Hidden Twins Ultrasound
Ultrasound shows gestational age 6w4days. Yolk sac present only. Should there be an embryo? Heartbeat?
An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more

First ultrasound 6w 3d only found gestational sac & yolk sac no fetal pole. Went after 2 weeks found same result but the sac measured 7w 6d miscarry?
Discuss with doctor : It would not be appropriate for us to make a definitive statement without all the information. I will say that a fetus should be visible in a gestational sac 7-8 weeks size. Ask your doctor if you have a blighted ovum. A blighted ovum is where the baby never forms. This can be treated with medication of a surgery called a D and C ...Read more

8 weeks pregnant ultrasound showed 4 weeks.fetal pole n yolk sac not seen gestation sac seen is everything alright?its my first baby
Most likely, YES: Ultrasound is superior to your period in dating early pregnancy. A gestational sac is the first sonographic sign of pregnancy and appears about 4 1/2 weeks. Next is the yolk sac at about 5 weeks. The fetal pole with a heart beat at about 5 1/2 to 6 weeks. So, yes, it appears your pregnancy is progressing normally. ...Read more
Lmp1/28.Hcg levels 8968, 8956, 12000.Yolk sac measured @ 5w6d no baby.Ectopic ruled out.Could late ovulation be making my dates wrong?Blighted ovum?
Repeat Sono.: The HCG levels you provide are meaningless without a times scale. You are about 8 days less along than would be expected from the lmp. Could be late ovulation vs blighted ovum. A repeat sono in a week will answer the question. If viable there should be an embryo and a heartbeat. Good luck. ...Read more
Done 3 urine tests. positive. about 4 weeks pregnant. Vaginal ultrasound scan shows embryo but with no yolk sac. Endo thickness: 19.3mm. Worried?
Give it time: Our technology to detect pregnancies is amazing but sometimes we see structures well before they get formed. Give it time for the sac to form structures; you can repeat the US in 1-2 weeks to assess growth. This can be correlated with hormone level checks as well to ensure appropriate rise Best Wishes Dr M ...Read more
Hemorrhage, lower then average hormones, fetus smaller then normal, gestational sac 2 weeks behind fetus. Chances of trisomy or other abnormalities?
Maybe,miscarriage is: More likely. Not knowing how many weeks pregnant you are, it's difficult to give you more specific information. Usually the above consistent with early pregnancy loss. It is best to follow closely with Gyn/OB. Also try to avoid air travel or long car rides, trips in remote areas until this is settled. Miscarriage is potentially serious and can result in significant blood loss, so call 911 4 help ...Read more
Gestational sac and tiny fetal pole seen on transvaginal ultrasound at 5w3d. However, no mention of the yolk sac. Note said early or abnormal preg. ?
Hard to say: It is normal to see a yolk sac at 5 1/2 weeks but often one does not see a fetal pole by then. I would not be concerned yet. I presume your doc plans to recheck this is in a week and he/she will have a better idea then. ...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
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not likely: A follicle is located within the ovary, and a gestational sac should be within the uterus. Now an ectopic gestation can be located adjacent to the ovary, but the appearance of a follicle is usually very different from a gestational sac. Follicles have very thin walls, and a gestational sac has very thick walls. ...Read more
