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

Anteverted,bulky gravid uterus,single intrauterine gestational sac 2.7 cm gestational age 6 weeks 6 days no fetal pole is this OK?or a miscarriage?

Blighted ovum: A gestational sac without a fetal with a gestational age of almost 7 weeks is most likely a blighted ovum (non development of the fetus). Most likely with result is a miscarriage. If not you may need a D&C. Follow up with your gynecologist in 1-2 weeks. ...Read more

Gestational sac only grew 3 mm in 10 days. Yolk sac visible; but no embryo seen (7 wks LMP).What are the chances that pregnancy is viable?

Gestational sac only grew 3 mm in 10 days. Yolk sac visible; but no embryo seen (7 wks LMP).What are the chances that pregnancy is viable?

Pregnancy: If ytour dates are accurate, you should be able to see a fetal pole and heart beat by 7 weeks. The sac should grow about 1 mm per day. You should discuss these findings with you doctor, but the chance of viability is verly low. ...Read more

Babyaa 7wks 4days visible gestational sac and fetal pole, no yolk sac heartbeat. Babybb 9wks 4days alive. Could ob/gyn and perinatal ob tested early?

Doubtful: Usually when twin pregnancies occur fertilization happens at approximately the same time. The growth should be very consistent with each other. It appears that baby a will not continue to grow. I'm sorry. ...Read more

U/s at possibly 7w5d gestational sac and fetal pole measuring at 6w1d but no yolk sac or heartbeat. Miscarriage or miscalculation?

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 more

Gestational sac and yolk sac at 5.4 weeks, but no fetal pole. What are the chances an embryo will show up? Worried ab blighted ovum.

No fetal pole: The absence of a fetal pole in a 5+ week gestation is ominous. Check your hCG and Progesterone levels, and repeat both in 48 hrs to monitor the pregnancy. ...Read more

5w 4d pregnant, slightly irregular gestational sac, small yolk sac, hcg 36624, is this abnormal? Viable pregnancy?

Unfortunately not : The sonographic findings associated with your betaHCG levels of 36624 are unfortunately not normal and are usually diagnostic of an "early pregnancy failure". Sorry for your loss. ...Read more

Heartbeat: Clarify with your doctor if a heartbeat was seen in the baby. At 7 weeks a heartbeat should be easy to see. If not then a miscarriage is likely. ...Read more

5 wks. 4 days pregnant. Vaginal ultrasound showed small gestational sac and yolk sac, but could not see embryo? Is this normal? Yolk sac a good sign?

Yes: The yolk sac normally shows up first(before the embryo) on ultrasound at about this time. If all is well, embryo should become visible within a week or so. ...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?

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

Can a large subchorionic hematoma flatten the gestational sac at 7 weeks?

Can a large subchorionic hematoma flatten the gestational sac at  7 weeks?

Depends: The hematoma may give the sac an unusual shape. Usually it does not . If there is a n unusual shape a follow up ultrasound and evaluation should be done within a week or right away if there is painful bleeding , or heavy bleeding. Nature will decide how successful the pregnanacy can turn out .There is nothing you can do to change the eventual outcome for the embryo. ...Read more

Lmp 2/24/13. +serum pregnant 4/1/13.Spotting started 4/10/13 with hCG 215. Us showed no fetus, small sac. 4/12 hCG 310. Could this be a viable pregnancy?

Early pregnancy: The timing is right for a 5 week pregnancy but the HCG is much lower than may be normal. If you are not having any spotting, pain or bleeding, then repeating the ultrasound in 1 - 2 weeks will let you know definitively what is going on. Still, if any of the other symptoms occur, you should see your doctor. ...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 shows gestational age 6w4days.  Yolk sac present only.  Should there be an embryo? Heartbeat?

7 weeks: I usually tell my patients that they should see cardiac activity at 7 weeks . The fetal pole is evident before that. You may want to do beta HCG levels 48 hours apart the change in these values can help answer some of your questions. ...Read more

Bled whole pregnancy. At 7w(lmp) measured 6 weeks with small gestational sac. At 8w (lmp) measured 6w6d with sac at 4.5 weeks. HR 154. Miscarriage?

Bled whole pregnancy. At 7w(lmp) measured 6 weeks with small gestational sac. At 8w (lmp) measured 6w6d with sac at 4.5 weeks. HR 154.   Miscarriage?

Not necessarily: Hi, Without seeing the ultrasounds it is a little confusing. At the first U/S, what was measuring 6wk?> the sac or the fetus, if they saw one. The second U/S would actually be reassuring; they measured a fetus at 6w6d (the difference from LMP would just mean your dates are off), but a fetal heart rate of 154 is reassuring. The continued bleeding is worrisome, but keep the faith! Good luck ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more
