Can vanishing twin be found if we wait a week?

Can vanishing twin be found if we wait a week?

Generally not.: If you are really early in the first trimester, poor imaging may be confusing and suggest vanishing twin, where there isn't any. In such cases, it never hurts to look again in a week to make sure the correct diagnosis is entertained. ...Read more

I recently had a blighted ovum. I'm now pregnant again and going in for a 7 week ultrasound. Will they be able to tell if this pregnancy is viable?

I recently had a blighted ovum. I'm now pregnant again and going in for a 7 week ultrasound. Will they be able to tell if this pregnancy is viable?

Assuming: that the transvaginal dating confirms 7 weeks, a heartbeat should be detected in a normal pregnancy. If it is 6 weeks, a heartbeat may or may not be detected, and if it is 5 weeks or less, probably won't be detected even in a normal pregnancy. This is also assuming that the gestation is otherwise normal in appearance. ...Read more

How late can you detect a heartbeat from twin pregnancy with transvaginal ultra sound? If demise of one twin will other twin have issues?

How late can you detect a heartbeat from twin pregnancy with transvaginal ultra sound? If demise of one twin will other twin have issues?

Twin is high risk..: Generally, embryonic cardiac activity is seen between 5 and 6 menstrual weeks of pregnancy - single or twins or triplets. If both fetuses share a single placenta (monochorionic, monoamniotic placentation), and if one is demised, the other will likely have problems. A main concern is the effects of twin-twin transfusion. ...Read more

Is there a way to tell a fetuses lung maturation before they're born at 35.5 wks? Would labour be stopped at this point if water had broken?

No and No: An amniocentesis can be done to assess for pg which would suggest fetal lung maturity, but there is not definitive test. Labor should not normally be halted after 34 weeks gestation. ...Read more

No: Ultrasound will detect pregnancy from about 5 weeks and cannot see it at 11 days post intercourse. A high beta level of 23k suggests you are much further along than 11 days. ...Read more

I am 12 weeks pregnant but have a second embryo which i was told is a yolk sac and not viable. What will happen to it? Is the viable embryo safe?

I am 12 weeks pregnant but have a second embryo which i was told is a yolk sac and not viable. What will happen to it? Is the viable embryo safe?

Most likely yes: Alternatively, the seconmay sac may be a an aenbryonic pregnancy. An aenbryonic pregnancy is estblished if a transvaginal ultrasound reveals a sac with a mean gestational sac diameter (mgd) greater than 13 mm and no yolk sac, or an mgd >18 mm with no embryo.Your pregnancy should be followed w/ ultrasound to assure no complications occur (unlikely) and the viable embryo develops. ...Read more

Can you have a negative hpt at 9 weeks and still be pregnant? Is it true that some women don't get a positive hpt until their second trimester?Thanks

Can you have a negative hpt at 9 weeks and still be pregnant? Is it true that some women don't get a positive hpt until their second trimester?Thanks

No, and not true.: A pregnant woman cannot have a true negative test after 5 weeks of pregnancy. Women who don't do a home pregnancy test until in their second trimesters will not get a positive result until their second trimesters... but only women who cannot tell that they are pregnant until their second trimesters fall into that category. The rest of the women will test in their first trimesters and be positive. ...Read more

Doctor said fetus will typically pass in missed miscarriage. Have you heard of a case where it did not pass naturally?

Doctor said fetus will typically pass in missed miscarriage. Have you heard of a case where it did not pass naturally?

Of course: The likelihood of a miscarriage completing naturally is high in the first 8 weeks or so of pregnancy, and much less good between 8 and 14 weeks. Needing a D&C is very common at this stage. After 14 weeks the story again varies. If this doesn't sound familiar I recommend talking again with your doctor; you can also resubmit here on Health Tap with more specifics. Good wishes, hope this helps. ...Read more
