Doctor insights on:
Is there a tight link between first trimester subchorionic hemorrhage and second trimester preterm premature rupture of membranes?
No big deal.: Detecting renal problems by fetal ultrasound is very accurate and efficient because it can prevent serious complications postnatally. Fetal renal pyelectasis or even hydronephrosis is nothing to worry about, provided the amniotic fluid is monitored and remains normal. The neonatology team should be notified at birth to institute appropriate follow-up for the newborn; monthly ultrasounds are needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is this normal pregnancy or miscarriage?
single intrauterine gestational sac seen measuring 2.2 cms,corresponding to 6+ weeks
First ultrasound showed healthy fetus, second ultrasound no fetus or heartbeat. Did I have a miscarriage?

What changes a due date? And why is the first trimester ultrasound more accurate than the second trimester ultrasound?
Ultrasound dating.: First trimester ultrasound is by far the most accurate in determining the precise due date (+/- 3-7 days, depending on exactly when it is performed). Second trimester sonograms are less accurate but still helpful in pegging down the due date within +/-7-12 days. Third trimester scans are not very accurate in dating the pregnancy, as growth varies (+/- 14-21 days). Menstrual dating is not very good. ...Read more

Pregnancy 15 week, ultrasound report.,.. Turner syndrome with cystic hygroma and hydrops fetalis....., your advise required?
Your decision: in the end. These findings in the first trimester usually carry a poor outlook for survival of the baby but there have been many reports of resolution of both cystic hygroma and hydrops as pregnancy progresses. Turner syndrome will always be there. I cannot decide for you but suggest you consider re-evaluating by ultrasound in 3-4 weeks should you decide to continue the pregnancy, you will then know more about the prognosis for the baby and any associated problems such as congenital heart defect etc. see:http://www.turnersyndrome.org/#!child/c4ff ...Read more
