Please discuss with your ob/gyn. A blood test of the pregnancy hormone (HCG) can be performed twice a couple of days apart - if decreasing, would confirm pregnancy loss. ...Read more

Ultrasound says my fetus is 6 weeks 2 days but my gestational sac is 7 weeks 2 days. Heartbeat is normal. Is everything ok?

So the measurement of the sac can vary quite a bit depending on what part was measured. If there is already a fetal heart beat, that is a great sign. Keep your follow up appointments with your OB doctor. ...Read more

If the gestational sac was small it may indicate the pregnancy is earlier than you think. If the sac measured 7 weeks then this may indicate a miscarriage. Contact the doctor ordering the sonogram for clarification ...Read more
