Even then, I have seen folks who decorated a nursery based on us have to repaint when baby delivered. ...Read more

What does it mean " the gallblader is physiologically distended" in an ultrasound report. Had fasting for 12hours before the test?

Probably: Means that the gallbladder is normal, as fasting for 12 hours before the ultrasound would be expected to cause the gallbladder to retain bile and become full or distended. Eating causes the gallbladder to empty its bile fluid. It is expected that one would not eat before the ultrasound so the gallbladder can be seen properly. ...Read more

What should be my due date? 1 ultrasound report says that its 11 january But other says that its 20th january 2015 My LMP is 3rd april 2014 (irregular)

Earliest: The earliest ultrasound is the most accurate and I would rely on that since you say your periods are irregular.

All 3 day embryos are pretty much the same size but babies at term can be normal and be 6-9 pounds. ...Read more
