Is this normal pregnancy or miscarriage? Report details: single intrauterine gestational sac seen measuring 2.2 cms, corresponding to 6+ weeks no fetal

A little early: It sounds like your sonogram showed a very early pregnancy. Since no baby was seen there are two possibilities - too early to see or a miscarriage where the baby did not form. The sonogram will needed to be repeated in 1 -2 weeks to find out which is correct. ...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

I am 8.5 weeks of pregnant & I've done u/s today and the reports is - single intrauterine gestation sac of 6 weeks, fatal pole not seen. Plz suggest?

Get hCG levels: Measured approximately 3 days apart and a followup ultrasound in a couple of weeks (if the HCG levels are rising).

Also, was the u/s transvaginal, or transabdominal? Transvaginal can see smaller structures sooner than transabdominal. ...Read more

U/s:single intrauterine gestation sac & fetal pole crown2rump 0.53cm 6w3d + or - a wk no yolk sac/ hb. Nxt u/s i'll be 11wk. Should I worry? Dating off?

A little concerning: More information needed but if a fetal pole is present and can be measured, then a fetal heart beat should seen. If there is just a gestational sac with no fetal pole, then the size of the gestational sac matters. A gestational sac that measures 18mm should have fetus with a heartbeat and if not, then a miscarriage is most probable. Good luck. ...Read more

Work close w/ OBGYN: Considering your history and how much this seems to matter to you, my advice is to develop a really good relationship w/ your OBGYN. Ask these questions and try to stay w/ it until you understand. They want you to relax and take good care of yourself, so it will help all of you. I hope it's fine and you have a good pregnancy, birth and beyond. ...Read more

Unspecified ectopic pregnancy W/O intrauterine preg. Told a gestational sac and yolk sac was seen between the left ovary and uterus. What that mean?

Tubal pregnancy: If the expanation is accurate, it means that a pregnancy could exist in your tube (left). This would be an "ectopic" pregnancy, and needs to be removed, or your tube may rupture and cause a surgical emergency. Consult your health care professional without delay. ...Read more

Single intruterine fundal gestational sac is seen with no detectable fetal pole development at 7 weeks 4 days will the baby survive looks like 5weeks?

Less likely: So, the first assumption is that the dating is correct. If you are truly 7+4 weeks, there should be both a fetal pole and a heartbeat. But for various reasons you may be only 5-6 weeks so worth repeating ultrasound to make sure ...Read more

Empty gestational sac at 5 weeks, is this normal?

Empty gestational sac at 5 weeks, is this normal?

Yes: The yolk sac typically appears at 5 1/2 weeks, and the embryo by 6 weeks, on transvaginal ultrasound, so 'empty' sac at 5 weeks can be normal. ...Read more

Is triangular shape of gestational sac normal?

Is triangular shape of gestational sac normal?

It depends: The triangular shape is made by the uterine cavity, so depending on the angle of the ultrasound shot, it is possible for the sac to appear triangular in shape. This is to be distinguished from an 'irregular' shaped sac which invariable suggests a poor outcome for the embryo. ...Read more

Gestational Sac: The gestational sac is the first ultrasound sign of pregnancy. You will usually see it beginning 5 weeks from your last menstrual period. By 6 weeks you should see the yolk sac and by 6 and 1/2 to 7 weeks the embryo. ...Read more

My wife's LMP is 9 w1d n having single unhealthy gestational sac of 5w5d what I do?

Need clarification: If you should be 9 weeks along and the sac only measures 5 weeks then something is wrong. Either she is less pregnant than you thought or the pregnancy is not developing normal. It will be important to discuss this with your doctor and seek clarification. ...Read more

Gestational sac has consistently measured 1-2 wk behind baby. Baby growing normally according to dates with a good hb. Worrying? Space to grow?

Gestational sac has consistently measured 1-2 wk behind baby. Baby growing normally according to dates with a good hb. Worrying? Space to grow?

GS size: GS size correlates very poorly with dates, so I would not worry much so long as the baby CRL continues good growth. Obviously it's not possible to say more online; just keep up with your regular visits, and keep good communication with your doctor. ...Read more

Gestational sac measuring 2 mm u/s shows 4 weeks but I was 4.5 days. Bloodwork done in 5w3d first hcg6500 and 5w5d second 9994 after 47hr. Normal?

Levels: Ideally you would see the HCG levels double in 48 hours. If you had a blood Progesterone test those results would be helpful too about the prognosis of the pregnancy. Ultrasound with levels that high would likely have seen a fetal pole. ...Read more

Could gestational sac measure small due to dehydration? The baby is measuring normal with a normal hb but the sac is measuring almost 2 weeks behind.

Could gestational sac measure small due to dehydration? The baby is measuring normal with a normal hb but the sac is measuring almost 2 weeks behind.

No: Dehydration does not affect the size of the gestational sac because the fluid around the developing embryo does not come from your body systems. The size of the embryo is a more reliable measure of gestational age and thus should be used when possible. ...Read more

Should we be concerned that the gestational sac is a week behind and I'm already at 9 weeks? Is there a way to increase the size of the sac, ie water?

Should we be concerned that the gestational sac is a week behind and I'm already at 9 weeks? Is there a way to increase the size of the sac, ie water?

How's the baby?: If the fetal pole is the correct size I'd ignore GS measurement 100%, it's not very exact. If baby is not the correct size it's more worrisome. No, you cannot do anything to change the sac size. Good wishes. ...Read more

At 6 wks both we’re measuring exactly 6 wks but at 9wks 5 days the fetus was measuring appropriately but the gestational sac was measuring 8wks 6days?

Measurement error?: It might be within measurement error - depending on how the image is taken of the fetus and gestational sac, maybe it's at an off-angle. It takes only a couple mm to account for a <1w difference in estimation. Regardless, I don't believe there is anything indicated to be done at this time but wait for next ultrasound. Best of luck ...Read more

Gestational sac measuring 12.37mm and no yolk. Is this a blighten ovum?

Gestational sac measuring 12.37mm and no yolk. Is this a blighten ovum?

Blighted ovum: It could be...or it could just be a very early pregnancy. The best way to tell is by getting quantitative blood HCG tests 2-3 days apart. The HCG (pregnancy hormone) should double about every 2 days if the pregnancy is normal. Getting another ultrasound in 7 days would also show if the pregnancy is normal or not. ...Read more

Is it good if the gestational sac was found?

Probably: I would need to know more about the situation to know for sure. In general its a good thing to see the gestational sac on ultrasound. Its better if you also see a fetal pole and a heart-beat but these are seen a little later in pregnancy. Best wishes! ...Read more
