8 weeks pregnant ultrasound showed 4 weeks.fetal pole n yolk sac not seen gestation sac seen  is everything alright?its my first baby

Most likely, YES: Ultrasound is superior to your period in dating early pregnancy. A gestational sac is the first sonographic sign of pregnancy and appears about 4 1/2 weeks. Next is the yolk sac at about 5 weeks. The fetal pole with a heart beat at about 5 1/2 to 6 weeks. So, yes, it appears your pregnancy is progressing normally. ...Read more

By LMP I am 7 weeks pregnant. Ultrasound at 6 weeks 3 days showed irregular sac, no heartbeat or yolk etc. No flow around sac. Hcg rising. Miscarriage?

Early pregnancy: It's too soon to be sure what is going on. Often a woman will ovulate later and the lmp will not be accurate. The best option is to repeat the beta-hcg every 48 hours until 3 results are performed and a repeat ultrasound 1 week after the previous was done. That will usually solve the question. ...Read more

Could have a misdiagnosed miscarriage if no heartbeat seen at 7 weeks?

Could have a misdiagnosed miscarriage if no heartbeat seen at 7 weeks?

Probably not: If the baby (fetal pole) measures 7 weeks and there is no heartbeat seen, it is a miscarriage. The times when we aren't sure are if the fetal pole can't be clearly seen or if the dates are less than 6+ weeks. At that point, we might need to repeat the us in a week to be sure. Even if a miscarriage is diagnosed, you can take the time you need before doing anything about it like a d & c. ...Read more

 IVF/icsi/ccs pregnancy but miscarried at 7 weeks after seeing heartbeat.i had two natural chemical pregnancies.RPL normal.what could be wrong?uterus?

Early abortions X 3: Since your miscarriages are very early this suggests something other than the uterus. I recommend that you have several serum Progesterone drawn at 3 days intervals after ovulation. It may be that with a low Progesterone supplementing with vaginal Progesterone will get you through the critical period. ...Read more

IVF miscarraige: 1) congratulations on you becoming pregnant. 2) this cannot be determined at this time. In your favor: rising hcg presence of pole unfavorable of course is the "gush of blood". However, bleeding sometimes occurs with implantation of the embryp/placental growth. Make sure you're not rh- with a presence of fetal pole, you should see a fetal heart in maximum one week with a normal pregnancy. ...Read more
