6w 4d pregnant with fetal pole, yolk sac ...heartbeat detectd...but seems gestational sac is irregular...sign of miscarriage?

6w 4d pregnant with fetal pole, yolk sac ...heartbeat detectd...but seems gestational sac is irregular...sign of miscarriage?

Don't worry: The most important thing is that the fetus has a heartbeat. Did they tell you an actual fetal heart rate? Sometimes the gestational sac looks different. There could be a nearby fibroid or subchorionic hemorrhage. Signs of a miscarriage are uterine cramping and bleeding. If you are not having those symptoms I would not worry about this. The sonogram can be repeated in 1-2 weeks. ...Read more

Will contractions at 12weeks slow fetal heartbeat?

Will contractions at 12weeks slow fetal heartbeat?

No: At 12 weeks, the fhr usually settles into the normal range of 120-160, but tends to be on the higher end of the range. Contractions of the uterus, whether spontaneous, or, for example, associated with orgasm, are not harmful to the fetus. ...Read more

10 weeks transvaginal ultrasound baby heartbeat is 183 what about gender of baby?

10 weeks transvaginal ultrasound baby heartbeat is 183 what about gender of baby?

20 weeks for gender: Domea: the gender of the baby is usually seen at the time of your full anatomy scan which is 18-20 weeks. Sometimes it can be seen sooner or sometimes the baby's position and other factors keep us from seeing it even when you are at the right gestational age. The heart rate is not a good predictor of the baby's gender. ...Read more

Is 127 a normal fetal heartbeat at 40 weeks pregnant.

Is 127 a normal fetal heartbeat at 40 weeks pregnant.

Yes…: The normal range for fetal heart rate (FHR) is 120-160, so 127 is considered normal. However, the FHR alone is insufficient in determining the wellbeing of a fetus. In general, a moving baby is a healthy baby. There are other tests to see if the fetus is doing well such as a non-stress test (NST). ...Read more

U/s at possibly 7w5d gestational sac and fetal pole measuring at 6w1d but no yolk sac or heartbeat. Miscarriage or miscalculation?

U/s at possibly 7w5d gestational sac and fetal pole measuring at 6w1d but no yolk sac or heartbeat. Miscarriage or miscalculation?

Dates could be off: I would not expect to see definite fetal heart activity at 6wk 1dy. A repeat ultrasound in one week will resolve the question. If the pregnancy is viable there should be appropriate interval growth and definite fetal heart activity. If not, then there had been an early fetal demise. In cases of blighted ovum a fetal pole does not develop. ...Read more

39 weeks pregnant increased fetal movement sign of labor?

39 weeks pregnant increased fetal movement sign of labor?

No: Increased Fetal Movement is not a common complaint. It is not a sign of labor. If you just ate a huge carbohydrate meal then maybe you have some increased movement. In pregnancy, I usually follow one rule. If you find something is not usual and normal for you go to Labor and Delivery and get the baby checked with a Non Stress Test. This is the only safe thing to do. ...Read more

Blighted ovum: A gestational sac without a fetal with a gestational age of almost 7 weeks is most likely a blighted ovum (non development of the fetus). Most likely with result is a miscarriage. If not you may need a D&C. Follow up with your gynecologist in 1-2 weeks. ...Read more

Ultrasound at 6weeks 2days pregnant shows gestational sac, yolk sac, fetal pole n heartbeat (133bpm).
What are the chances of miscarriage after this?

Risk is decreased: The fact the fetal pole has a heartbeat is very good and encouraging. However, the risk of miscarriage is still present until 12-13 weeks. That is why most celebrities do not release statements about pregnancy, due to the fact that miscarriage can happen. After this time, with a normal fetal heartbeat and placenta, the risk of miscarriage drastically decreases. ...Read more
