetal heart rate usually peaks at 9-10 wks at 170 BPM so 170 at 7 weeks is a little high. Much too early to think about doing anything and an isolated reading should not be given too much weight. Followup studies will probably be ok. Heart can be better evaluated after 12 weeks. ...Read more

Genetic abnormality: You had an early fetal demise. This is fairly common and most often its a chromosomal (gene) abnormality during early development that is responsible. ...Read more
