Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

I had scan on 8th mth & my fetus AC different 5 wks with gestation age, will this cause Pulmonary Atresia or any other problem? What cause this?

I had scan on 8th mth & my fetus AC different 5 wks with gestation age, will this cause Pulmonary Atresia or any other problem? What cause this?

5 weeks big/small: It matters whether the AC is measuring bigger or smaller than the rest of the measurements. My first thought would be if it were bigger that you may have gestational diabetes? Consider rephrasing with this part in the question. ...Read more

Is a small gestational sac in relation to the fetus a sign of a chromosomal abnormality. Fetus 9w sac 7w. Doctor and research have me very worried.

Is a small gestational sac in relation to the fetus a sign of a chromosomal abnormality. Fetus 9w sac 7w. Doctor and research have me very worried.

Hard to answer...: At such an early stage, imaging and interpretation is hard. There are associations between size and abnormalities. But it is impossible to look at a minimally smaller size and conclude anything, especially chromosomal disorders. It is best not to worry, but follow this serially and monitor progress. Your OB is the best judge of this and should advice you of intervention if at all needed. ...Read more

Doctor visit: You will need to review the sonogram with the doctor treating your pregnancy. They can evaluate your gestational dating criteria. Previous sonograms can be used as points of comparison. They can also calculate the estimated fetal weight to confirm that growth restriction is not occurring. Any further testing can be ordered if needed ...Read more

Lab range for HCG values on report states gestational age 0.2-1 week expected range 50 -500, 1-2 weeks 100-5000, 3-4 weeks 500-10000. Is this fetus age not gestational (ieLMP dated) age given first 2 wks are leading up to ovulation ie no HCG produced?

Fetal or embryo age: Because there is is no fetus until 2 weeks into a pregnancy (yes, it's an odd but standard way of counting dates), there is no bHCG until after 2 weeks gestational age. Also, the bHCG is not detectable until implantation, because the bHCG needs to be able to get from the embryo into the uterine lining, into the mother's circulation, into the mother's blood or urine sample. ...Read more

At what gestational age of fetus should the bpd measure approximately 4.1cm (41mm)?

How much of a risk is gestational diabetes to the fetus?

Profound.: High blood sugar during fetal development can lead to excessive growth (macrosomia), predispose to adult diabetes mellitus, increase the risk for cesarean section, shoulder dystocia and fetal death from cardiac arrhythmias and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Most women with gdm have normal outcomes, but are at increased risk for all of the above, as well as polyhydramnios, preeclampsia (hypertension). ...Read more

I'm 21 weeks of gestation,  how can I know that the fetus is well? 
Can dopplar study be reassuring?

Ultrasound: Many moms do find reassurance in US as they can actually see their developing baby moving around and the physician can check anatomy. They aren't required though. Your OB is monitoring your growth and the babies heart rate - two parameters that are followed to see if everything seems to be progressing normally. ...Read more

Miscarriage is potentially serious and can result in significant blood loss, so call 911 4 help ...Read more

Never pregnant: Sounds like what is known as a mole. This is not a miscarriage, but rather was never a viable fetus. It simulates pregnancy, but there is no baby present, only the other gestational contents that will pass but sometimes require dilation and curettage. Sometimes this is the result of an unfertilized egg abberrantly dividing. ...Read more

Ultrasound; Gestational sac at 10 weeks looks 5 times bigger than fetus ( which looks 7 weeks ) should i be concerned ?

Ultrasound; Gestational sac at 10 weeks looks 5 times bigger than fetus ( which looks 7 weeks ) should i be concerned ?

Not really: There are several parameters that are measured to follow fetal growth in utero: biparietal diameter, femur length. They don't measure size of fetal sac, so no comparable data available and it's just nonsense to talk about it. ...Read more
