Is It Normal For The Baby Not To Appear On An Ultrasound In Early Pregnancy
Yes: A transvaginal ultrasound can usually identify a gestational sac by 5 menstrual weeks of pregnancy (3 weeks after conception), and by 6 weeks should be able to identify a fetus. If one is clearly past that gestational age failure to see a pregnancy may indicate a problem. It is helpful to coordinate with an HCG blood level. Your doctor can explain further during the ultrasound. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Very premature is a condition in which a baby is delivered between 28 and 31 weeks' gestation. Depending on how premature, how sick, and how lucky or unlucky a baby is, he can get brain problems, cerebral palsy, blindness, deafness, developmental problems, learning disabilities, severe lung diseases, infection and loss of some intestines, etc... Babies who are only moderately premature usually ...Read more
I am pregnant. I went to doctor and they looked through ultra sound couldn't see anything. Said early pregnancy hCG level is 28. Is baby ok?
You tell us: Only you know when you could have gotten pregnant. The answer to this question is only going to be known with dates and more data. What did your physician tell you? Why did you not share that VITAL piece of information in your question? If you are more than six weeks then no baby on ultrasound means the pregnancy is not viable. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I just had a sonogram at 6 weeks 2 days pregnant and the tech said I had a corpus luteum cyst on my ovary. What is this? Is it normal? Especially, if I have had a miscarriage (due to a partial molar pregnancy) and one healthy baby.?
I've had total 7 ultrasounds with my pregnancy beacuse of bleeding i had is it true its bad for the baby iam having another coming up to see gender?
Safe when done right: My understanding of ultrasounds is that when they're done properly, they are safe. Ultrasounds are not like x-rays in which radiation is used. If an ultrasound probe is left in one spot for a very extended period of time, it could potentially raise the temp of the scanned tissue, but it is unclear if that has any ill effect. Recommend you pose this good ? To the radiologist before the next u/s. ...Read more
Are ultrasounds can be dengerous to the baby when it is being done monthly during pregnancy (ob visits)?
Not likely: Why monthly? If there is a problem needing close follow-up this makes sense. Ask your doctor why. But i know of no good evidence that ultrsound exams are any risk to the unborn infant. ...Read more
Hw many times during pregnacy are u suppoe to go for an ultrasound to check the babies weight gain?
As needed: There is no specific recommendation for routine ultrasound exams during a normal pregnancy. However, most women are going to have at least one ultrasound at 18 to 21 weeks, the ideal time to evaluate for normal fetal structures. There will likely be additional sono's if there is a problem with the size of the uterus (abdominal measurements), gestational diabetes, elevated blood pressure, etc. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Had a positive pregnancy test, after 2 days bleed with clot, then a negative test.After 2 months sonogram show a4 week prego. Is this a new baby?
Confirm pregnancy: Have you had any vaginal bleeding in the last 2 months ? You may or may not be in the middle of a miscarriage, but without further proof, the pregnancy cannot be either confirmed or ruled out. A higher sensitivity pregnancy test( B-HCG level), high level fetal ultrasound, and a follow-up visit to your OB is advised, to find exactly what has happened in the last 2 months ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
In my 24weeks pregnency i ultrasound last week , i want to know about baby gender through report?
Question?: I'm confused as to what your question is. Your baby's gender can almost always be determined by an ultrasound study after 17-18 weeks. On occasion it can be difficult to see well enough if the baby is in a "funny" position or if you are quite obese. On occasion you might be told female gender and be surprised by a boy at birth. He was hiding his stuff. The reverse situation does not occur. ...Read more
The sonogram is a test that looks at body organs with no radiation. It uses sound waves and can give us a 2 dimensional view of organs such as the kidney, liver, heart, and lungs. It can define spaces that are either solid or full of fluid. I can also guide large needles into an organ or near the spine, and can help define the area being cut open. Its a ...Read more
