There could be many causes; dehydration, medications, quick movement from bending to standing, vascular malformation. If this continues to persist, see your primary care physician.

What is the probability someone in a large medical group is looking at your EMR when they shouldn't be? Hundreds have access to the same system. Scary

Probably very low: Your concern is understandable. However, most medical practices and groups take personal health privacy very seriously and train their employees about it. Under federal law (HIPAA, which you can google for details), the penalties for non-compliance are very severe, usually $5, 000 fine. Complaints or claims about breeches of confidentiality are rare. ...Read more

Can a 9 week fetus look 7 weeks?

Can a 9 week fetus look 7 weeks?

Maybe but not likely: You have to understand that the usual way to date is weeks from the menstrual period, which is presumed (but not always)2 weeks from conception. But, if a good ultrasound is done and the first third of pregnancy, it should be accurate to within 5 days, not 2 weeks off! If within 5 days, they way still go by the menstrual period or probable date of conception... Talk to your ob!
hope this helps. ...Read more

Do all fetus look the same at 7 weeks?
