Does an irregular shaped gestational sac mean miscarriage if baby is measuring 6w5d and heart beat 126? I am 6w6d.

Not necessarily: Having a fetal heart beat and measurements consistent with dates are reassuring. Most ob/gyn would simply follow one with serial ultrasounds until they are reassured that the baby continues to grow normally. ...Read more

Can bicornuate uterus be a reason for irregular shaped gestational sac if hCG and yolk are good?

Can bicornuate uterus be a reason for irregular shaped gestational sac if hCG and yolk are good?

A bicornuate: Uterus can have different degrees. I do not think that this should affect the shape of the sac. In fact, if there is a yolk sac and the bhcg is going up I would trynot to worry too much about sac shape. Not much u can do anyway and those ultrasound bills can add up. Gd luc. ...Read more

Hi I am 6 weeks 5 days. Dr said gestational sac is large and irregular. Last week hCG was 90, 000. Hb144. Is this a bad sign for viability?

Hi I am 6 weeks 5 days. Dr said gestational sac is large and irregular. Last week hCG was 90, 000. Hb144. Is this a bad sign for viability?

Possible: If there was no fetus and / or no yolk sac, then the pregnancy is not likely to be normal or viable. By 6 weeks and five days there is always a fetus and a yolk sac and there is almost always fetal heart motion. ...Read more

My doctor said my gestational sac was abnormally shaped. What does that mean? And should I be worried

Followup is needed: Gestational sacs can vary somewhat in shape. However, if an experienced ultrasonographer thinks a sac is irregular, then a followup study is usually scheduled. At that time both the sac and fetus can be evaluated. ...Read more

Irregular gestational sac with yolk and hCG doubling. Is there still a chance that irregularity may revert to normal?

Possibly...: An irregular sac is a little confusing, but with the appearance of a yolk sac, one should see a fetal pole with heart motion within the next 72 to 96 hours, so hang in there! ...Read more

I am 6 weeks pregnant I had beta hgc in 40 h growing 6000-6300, gestational sac became irregular, 2 days earlier was oval. What can I do? Progesterone?

I am 6 weeks pregnant I had beta hgc in 40 h growing 6000-6300, gestational sac became irregular, 2 days earlier was oval. What can I do? Progesterone?

Nothing, Sadly: We do not have treatments to save a failing pregnancy except in unusual circumstances. Most miscarriages are genetically abnormal - they have the wrong number of chromosomes. Most of the remaining pregnancies are abnormal for other reasons and only about 7% of miscarriages have both normal chromosomes and normal fetal development. Speak with your doc and follow carefully. Best wishes. ...Read more

Measuring 6 weeks 3 days at 8weeks 6 days pregnant and an irregular gestational sac. Have had brown spotting but stopped now. What's my prognosis?

Not good: If you are really 8wks, 6 days should have been able to see a fetus with a ht beat and even if you were really 6 weeks 3 days can often see a fetus with a htbeat you most likely have a missed AB can confirm for sure by doing repeat US 1 week form the last one your provider should have already told you all of this ...Read more

Irregular gestational sac. At 5-6 weeks. Will this lead to misscarriage? Doctors folic acid, does it help?

Maybe: Too early to know. Soon on ultrasound you should see the pregnancy and heartbeat. If those occur then likely everything will be fine. Early on it is common for the sac to be irregular! ...Read more

What does a small irregular gestational sac containing a yolk sac indicate? I have had some bleeding. When is this considered a miscarriage?

What does a small irregular gestational sac containing a yolk sac indicate? I have had some bleeding. When is this considered a miscarriage?

Give it time: The yolk sac and gestational sac are the earliest structures to form inside the uterus. If on a repeat US, you don't see a small embryo, it can be correlated with the time of your pregnancy, your hormonal levels and that can be used to determine the viability of the pregnancy.

Gestational sac of 9mm with no yolk sac and fetal pole in six weeks with irregular periods means?

Gestational sac of 9mm with no yolk sac and fetal pole in six weeks with irregular periods means?

May be normal: 9mm gs is still too small to see pole or yolk sac. Irreg menses makes it more difficult to verify gest age at this time. Recommend to follow serial bhcg levels or wait to repeat sono in a couple of weeks if no pain or bleeding. ...Read more

Does a teardrop shaped gestational sac at 6weeks of pregnancy suggest something bad? A yolk sac and a heartbeat could be seen. Thank you!

None at all: No, at 6 weeks the shape of the GS is highly non-specific. If the rest of the scan is normal (sounds like it is) things seem okay for now. Good wishes. ...Read more

Seems ok: If this week it is measuring 7/4 and one week ago it was measuring 6/3, that is appropriate. An irregular gestational shape is non-specific. Heart rate is good and baby looks perfect. Something to be thankful for. ...Read more

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

Please go see MD: Please go back to the MD for follow up testing. He/she is concerned about a molar or ectopic pregnancy with such a high HCG level and no evidence of an organized gestational sac and fetal pole. Perhaps, the fetal pole will appear on the follow up ultrasound and an intrauterine pregnancy will be confirmed. ...Read more

I passed a gestational sac that was about 1 in. How far along could I have been?

Estimation of Dates: I am soryy to hear that you have had a miscarridge.
The best estimation of dates is obtained from the time of last menstral period. The size of the gestational sack would not give us any accurate information of dates, but a small sack would be unlikely to be more than a few weeks old. ...Read more

A gestational sac measuring 12.37mm is I how many weeks approximately? I thought I was 5 weeks 2 days.

A gestational sac measuring 12.37mm is I how many weeks approximately? I thought I was 5 weeks 2 days.

Patience is Key: It is best to calculate your pregnancy age by measuring the crown rump length which can be done in 2 more weeks after the embryo and heart beat are seen. Measuring Gestational sac is not that accurate for dating a pregnancy. So, please see your doctor in 2 weeks. Take Care. ...Read more
